- Nylon was the first engineering resin and has been used in everything from electronics, marine, and automotive applications to fibers used in carpets.
- Nylon has outstanding wear resistance and low frictional properties. It also has very good temperature, chemical, and impact properties. It does, however, have poor dimensional stability, with a tendency to absorb moisture.
- Excellent wear resistance
- More compact molecular structure
- Better weathering properties; better sunlight resistance
- Very good elasticity
- High melting point (256 °C/492.8 °F)
- Superior colorfastness
- Excellent abrasion resistance
- Good resilience
