Nylon Machining

Nationwide Plastics is ready to manufacture and machine your Nylon products. As the experts in nylon machining and rotational molding, we can advise you which type of Nylon would best suit your application whether Nylon 6, Nylon 11, Nylon 12, Zytel ST or others. Although Nylon can be readily machined it still requires experience and adaption as compared to metal machining.

Nylon can be machined in the followed processes:

  • Sawing (Circular and Band)
  • Turning and Threading
  • Milling
  • Drilling and Reaming
  • Cutting

Nylon will slowly absorb moisture, which can cause it to expand. Depending on the type of Nylon, to develop proper tolerances the dryness or humidity of your location may need to be considered.

Nylon is available in a variety of fills and basic shapes including sheet, rod, film and tubes to meet just about every need. Nationwide Plastics manufactures nylon tubes, nylon sheets, strips and more in a variety of sizes and thicknesses. We manufacture quantities from small batches to full production runs.
