Polyamide Nylon 6/12
What is Nylon 6/12?
Nylon was the first nylon material available in rod, sheet and tube form for industrial application. Nylon is a superior performer. Of all the unmodified nylons, it has the highest melting point, is the strongest, and the most rigid. Nylon is an excellent replacement for a wide range of different materials ranging from metals to rubber beacuse of its toughness, and combination of low coefficient of friction and good abrasion resistance.
This product also has outstanding resistance to alkalies and organic materials, as well as good electrical insulating characteristics and noise damping properties.
Standard metal working equipment is suitable in the fabrication of precision parts. The combination of machinability, excellent properties, and performance have made Nylon the most widely used nylon in American industry.
Nylon 6/12 possesses similar properties to that of Nylon 6/6, however, Nylon 6/12 has a higher temperature rating and lower water absorption.
Nylon 6/12 has a lower modulus, higher elongation, lower strength, lower thermal distortion temperature, lower hardness, and lower melting point than Nylon 6/6. However, Nylon 6/12 absorbs half as much water on Nylon 6/6. Thus, even though the properties may not be as good as Nylon 6/6 in dry conditions; the properties of Nylon 6/12 will be much more consistent when it is used in applications in which water may be present. The absorption of water has a significant effect on the properties of nylon.
