Nylon material is used frequently in a self lubricating bearing surface or slide type applications. Resistant to most common chemicals.
One of the most popular work horse materials of the mechanical plastics family. The number designations that follow each type of nylon refers to the number of carbon atoms contained in the material’s prior polymerization process.
Nylon is available in Type 6 (cast), Type 6/6 (extruded), Type 6/10, and Type 6/12. Nylon comes in black and natural, and can also be glassed filled or MD ( molybdenum disulfide ). MD is a composition designed to improve the mechanical, thermal, and bearing properties to Type 6/6 nylon while maintaining its basic electrical and chemical characteristics.
