Tecamid 66 - Extruded Nylon 66

Nylon was the first engineering resin. It has been used in applications ranging from electronic, marine, and automotive industries to fibers used to make carpet. Nylon has outstanding wear resistance and low frictional properties. It has very good temperature, chemical, and impact properties. However, nylon's one weakness is a propensity to absorb moisture and thus have poor dimensional stability.

Tecamid MDS - Molybdenum Disulfide Filled (MDS)

Nylon is one of the most widely used and versatile thermoplastic resins. Its combination of physical properties versus its price makes it a favorite choice for numerous applications. Nylon has a consistent history of replacing other materials including: metal, brass, bronze, aluminum, and rubber. In replacing metal gears in machinery, nylon can be advantageous because of its ability to reduce noise, use less lubrication and increase gear life. TECAMID™MDS is an extruded "moly" filled nylon 6/6, which is gray in color. The addition of particles of molybdenum disulfide enhances the surface lubricity and wear resistance over unfilled nylon. In applications requiring high lubricity, this material may be a good candidate. In addition to the greater lubricity there are many additional property enhancementsthat occur.
