Nylon Parts

Nylon is available in rod, sheet and tube form from Pacific West Corporation. Nylon parts are a popular choice, as nylon is an extremely versatile engineering plastic and there are many different grades of Nylon designed to satisfy mechanical and chemical needs.

If you require a plastic with a combination of mechanical strength, stiffness, toughness, mechanical damping properties and wear resistance, nylon is the ideal choice.  The general grade – Nylon 6, has all of these properties and also has good electrical insulating ability and a high chemical resistance. This combination ensures Nylon 6 is the best engineering plastic for mechanical construction and maintenance.  Nylon 6 is available in black and natural (a white candle wax colour).  Pacific West Corp can supply all your nylon needs either in the raw product, or custom made machined nylon parts.
