Nylon 6 Sheet Description

Nylon is a strong, stiff engineering plastic with outstanding bearing and wear properties. Nylon is frequently used to replace metal bearings and bushings often eliminating the need for external lubrication. Other benefits include a reduction in part weight, less operating noise, and decreased wear on mating parts.

Cast Nylon sheets are machinable, wear-resistant, and have higher heat deflection, better solvent resistance, and better hydroscopic characteristics than extruded nylon 6/6 sheets. They are also easier to machine and offer better dimensional stability than standard-grade nylon. They have a slippery face that reduces friction, and are commonly used to make gears, sprockets, and wear strips. The resulting material is strong, tough, and has excellent wear resistance --- up to 20 times that of standard nylon.

Wear-resistant nylon sheets and bars are made with a strong and stiff engineering-grade plastic with bearing and wear properties. Molybdenum disulphide-filled (MOS2) and oil-filled nylons have enhanced wear properties that eliminate the need for external lubrication. The physical properties of nylon include exceptional strength as well as abrasion and chemical resistance. It has a high melting temperature, making it an ideal substitute for metals in high temperature applications. Nylon is commonly used for automotive parts, machine screws, brushings & gears, and electrical connectors.

Applications Include:

  • Clothing
  • Reinforcement in rubber material like car tires
  • Rope or thread
  • Injection molded parts
  • Vehicles and mechanical equipment


Nylon fibers are exceptionally strong, elastic, and abrasion resistant. They are also very easy to wash, while producing smooth and long-lasting fabrics.
