Natural Nylon 6 Sheet - Extruded


Extruded Nylon 6 offers strength, stiffness and good mechanical properties whilst offering good electrical insulation and chemical resistance at a wide operating temperature range (-40°C to +70°C). Nylon 6 is regarded as a general purpose material and is food compliant.

Extruded Nylon 6 Sheet is made by forcing the material through a die. The benefit of this that extruded nylon 6 sheets more accurate in terms of thickness than Cast Nylon 6. The downside is that Extruded Nylon 6 can have more internal stress.  Our plastic engineers advise that it is a little more difficult to machine than Cast Nylon 6 and can melt more easily while machining.

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 6?
100 degrees centigrade long term; 160 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.
