Nylon 6

The general engineering field uses two basic types of nylon and, whilst their physical properties are broadly similar, individual differences will affect their end use.
nylon 6, in both cast and extruded grades, offers the optimum combination mechanical strength, toughness, damping properties and wear resistance. Its electrical properties and good chemical resistance make it the general purpose grade for most mechanical, construction and maintenance applications.

nylon 66 has a higher mechanical strength, stiffness and toughness than extruded nylon 6, although the unmodified cast nylon 6 grade shows similar characteristics. nylon 66 has better heat, wear and creep resistance, but impact strength and mechanical damping ability are less.

It has superior machining qualities and is well-suited to automatic lathes.

Temperature ranges:
nylon 6 -40°C to +100°C (-40°C to +70°C in water)
nylon 66 -30°C to +100°C (-40°C to +70°C in water)
