Nylons – A Boon for the Industrial Goods Sector
Polyamides such as PA6, PA66, and PBT are being extensively used to develop a wide range of reliable, innovative, and cost effective industrial products including:
- Fluid Handling
- Heavy Equipment
- Material Handling
- LED Lighting
- Tools and Equipment
- Industrial cleaning equipment
Of all unmodified nylons, PA66 is the strongest with high rigidity and melting point making it a great candidate for screw machined electrical insulators and food contact parts.
Wear and abrasion resistance grades are used to create housings, discs, gears, bushings, wear rings, and impellers used in pumps, and meters, rollers, linkages and wear strips used in conveying systems.
Cast PA6 with an oil-based lubricant that is condensed within the nylon matrix positively influences the load bearing performance of the material. This is higher when compared to unfilled nylons and it also reduces the coefficient of friction. Its industrial application in conveying and processing industries is valuable.
Flame Retardant Resins provide resistance to ignition and burning drain pans, control and blower housings, vents, louvers and plenum space access covers.
Cast Nylon 6 and 66 produce tough, strong, resilient, and highly wear resistant parts that cost effectively replace bronze, brass, iron, steel and aluminum in many heavy-duty industrial applications.
High glowing filament high CTI value PBT is great choice for industrial bearings and bushings.
Ultra-high performance bearing grade of PA6 provides wear resistance with superior load bearing capability. This provides an extraordinary amount of control for high precision applications.
Weight reduction versus metal, operability in corrosive environments and improved durability under a wide range of conditions make these polymers the best option for:
- Pump and tool housings
- HVAC base pans and fan blades;
- Plumbing fittings and valve bodies
- Panels, brackets, handles, and components used in heavy equipment
- Gears for conveyor drives and power tools
