Nylon 6 is one of the most versatile engineering thermoplastics. It is popular in every major market using thermoplastic materials. Because of its excellent balance of strength, ductility, and heat resistance, Nylon 6 is an outstanding candidate for metal replacement applications. Toughest among all engineering plastics. Build fixtures, guides, jigs, guards, and other manufacturing aids that require good mechanical and tensile strength. Excellent resistance to heat, oils, solvents, and chemicals. Our Neon variety transmits ultraviolet/black light, so you can make objects that glow in the dark.
Concept modeling, Educational projects, Design objects, Ideal for tough objects with living hinges (one or two-layer walls are flexible), Resistant to chemicals, and practically unbreakable.
- Very strong, shatterproof functional objects
- High abrasive resistance, small friction coefficient (slippery)
