• 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.

Key Properties:

  • 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
