Nylon 6.6 is frequently used when high mechanical strength, rigidity, good stability under heat and/or chemical resistance is required.  Here at The Plastic People we have a great range of Nylon 6.6 sheets in different gauges which we deliver nationwide. Please choose your size from our menu above.

Nylon 6.6 offers some key performance advantages over Nylon 6.  Nylon 6.6 can operate at higher temperatures (about 6% higher); it is more rigid by approximately 10%, has better wear resistance and is around 13% harder than Nylon 6.  Being harder, it is easier to machine. Withstanding higher operating temperatures, it is less likely to melt at the same time.  Its hardness also means it is slippier than Nylon 6, ideal for low friction environments.

The natural sheet also has FDA rating meaning it is safe to use in certain areas of food production.

Data sheets are available via our Help and Advice Tab above.  

How is Nylon 6.6 Used
​Nylon 6.6 is used to manufacture low to medium stress components and can be considered as an alternative to metal.  Examples where nylon 6.6 is now used for mechanical parts that were previously cast in metal are machine screws and gears.

What are the differences between Nylon 6 and Nylon 6.6?
Nylon 6.6 has a 6% higher operating temperature, is 13% harder, 10% more rigid and has a tensile strength that is 8% greater. Nylon 6 on the other hand has a greater size range but the main difference is it can be around 30% cheaper
 
What is the operating temperatures of nylon 66?
100 degrees centigrade long term; 170 degrees centigrade short term. Long term typically means between 5,000 and 20,000 hours operating at this temperature without losing more than 50% of its performance. Short term typically means upto 2 hours at any one time.
