Which polymer is the best suited to your application?
Whatever you need, we have it: even if you are looking for the most unusual of properties.
Regular Nylons and Polyesters have a comparable continuous working temperature of 80 -100°C (176 – 212°F). Polypropylene (PP) and LDPE will withstand less.
Nylon has an excellent resistance to alkaline solutions (pH>7). Polyester has en excellent resistance to acids (pH<7). PP has a good resistance to all chemicals.
Wet or dry application?
The best suited polymers for wet applications are Polyester PBT, Nylon 6.10 and Nylon 6.12 due to their low moisture absorption. PP and LDPE absorb no moisture. Nylon 6 and 6.6 become softer and less effective, the longer they remain in contact with moisture.
