Nylon, a robust engineering plastic, possesses exceptional strength and rigidity, along with remarkable bearing and wear characteristics. Owing to its elevated melting temperature, nylon serves as an ideal replacement for metals in high-temperature applications, reducing weight and offering corrosion resistance.

Predominantly employed in the automotive industry, nylon components include engine covers, radiator end tanks, and air intake manifolds. Additionally, its mechanical properties make it suitable for manufacturing machine screws, bushings, gears, and electrical connectors, further extending its applicability. In summary, nylon’s unique combination of strength, stiffness, and high-temperature resistance renders it a versatile material for various engineering applications.

FAQs About Nylon


Nylon is a generic name for a group of synthetic polymers developed by DuPont in 1935. It was the first commercially successful synthetic thermoplastic first used in nylon-bristled toothbrushes. Nylon’s typical characteristics include high tensile strength and modulus of elasticity, high impact resistance, high heat distortion temperature, chemical resistance, as well as; wear, abrasion, and vibration resistance. Nylon is typically produced via two manufacturing methods: Extrusion (Type 6/6) and Cast (Type 6).

Nylon 6 –generally manufactured into sheet, rod, and tube via a liquid casting process. Casting is often the most cost-effective method for producing large-diameter rod, tube, and thick sheets.

Nylon 6/6 – Nylon 6/6 sheet, rod, and tube are usually produced by melting solid polymer pellets and processing them through a thermoplastic extruder. Extrusion is a fast and economical method for making small-diameter rod, tube, and thin sheets. It can be manufactured to any length, which can be an advantage for cost-effectively yielding finished parts.
