Nylon 12 Rod is a transparent polyamide with high tensile strength, moderate mechanical characteristics, and excellent chemical resistance. It has a robust, hard surface, is UV resistant, and has a flammability grade of UL 94 H-B. Nylon 12 is an excellent electrical insulator, has a strong resistance to stress cracking, and is abrasion and corrosion-resistant.
Nylon 12 outperforms other technical polyamides in terms of chemical resistance and moisture absorption when compared to extruded grades of nylon 6 and 66. Nylon 12 is distinguished from other polyamides by its transparency, and it is frequently employed in applications requiring optical clarity. Nylon 12 is less strong and has a lower melting point than other engineering nylons. It’s also worth mentioning that, with the exception of chemical resistance, typical grades of cast nylon 6 will surpass nylon 12 in every way.
Commonly machined into sliding rails, impact plates, gear wheels, pump parts and wear components.
- Good resistance to chemicals, oils, and cleaning fluids.
- Temperature: Up to +80°C.
- High resistance to stress cracking.
- Lower moisture absorption than extruded nylon 6 and 66.
- Highly machinable.
- Good impact strength.
- UV resistant.
Offers a class UL 94 H-B flammability rating.
