Nylon 6 Sheets

Further Information about Nylon 6 Sheets

Last Modified: 22nd Apr 2016

Nylon 6 sheet is a great wear and abrasion resistant material and is a plastic well suited to machining. It has high mechanical strength and good sliding properties. This plastic is stiff, has good creep stability and is resistant to a good number of oils and chemicals. Our black Nylon 6 sheet has MOS2 which is a very effective graphite type self lubricant and our blue Nylon 6 sheet is heat stabilized to help reduce distortion caused by machining.

Manufacturers produce engineering plastics that are slightly oversize in either diameter and/or thickness. This oversize tolerance, which is listed in the tables below, is provided to assist customers to produce very accurate items within the size shown and remove any minor surface imperfection.

Why choose Nylon 6 or Nylon 6.6?

There is very little difference between the two plastics but here they are anyways for your benefit:

Nylon 6:

  • Greater size range availability
  • Slightly more economical/cheaper
  • Marginally more impact resistant although however it is also slightly softer
  • Can be less high temperature resistant

Nylon 6.6:

  • Nylon 6.6 is very slightly better at operating with higher temperatures
  • May be slightly harder
  • Slightly more expensive
  • A smaller size range and slightly less impact resistance
