Nylon (PA) sheet 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.
Nylon is available in a variety of specialty formulations.
Molybdenum disulphide-filled (MOS2 filled) and oil-filled nylons
have enhanced wear properties, while heat stabilized nylon will
withstand higher operating temperatures. For enhanced strength and
stiffness, nylon is also available in glass-filled grades.
-Excellent bearing and wear properties
-Strong and stiff
-Good chemical resistance
-Easy to machine
-Reduced noise, weight, and wear of mating parts compared with many
traditional metal bearing materials
-Nylon billets with metal cores available
-Internally lubricated grades often eliminate the need for external
lubrication in many bearing and wear applications
-Reduction in part weight
-Less operating noise
-Decreased wear on mating parts
