NYLON   Also: Polyamide -- Extruded Nylon
  Color: Yellow/White
  • Unmodified nylon is the strongest, most rigid material and has one of the highest melting points.
  • Specific gravity is 1.14, about 14% heavier than water.
  • Temp: 194o F is maximum heat deflection, with a melting point of 491o F.
  • Nylonís toughness, good abrasion resistance and low coefficient of friction make it an ideal replacement for a wide variety of materials from rubber to metal.
  • TYPICAL USES: Using nylon reduces lubrication requirements, eliminates galling, and corrosion problems, and improves wear resistance and sound dampening characteristics. Nylon has a proven record of outstanding service in a multitude of parts for such diverse fields as paper, textiles, electronics, construction, mining, metalworking, aircraft, food, and material handling.
