These polyamides, commonly referred to as Nylon are available in sheets, rod and tube form. Nylon is produced by either extrusion or casting. The process is in part a determinant of the nylon properties of the end product. Modifiers are added to enhance desirable characteristics.


Nylon is a tough, durable, general purpose engineering material with special grades for specialty applications. Typical application conditions would be medium speed and temperature in a rugged, abrasive, impact and high load environment.


Other benefits of Nylon include:

  • Excellent bearing properties
  • High impact strength and toughness
  • Low power factor requirements
  • High wear resistance
  • Very good sliding properties

Applications of Nylon sheet, rod, and tube:

  • High load bearings
  • Wear pads
  • Support and Guide wheels
  • Conveyor and Tension rollers
  • Wire rope sheaves
  • Buffer pads
  • Gears, etc.


Nylon Products include:

  • Nylon 6SA : High mechanical and damping properties
  • Nylon 66SA : Higher mechanical properties and better dimensional stability
  • Nylon 6PLA : Monomer cast, similar properties to 66SA
  • Nylon 6XAU+: Higher mechanical, wear and creep properties than 6PL
  • Nylon LFX : Self lubricating, increased wear resistance and reduced co-efficient of friction
  • Nylon 4.6 : Polyamide 4.6
  • Nylon 66GF30 : Polyamide 66 glass filled
  • Nylon GS : High mechanical properties with MoS2 filler
  • Nylon GSM : Monomer cast with MoS2 filler
  • Nylon MC901 : High mechanical wear and creep resistance
  • Nylon 703XL : Internally lubricated cast nylon for special applications
  • Nylon Sprockets : Reduced chain wear, lightweight with no lubricant required
  • Nylon Gears : Reduced wear on mating gear, lightweight, reduced noise with no lubricant required
