Strong, stiff engineering plastic often used to replace metal bearings and bushings.

Nylon bushings are injection molded or cast, hence the term molded bushings.Nylon is a strong, stiff engineering plastic with outstanding bearing and wear properties. Nylon is frequently used to replace metal bearings and bushings often eliminating the need for external lubrication. Other benefits include a reduction in part weight, less operating noise, and decreased wear on mating parts.


Nylon Plastic Benefits

There are many benefits of nylon, no matter what type of product you are making.

Nylon is durable

One of nylon’s main benefits is its strength and durability. Nylon plastic is a very sturdy material. It also has very high wear and abrasion resistance. 

Nylon is lightweight

Because nylon is a plastic, it’s very lightweight to produce. 

Nylon is waterproof

Unlike many other materials, nylon forces moisture to the surface where it can evaporate. Because it doesn’t retain or absorb moisture, it’s less likely to grow mold or other fungi, saving you on cleaning costs and time.

Nylon is easy to wash

Because nylon is waterproof, it’s very easy to care for and wash. Nylon fabric resists shrinkage and wrinkles and is pleat retentive. 

Nylon variations

The two most common available in sheet, rod, and tube are Nylon 6 and Nylon 6/6

1. Nylon 6

Nylon 6 is usually made into rod, tube and sheet formats using a liquid casting process. It also offers greater flexibility, as near net or irregular moulds can be created to make custom items. 

2. Nylon 6/6

Nylon 6 and Nylon 6/6 have very similar mechanical, thermal and electrical properties.
Nylon 6/6 is made by melting solid pellets of the polymer and processing them through a thermoplastic extruder. Extrusion is a fast and economical method for making a small diameter rod, tube and thin sheet.

3. Nylon with Metal Core

Nylon with metal core, referred to as Nylon billets, can be produced into many different machinery components including rollers, gears, sprockets and augers.

4. Graded Nylon

Nylon can be made in a number of speciality formulas. Molybdenum disulphide-filled (MOS2) and oil-filled nylons have the benefit of enhanced wear properties, often eliminating the need for external lubrication. Heat stabilised nylon withstands higher operating temperature and can be made available in glass-filled grades for enhanced strength. 

Nylon Bushings:

1. Nylon Bushings: Surface Properties 

Nylon bushings are self-lubricating, which means they do not require additional lubrication.  They also have an extremely low coefficient of friction.  


2. Nylon Bushings: Strength and Performance 

The PV rating of non-reinforced Nylon bushings is 3000 ft/min/psi. In addition, they are extremely lightweight compared to their metal counterparts.

3. Nylon Bushings: Environmental Properties

The continuous operating temperature of molded nylon bearings is around 250°F. They are not well adapted to cryogenic temperatures. 

4. Nylon Bushings: Chemical Compatibility

Nylon offers good chemical resistance against weak acids and alkalis, organic solvents, and most fuels.  


applications of nylon

With the many benefits of nylon, it’s no surprise that its uses are numerous. Nylon fabric and nylon plastic can be found across the agriculture, sporting, automobile, construction and food production industries, among many others.
