Why Use Nylon for Your Plastic Components?
Nylon machining is an effective and affordable way to get the durable product you need. Jaco offers expert plastic machining services for Nylon and a variety of other materials.
Nylon is a thermoplastic material made from synthetic polymers. It is created by using units linked together by peptide bonds and it was the first commercially successful polymer and first synthetic fiber to be made entirely from coal, water, and air.
Nylon is used in a variety of applications, including fabrics, ropes, mechanical parts, and engineering material.
Benefits of Using Nylon
Nylon offers a number of benefits which can be appropriate in a variety of applications. These benefits include:
- It is lightweight
- It offers good wear resistance
- It features high tensile strength and modulus of elasticity
- It has a high heat distortion temperature
- It has high impact resistance
- It can withstand sustained contact with chemicals
- It is wear, abrasion, and vibration resistant
- It melts without burning
- Is able to withstand exposure to chemicals, alkalies, dilute acids or oxidizing agents
Jaco works with a variety of clients who want to use Nylon for precision plastic machining in their applications. The material is ideal for replacing low-to-medium stress components that were previously made from metal. It can also be used for mechanical parts and in fabrics and ropes.
