Nylon 6/6 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.

Extruded Nylon sheets have outstanding wear resistance and low frictional properties. Nylon has very good temperature, chemical, and impact properties. Parts machined or fabricated from nylon are light weight and corrosion resistant. Low friction, good abrasion resistance and the ability to operate without lubrication, qualify the nylons for such applications. Parts machined or fabricated from cast nylon are light weight and corrosion resistant. In addition, cast nylon's excellent load bearing capability, wear resistance and impact resistance make it ideal for demanding construction environments. Nylon sheets which has not been compounded with UV stabilizers are sensitive to ultraviolet light. These compounds should not be used for extended outdoor service. 

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.
