One of the oldest and most widely used engineering
plastic which has replaced wood, rubber, metals in various
applications. Nylon’s toughness, low coefficient of friction
and good abrasion resistance make it an ideal replacement for
a wide variety of materials from metal to rubber. It weighs
only 1/7 as much as bronze. Using nylon reduces lubrication
requirements, eliminates galling, corrosion and pilferage
problems, and improves wear resistance and sound dampening
characteristics. Nylon is easily fabricated into precision
parts using standard metalworking equipment. Its good
property profiles combined with broad size range availability
have made the material very popular. Also available in filler
grades of oil and molybdenum disulphide.
