Nylon was the first engineering resin. It has outstanding wear resistance and low frictional properties. It has very good temperature, chemical and impact properties. However, nylon’s one weakness is a propensity to absorb moisture and thus have poor dimensional stability.Grades:
- Tecamid™ 6/6 – type 6/6 general purpose standard grade nylon is extruded in Natural and Black
- Tecamid™ 6/12 – type 6/12 nylon has lower moisture absorption rates than nylon 6/6, hence superior dimensional stability
- Tecamid™ ST – ST is a super tough type 6/6 nylon with increased impact resistance and toughness over Tecamid™ 6/6
- Tecamid™ HS – HS is a heat stabilized type 6/6 nylon with increased ability to withstand the negative effects of heat exposure and increased overall service temperature over Tecamid™ 6/6
Tecamid™ has been used in applications within the electronic, marine and automotive industries, as well as for fibers used to make carpet. It is an ideal material for metal replacement.
