Nylon is easily fabricated, is non-abrasive to other materials, and has noise dampening characteristics. Nylon is typically produced via two manufacturing methods: Extrusion (Type 6/6) and Cast (Type 6). This material is well-suited to a variety of additives such as MD, Glass, and Oil to provide special performance characteristics. Typical features 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 NOT Moisture Resistant, except for Nylon 12 Grade.
