Gears, Bushes, Jigs and Fixtures

Nylon, also known as Polyamide (PA), is a versatile synthetic polymer that can be enhanced with various fillers such as oil, glass, or carbon to improve its mechanical properties. When these fillers are added, they impart specific characteristics to the nylon, making it suitable for a wide range of applications.

In the context of gears, bushes, jigs & fixtures, cams, seal rings, and pulleys, nylon filled with oil, glass, or carbon offers several advantages. Firstly, it enhances the material's strength, stiffness, and wear resistance, making it durable and capable of withstanding heavy loads and high speeds. This makes it ideal for components like gears and pulleys, where mechanical strength and wear resistance are crucial.

Additionally, nylon filled with these materials exhibits excellent dimensional stability and low friction characteristics, making it suitable for applications such as bushes, cams, and seal rings. These components often require precise machining and reliable performance over time, which nylon filled with fillers can provide.

Moreover, nylon filled with oil, glass, or carbon typically offers good chemical resistance and resilience to environmental factors like moisture and temperature variations. This makes it suitable for use in diverse industrial settings where exposure to harsh conditions is common.

Overall, the combination of nylon with oil, glass, or carbon fillers results in a versatile material that finds extensive use in various mechanical and industrial applications, providing durability, reliability, and performance.
