Plastic Material Data

ACETAL

ACETAL is a crystalline thermoplastic polymer material. Acetal characteristically has excellent tensile strength, stiffness, surface hardness and chemical resistance. Acetal has excellent flexural memory and property retention when subjected to repeated loading. The normal short-term use temperature range is -40˚F to +270˚F (-40˚ to + 132˚C). Acetal is recommended for high performance applications. Physical properties remain consistent across a wide range of temperature, relative humidity, and weather conditions.

SUPERTOUGH NYLON

SUPERTOUGH NYLON is an impact modified crystalline thermoplastic polyamide resin. The defining Supertough Nylon characteristic is superior resistance to repeated impact loads. This material maintains good tensile strength, chemical resistance, stiffness and flexural memory. Nylon is excellent in high temperature applications. The normal short-term use temperature range is -40˚F to +390˚F (-40˚C to +199˚C). Nylon is, however, a hygroscopic resin. Therefore, physical properties will vary as the relative humidity changes. When dry, tensile strength is higher and impact is lower. When wet, tensile strength is low and impact strength is very high. Superthough is recommended for specific products or applications where extreme impact resistance is needed.

NEXLON

NEXLON is an impact modified crystalline thermoplastic polyamide resin. As with Supertough Nylon, the defining characteristic is resistance to repeated impact loads. This material maintains good tensile strength, chemical resistance, stiffness and flexural memory. Nylon is excellent in high temperature applications. The normal short-term use temperature range is -40˚F to +390˚F (-40˚C to +199˚C). Nylon is however, a hygroscopic resin. Therefore, physical propertoes wo;; varu as the relative humidity changes. When dry, tensile strength is higher and impact is lower. When wet, tensile strength is low and impact strength is very high. Although Nexlon has impact resistance, it is lower than Supertough Nylon. Nexlon is recommended for specific products or applications that experience some impact, but not extreme impact, which is better suited for Supertough Nylon.

NYLON 6/6

NYLON 6/6 is a thermoplastic polyamide resin. This material maintains good tensile strength, chemical resistance, stiffness and flexural memory. Nylon is excellent in high temperature applications. The normal short-term use temperature range is -40˚F to +390˚F (-40˚C to +199˚C). Nylon is however, a hygroscopic resin, therefore, physical properties will vary as the relative humidity changes. When dry, tensile strength is higher and impact is lower. When wet, tensile strength is lower and impact strength is higher.

ELASTOMERIC RESIN

ELASTOMERIC RESIN is a thermoplastic material. It is a flexible plastic that bridges the gap between rubbery elastomers and rigid plastics. In general, it exhibits good low temperature flexibility, good toughness, chemical resistance and excellent abrasion resistance. Normal short-term use temperature range is 0˚F to +293˚F (-18˚C to +145˚C). Material properties will change drastically outside of this range. This temperature range is material-based and individual parts may perform differently.
