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 on 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 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.
NYLON is easily fabricated into precision parts using standard metalworking equipment. Its good property profile combined with a broad size range availability have made the material very popular since first introduced in 1946.
