Basic Knowledge of Nylon

What is Nylon?

Nylon is a synthetic plastic that belongs to the family of polyamides. Nylon was first developed by a team of scientists led by Wallace Carothers at DuPont in the 1930s. It became commercially available in the late 1930s and found various applications due to its desirable properties. Nylon fibers are commonly used in the textile industry to make clothing, hosiery, carpets, and other items. In the plastic industry, nylon produces many products, including gears, bearings, fasteners, and various molded parts.

Nylon comes in various types. Nylon 6 is tough and versatile, Nylon 66 is heat-resistant and used in engineering, and Nylon 11 is derived from renewable sources and is known for chemical resistance. Nylon 12 is used in automotive parts. Nylon 46 has a high melting point and strong mechanics, while Nylon 46 balances toughness and stiffness. Nylon 9 is a biodegradable option, and aromatic nylons have enhanced heat resistance.

Machining Nylon Buying FAQ

Yes, DEK uses state-of-the-art CNC lathes to machine nylon. Depending on your project requirements, you can get well-priced, high-precision turned nylon parts.
Yes, DEK can machine various types of nylon according to your needs, we mainly process nylon 6, nylon 66 and nylon 12, especially nylon 66. nylon 66 is a widely used engineering plastic with good abrasion resistance, toughness and hardness. It is often a good alternative to metal and is ideal for load-bearing mechanical parts. CNC machining of Nylon 66 produces inexpensive, high performance parts.
Nylon parts are used in industries such as automotive, aerospace, electronics, and consumer goods. Common applications include gears, bushings, bearings, and structural components.
Nylon is not inherently waterproof, as it is a porous material. However, certain types of nylon can be treated or coated to enhance their water-resistant properties.
Nylon may degrade when exposed to prolonged sunlight and ultraviolet (UV) radiation. UV stability can vary depending on the type of nylon and any additives used during manufacturing. Some types of nylon may have UV-resistant properties or can be treated to enhance their resistance to UV radiation.
