Nylon and Acetal are available in round rod, tube and sheet, they can be easily machined and are used for lots of general engineering purposes.
Nylon is the word used to refer to a group of plastics also known as polyamides. Nylon type 6 is the most commonly used grade of nylon and is known for being high impact resistant, vibration resistance, good abrasion and ability to withstand high temperatures. Nylon is one of the most commonly and widely used thermoplastics.
Acetal is known for it’s high strength and stiffness properties, it is also has good machining properties. Our Acetal is copolymer (POMC) which is more resistant and offers slightly improved chemical resistance.
All plastics are supplied oversized on the Outside Diameter and Undersized on the Internal Diameter to allow machining back to listed size. Available to purchase online at Metals4u™ or talk to our customer service team on 01937 534318.
