Nylon, first patented in 1935, is a synthetic thermoplastic linear polyamide that quickly became one of the most popular plastics available today. Nylon’s combination of durability and strength has contributed to a rise in its everyday use, and there are a wide range of applications and industries using Nylon components and parts today.
Nylon is now being implemented in the making of machine parts that are highly durable and longer-lasting than many competitive options. Nylon’s thermal resistance, chemical resistance, and low conductivity make it ideal for broad use in industrial applications.
Benefits of Using Nylon
Nylon is a durable material with many admirable qualities. Nylon provides the following benefits:
- High Strength/Durability
Nylon lasts longer than many other materials due to its high resistance to abrasion and wear. It is also resistant to damage from chemicals and hydrocarbons, which helps prevent corrosion and extend product life.
- FDA, USDA 3A Dairy Compliant:
Nylon products can be manufactured in compliance with USDA 3-A Dairy and Food standards and FDA sanitation regulations, making Nylon tools and components ideal in a wide range of commercial and industrial food and beverage applications.
- Easy to Machine:
While many plastics are too fragile, Nylon is one of the most popular polymers for creating tools and components because its chemical properties make it suitable for fabrication and machining.
- Available in Rod, Plate, Tube
Nylon-based parts and components are available in a range of sizes and functions.
Nylon Machined Products
Machined Nylon parts are becoming popular in many industries because of the benefits listed above. Nylon machined parts tend to last far longer due their thermal and impact resistances. Nylon fabricated parts also won’t corrode from chemicals or environmental exposure the way that metal parts do, which makes them ideal for myriad hazardous or messy operations.
The following are examples of Nylon machined components ESPE Manufacturing Co. can provide:
