Nylon 66 sheet is a tough, highly machinable engineering plastic with good chemical and wears resistance. It has high mechanical damping to help dissipate vibration energy and good electrical insulation properties. Nylon 66 is widely used in industrial applications and is commonly manufactured into scrapers, friction bearings, gear wheels, and wear strips.
Compared to standard grades of nylon 6, nylon 66 has higher mechanical strength, stiffness, lower moisture absorption, and better resistance to acids, creep, temperature, and wear. However, Nylon 6 has a higher impact strength.
Petron Thermoplast provides a variety of nylon 66 grades to meet your needs. Natural nylon 66, commonly used in food and pharmaceutical processing operations and complies with FDA food contact regulations, is available from us. If specific properties are required, glass filled and flame retardant grades are also available.
If finished products are required, we can also supply nylon 66 rods in various grades and provide a plastic machining service using advanced CNC technology.
Available Grades of Nylon 66
Nylon 66 Sheet
Offering improved mechanical strength, stiffness and resistance to wear and heat than standard grades of nylon 6. Nylon 66 is commonly manufactured into wear strips, conveyor screws, damping plates or electrically insulating components. Natural nylon 66 is also FDA approved and is a popular option in food processing applications. Temperature range -30°C up to +95°C (+170°C short term).
Nylon 66 Sheet – Glass Filled
Providing enhanced mechanical properties and resistance to temperatures in comparison to standard grades of nylon 66. Glass filled nylon 66 offers good dimensional accuracy and resistance to heat distortion. It is often manufactured into gears or components. Glass filled nylon 66 is not suitable for food contact applications. Temperature range -40°C up to +110°C (+170°C short term).
Nylon 66 Sheet – Flame Retardant
Offering similar mechanical properties to standard grades of nylon 66. Flame retardant nylon 66 has a class UL94 V-0 flammability rating and conforms to EN 45545-2 for use as a fire protection material on railway vehicles. It is commonly machined into cable holders, clamps and channels for use in transport applications. Temperature range -30°C up to +80°C (+170°C short term).
