Advantage of Nylon (Polyamide): easy processing, very good strength and hardness, excellent mechanical properties, high damping characteristics, high thermal stability, very good chemical resistance, good toughness at low temperatures, favorable sliding friction behavior.
Applications of Nylon (Polyamide): Nylon is the commercial name for a type of polyamide thermoplastic. It has been used in almost every industry. Polyamide nylon has a wide range of uses including rope, gears and even stockings. It is usually formed into fibers for use in microfilaments and yarns but can also be cast. Polyamide (PA) commonly known as Nylon is possibly the largest engineering thermoplastic material (ETP). It finds major usage in technical applications of several application segments, the three notable ones of them are Automobile, Electronic, Packaging. Nylon is used extensively for injection molding applications in the automobile, electrical, construction as well as furniture industry. The product range includes grades from ultra-low through medium to high viscosity grades for nearly all engineering plastics applications. NYLON with excellent mechanical, thermal and electrical properties. It finds wide application in the production of automotive, electrical parts and industrial parts and components because it has a long-term heat resistance and excellent mechanical strength. It is suitable for use in internal and external parts. Polyamide is the ideal material for use inside engine compartments, because of its exceptional mechanical properties, its high thermal resistance and its very good chemical resistance. These well balanced characteristics are the solution to the heavily increasing demand for metal replacement in applications, such as automotive parts, industrial valves, railway tie insulators and other industry uses, whose design requirements include high strength, toughness and weight reduction.
