RS Pro Natural Nylon 66 Solid Plastic Sheets

From RS Pro a range of high-quality natural coloured Nylon 66 solid plastic sheets available in a range of sizes and thicknesses.

What are Solid Plastic Sheets?

Solid plastic sheets are sheets of strong durable plastic or plastic like materials which are cut to size and sold in a wide range of sizes and thickness. These hard plastic sheets, once purchased, can then be cut or machined into components for the fabrication of products for use in a wide range of industries. Different plastics have different properties which lend them for use in specific applications

What is Nylon 66?

Nylon 66 is also known as Polyamide 66 or PA 66 and is a semi-crystalline engineering plastic. This plastic is both hard and rigid with good abrasive and wear resistance along with low frictional properties. It also has good thermal dimensional stability which is the degree to which a material maintains its original dimensions when subjected to changes in temperature and humidity. This Nylon 66 plastic also features good slide and wear properties, components made from this solid plastic sheet slide very easily and don’t stick or lock up. This is an essential quality when this material is used in delicate or fine instruments where smooth operation is essential as well as in gears and bearings

Features and Benefits

• Good rigidity and hardness
• Good slide and low frictional properties
• Good abrasion and impact resistance
• Outstanding wear resistance
• Resistant to many chemicals, oils, greases and fuels
• Very good temperature resistance
• Good thermal dimensional stability
• Electrically insulating
• Weldable and bondable

Applications

Nylon 66 with its unique qualities, is used in a wide range of different industries. These industries include electronics, automotive, food, textiiles, agricultural and building, packaging and paper and aircraft and aerospace. Nylon 66 with its outstanding wear resistance and good slide and wear properties is ideal for use in a wide range of applications including the following;

• Gear wheels and Cam discs
• Friction strips and bearings
• Bushes and spindle nuts
• Piston guides
• Castors
• Impact plates and damping plates
• Conveyor screws
• Rope pulleys
• Plug parts

Questions and Answers

What tools can be used to cut this plastic sheet?
The choice of tools used to cut this plastic depend on the thickness of the sheet being cut. Thin sheets of plastic can be cut using a sharp utility knife. Thicker sheets can be cut using a range of different types of saw such as a fine toothed hand saw or hacksaw or an electric table saw, band saw, circular saw or jig saw. The teeth on the saw blade should be well sharpened and evenly spaced out with a uniform height and shape to avoid cracking or chipping the plastic. The friction caused by sawing can cause the blade to heat which can melt the plastic therefore using a ’no-melt’ blade is recommended. If using a regular blade, it is an idea to pause between cuts to allow the blade to cool.
