Leading national supplier of engineering and industrial plastics, E-Plas , offers Sustamid Nylons in a number of commercial stock shape grades.
Also known as Polyamide (PA), nylon is a partially crystalline thermoplastic that provides a variety of desirable properties, making it a popular choice in engineering plastics.
Earning a reputation as an excellent bearing material, Nylon provides:
- good mechanical strength
- abrasion resistance; and
- chemical, thermal and low friction properties.
Nylon is now available in a number of commercial stock shape grades, each with specific properties and benefits to suit a given application. Most are copolymer grades, although much development has been done in recent years with Type 6 Monomer Cast Caprolactum grades.
