Nylon is a tough material, with good overall mechanical properties. The material is resistant to oils and grease. Nylon has good wear properties and is very abrasion resistant. The material is available in a large range of sizes, and modified grades, including self lubricating options, and glass filled. Nylon can be bonded. The material features good electrical insulation, however these properties are affected by water absorption. Water absorption can be an issue, leading to swell.
