Nylon 66 Rod & Sheet

Nylon 66 is a versatile engineering plastic. It is hard and tough, with a high melting point and good wear resistance. It is light, has good chemical resistance and is a good electrical insulator. Nylon 66 will give long service as a wear part with little or no lubrication. It can easily be bonded, welded and machined. Applications include; cams, gears, bearings, bushes, wheels, rollers, pulleys and electrical insulators.
