Nylon monofilaments are a great choice for many general-use monofilament applications, including:
- electrical cable filler cord
- hose and tube reinforcement
- string and line applications
- braided sleeving
- non-roll waistband and straps
Typical characteristics of nylon include:
- higher working temperatures
- good bend recovery
- abrasion resistance
General Use Nylon Grades
66 – This grade is ideal for applications that require high working temperatures. 66 nylon monofilament is very strong and has excellent shape retention qualities, which makes it suitable for narrow fabrics and textiles.
6 – Type 6 nylon offers less stiffness, a 65 °F lower melting point, and higher moisture absorption than 66 grades. This general purpose nylon works well for a variety of applications including cable filler, and netting. Various grades of type 6 are available if additional softness and flexibility are required.
