TPS® Nylon Series

<6 nylon, 66 nylon>

A Typical Industrial Plastic

Nylon (polyamide) is a crystalline plastic with superior mechanical properties, and has superior abrasion/wear resistance, chemical resistance (excluding mineral acids, phenols and the like) and oil resistance, as well as excellent performance as a gas barrier.
Nylon has a high melting point and high water absorption due to its chemical structure. The flexibility and impact resistance of nylon improves when it absorbs water. Nylon 66 has lower water absorption and higher rigidity compared to nylon 6.

Uses

  • Automobile and train components
  • Electronic and electric device components
  • Nylon has low impurities content, and generates extremely little outgases.
  • General industrial devices components

Characteristics

  • Nylon has superior resistance to bases and solvents.
  • Nylon becomes flexible when it absorbs water, and its impact resistance increases.
