Nylon

Strong, stiff engineering plastic often used to replace metal bearings and bushings

Nylon is a strong, stiff engineering plastic with outstanding bearing and wear properties. Nylon is frequently used to replace metal bearings and bushings often eliminating the need for external lubrication. Other benefits include a reduction in part weight, less operating noise, and decreased wear on mating parts.

NYLON ESD STOCK SHAPES

Electro-Static Dissipative grade(Black). 


Nylon  ESd   – Monocast Nylon feature a proprietary static control additive. 

Nylon  ESD Offer: ​
  • High machine strength rate
  • Superior endurance in friction
  • Endures chemical reactivity
  • Uniformly resists electricity
  • Even after surface wear.

 
Notes – Do not use MC-ESD as an electric part of heat generation,contact point,or terminal.Nylon absorbs moisture or water in case of using under high hunmdity or in water and increases its size (by 2% at the maximum). when such use is necessary,please consult with DTM technical data and design appropriately.
Nylon has water absorption property and increases its size.Design adequately referring to MC technical Data.

Tech Tip – Nylon has relatively high moisture absorption compared with many other thermoplastics. Nylon parts that must perform in wet environments should be designed with tolerances that factor in dimensional changes due to moisture absorption.

EXTRUDED & MC@ POLYAMIDE MATERIALS
Extruded polyamide:Good abrasion resistance, particularly against mating parts with rough surfaces, completes the typical performance package. ..
Polyamide 66 has good rigidity, hardness, abrasion resistance and thermal dimensional stability. In addition...
PA 6 GF30 is a 30 % glass fibre reinforced polyamide offers higher strength, rigidity, creep strength and dimensional stability . 
The addition of molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) to PA6 results in an increase of rigidity, hardness and dimensional stability due to its nucleating effect.
Heat stabilized nylon offering long-term thermal stability to 127°C. It is blue in color and used in a variety of bearing and structural applications...
offers a reduced coefficient of friction (up to 50% lower), considerably increasing the pressure-velocity capabilities, and a vastly improved wear resistance (up to 10 times better).
