Nylon 6 is arguably the most popular nylon plastic used throughout Europe thanks to its reliability and excellent fatigue resistance. A widely used engineering thermoplastic, it is suitable for use in a number of environments where it may come into contact with chemicals or be subject to repeated wear.

Remarkably tough, Nylon 6 is a very stiff material and displays excellent wear and surface abrasion resistance. As a cast material it is often used to create gears and other moving mechanical components, which gives an indication of the reliability and surface hardness of this plastic. However its toughness goes beneath the surface, and the wide use of Nylon 6 is thanks to its inherent ability to resist fatigue either through machining or through exposure to fluctuating temperatures. This makes it a very versatile material, and it can be machined through automated machines or manual methods of fabrication.

For a huge variety of commercial applications, Nylon 6 rods display the mechanical strength, wear resistance and stiffness needed in a reliable cut plastic material. Our Nylon 6 rods are available in natural and black finish, and cut to your desired dimensions.
