Nylon is a thermoplastic obtained from polyamide 6, whose excellent mechanical, electrical and thermal properties allow the most varied applications in various branches of industry. It usually replaces structural and construction metals, taking into account their lightness, electrical insulation, lower cost and low coefficient of friction.
It has high tensile strength, elasticity, toughness and abrasion, keeping its mechanical properties constant even at high or low temperatures, from -40ºC to + 100ºC. With easy machining, good wear and chemical resistance, it also has a low noise that dampens vibration and weight.
It has resistance to common solvents, but it can be dissolved by phenols and formic acid. Some materials become brittle after prolonged exposure to sunlight – it is preferable to use black materials.
