Nylon 66 Sheets

Further Information about Nylon 66 Sheets

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 stabilised to help reduce distortion caused by machining.


Nylon 66 Sheet Tolerances:


Nominal Thickness Tolerance in mm
5 +0.2 to +0.5
6 +0.2 to +0.75
8 - 10 +0.2 to +0.9
12 - 16 - 20 - 25 +0.3 to +1.5
30 - 40 - 50 +0.5 to +2.5
60 - 70 - 80 - 90 - 100 +0.5 to +5

 


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 - 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
