Nylon is a common thermoplastic resin typically used for injection molding applications. Nylon 6/6 is one of the most versatile engineering thermoplastics. It is strong, rigid, and has a very high melting point. Because of its excellent balance of strength, ductility and heat resistance, nylon 6/6 is an outstanding candidate for metal replacement applications. Nylon 6/6 is very easy to process and is popular in every major market using thermoplastic materials. Glass-reinforced nylons provide stiffness retention for automotive, appliance, construction, and computer components.
