Extruded Nylon Aramide


What is the Material: Extruded Nylon Aramid Fiber is a semi-crystalline material filled with aramid fibers (Kevlar).

Key Material Features: This material is beneficial in applications requiring higher strength, rigidity, and dimensional stability, while maintaining the properties of other nylon materials including the useful mechanical properties, low friction, wear resistance, and abrasion resistance.

Other Considerations: Like the glass filled nylon, the aramid filler enhances the structural characteristics of the nylon, but this material is non-abrasive compared to glass filled nylon. Extruded nylons absorb less moisture and have a melting point about 70°F higher than cast nylon.
