Nylon is a go-to material choice for mechanical components that will experience wear and friction. It can even be used as a metal replacement in some instances.

We offer multiple nylons through our CNC machining service:

  • Nylon 6 Light Blue
  • Nylon 6/6
  • Nylon 6/6 30% Glass Filled Natural
  • Nylon 6 Black
