Brief Introduction of PA Nylon Materials
Information of PA Nylon
|A white or cream color
|Injection molding, 3D printing
|With drawing: as low as +/- 0.005 mm No drawing: ISO 2768 medium
|Automotive components, consumer goods, industrial and mechanical parts, electrical and electronics, medical, ect.
Available PA Nyloy Subtypes
|PA 6 (Nylon 6)
|Derived from caprolactam
|Offers a good balance of strength,toughness,and thermal resistance
|Automotive components, gears, consumer goods, and textiles
|PA 66 (Nylon 6,6)
|Formed from the polymerization of adipic acid and hexamethylene diamine
|Slightly higher melting point and better wear resistance than PA 6
|Automotive parts, cable ties, industrial components, and textiles
|Bio-based, derived from castor oil
|Excellent UV resistance, flexibility, and lower environmental impact
|Tubing, automotive fuel lines, and sports equipment
|Derived from laurolactam
|Known for its flexibility and resistance to chemicals and UV radiation
|Flexible tubing, pneumatic systems, and automotive applications
General Information for PA Nylon
PA nylon can be painted to improve its aesthetic appeal, provide UV protection, or add a layer of chemical resistance. Proper surface preparation, such as cleaning and priming, is essential for optimal paint adhesion.
Nylon parts can be mechanically polished to achieve a smooth, glossy finish. This is often done for aesthetic reasons or to create a smoother contact surface.
Lasers can be used to mark or engrave PA nylon parts with barcodes, serial numbers, logos, or other information.
