A Guide to Nylon Machined Parts: Properties, Applications and Design Considerations

What is Nylon?

Black Nylon Machined PartNylon refers to the group of plastics known as Polyamides. One of the most common engineering plastics in the world, it has outstanding bearing and wear properties.

Brand names include Nylatron®, Tecamid® and Nylacast®.

It is available as a homopolymer, copolymer or reinforced. It can also be pre-conditioned to reduce moisture absorption during its lifetime. Oil filled and glass filled grades are available.
