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.
