Nylon was the first engineering resin and has been used in applications ranging from electronic, marine, and automotive industries to fibers used to make carpet. Nylon rod has outstanding wear resistance and low frictional properties.
Nylon has very good temperature, chemical, and impact properties. Parts machined or fabricated from nylon are light weight and corrosion resistant. Low friction, good abrasion resistance and the ability to operate without lubrication, qualify the nylons for such applications. Parts machined or fabricated from nylon are light weight and corrosion resistant. In addition, nylon's excellent load bearing capability, wear resistance and impact resistance make it ideal for demanding construction environments.
Nylon rod which has not been compounded with UV stabilizers are sensitive to ultraviolet light. These compounds should not be used for extended outdoor service. Carbonblack (our black Nylon) is the most effective of the UV stabilizers. These additives also increase tensile strength and hardness and decrease ductility and toughness slightly.
