Nylon & Acetal Shapes
Flame-Resistant, Lightweight Extruded Nylon
6 FR, a lightweight,
nylon, to their
product line-up. Sustamid 6 FR sheets and rods have a
very high LOI (Limiting Oxygen Index) of 40% and are
halogen-free. This high-strength, rigid nylon is best used in
applications with high demands for both flame and wear
resistance like cable clamps and wear guides for the aerospace,
rail car, shipbuilding and mining industries. The
new material meets specifications for rail and aerospace,
including but not limited to, NFPA130 and the new
European Rail Vehicle Standard DIN EN 45545-2:2013.
This newly developed material facilitates production of
large-sized machined components and component parts in
small piece numbers. Machined parts made of flame-retardant
polyamide 6 could previously only be manufactured by
injection moulding due to technical limitations. This meant
that large dimensions and small piece numbers could not be
economically produced due to the high tool costs.
Sustamid 6 FR is just the latest innovative product
added the full line-up of the Röchling Acetal and nylon
material offering that includes Sustarin® C (Acetal copolymer),
Sustarin® H (Acetal homopolymer/Delrin®),
Sustarin® H AF and AF DE588 (Acetal homopolymer AF
blends), Sustamid® 6G (cast nylon) and Sustamid® 66
(extruded nylon). Röchling high-performance acetal and
nylon products have excellent mechanical and electrical
properties with the ability to maintain their physical
integrity under thermal and electrical stressors at elevated

Acetal offers high
strength and a resistance to impact and fatigue with a low
coefficient of friction and good wear properties especially
in wet environments.
Their full line manufacturing capabilities allow for the
production of all your stock shape needs as well as semifinished
and finished custom cast components for
increased savings and quick turnarounds.
Nylatech advantages include: custom orders manufactured
in one week or less; same day shipping for in-stock
items and short pours and flexible manufacturing for
unique non-stock requirements.
Nylatech acetal offers low moisture absorption, high
strength and stiffness, easy machining capabilities and is
FDA & NSF compliant.
The material comes in natural and black in rod ." dia.
to 6" dia. from stock and plate ." through 2" in 4 x 10'
and 2." through 4" in 2 x 4'. Custom sizes are available
to improve part yield and reduce material cost.
Nylatech are specialists in manufacturing cast nylon 6
and 6/12 as rod, sheet and tubular bar as well as finished
or semi-finished custom cast components. Available in a
variety of grades including Nylatech® Oil, PVM, SL and
Nythane™, these materials offer a range of properties
from self-lubricating with a low coefficient of friction to
increased impact resistance.

High Tensile Strength,

DuPont Delrin stock
shapes made by
Ensinger because of their increased physical properties,
which can be as much as 20% higher than other acetals.
Ensinger uses a proprietary extrusion process that produces
shapes with lower stress and better dimensional stability
that leads to consistent and reliable mechanical parts.
Delrin stock shapes exhibit low moisture adsorption and
are chemically resistant to hydrocarbons, solvents, and neutral
While these properties are impressive, it is the material’s
significantly better fatigue endurance that makes
Ensinger Delrin much more ideal for most industrial
applications than its acetal copolymer counterparts. It is
a popular choice for manufactured plastic gears. As automotive
engineers look to reduce weight, improve energy
efficiency and fuel economy, as well as lower noise output,
Delrin has become increasingly popular. Its higher
strength characteristics and better fatigue endurance
make it an excellent choice to replace metal gears while
maintaining or improving long term performance. Other
popular applications include auto safety system components;
conveyor parts, such as bushings and bearing
housings; fasteners and clips; fuel system components;
and home appliance parts.
