Nylon 6 has remarkable chemical resistance abilities and excellent insulating qualities. Additionally, nylon 6 has a strong combination of mechanical strength and damping qualities, along with very good creep and abrasion resistance. These factors make nylon 6 an excellent “general purpose” grade for mechanical construction and maintenance applications.
With its good wear resistance and a service life up to 10 times longer than standard nylons, the material is a favoured solution for bearings, gears, wear pads, pulleys, sheaves, bushings, valve seats, and seals.
Nylon 66 has greater mechanical strength, stiffness, creep resistance and heat and wear resistance than its counterpart, nylon 6. Although, these positive characteristics are at the expense of impact strength and mechanical dampening, which are two features found to be stronger in nylon 6.
Nylon 66 is excellently suited for mechanised lathe machining due to its superior mechanical strength and creep resistance. Additionally, nylon 66 can withstand high energy radiation as well as being an excellent insulator, making it a key product in the engineering and technology industries.
Nylon 66 is slightly more expensive than nylon 6, and this is mainly due to the stronger nature of nylon 66.
