Nylon Rod, Nylon Sheet and Nylon Tubes

These Polyamides, commonly referred to as Nylon and available in Sheets, Rod and Tube and are distinguished by different types. The most common engineering Nylons are PA 6 and PA 66. Nylon stock shapes are produced by either extrusion or casting. The process is in part a determinant of the nylon properties of the end product. Modifiers are added to enhance desirable characteristics.


Nylon Advantages:

Nylon Rod, Nylon Sheet and Nylon Tubes are tough, durable, general purpose engineering material with special grades for specialty applications. Typical application conditions would be medium speed and temperature in a rugged, abrasive, impact and high load environment.

Nylon Products:

  • Sustamid 66: Extruded Nylon, PA 66 (Higher mechanical properties and better dimensional stability)
  • Sustamid 6G: Cast Nylon, PA 6 (Similar properties to 66)
  • Sustamid 6G OL: Cast Nylon , PA 6 (Oil-Filled, self lubricating)
  • Sustamid 66 GF: Extruded Nylon, PA 66 (Glass-filled)
  • Sustamid 66 MO: Extruded Nylon, PA 66 (MoS2 filled)
  • Sustamid 6G M: Cast Nylon, PA 6 (MoS2 filled)
  • Sustaglide: Cast Nylon, PA 6 (Lubricating "Matrix" for improved gliding properties)


Key Features Nylon Rod, Nylon Sheet and Nylon Tubes:

  • Excellent bearing properties
  • High impact strength and toughness
  • Low power factor requirements properties
  • High wear resistance
  • Very good sliding properties


Applications for Nylon Rod, Nylon Sheet and Nylon Tubes:

  • Medium load bearings
  • Wear pads
  • Support and Guide Wheels
  • Conveyor and Tension Rollers
  • Wire Rope Sheaves
  • Buffer Pads
  • Gears, etc.
  • Nylon Sprockets: Reduced chain wear, lightweight with no lubricant required
  • Nylon Gears : Reduced wear on mating gear, lightweight, reduced noise with no lubricant required
