Nylon 6 Sheet - Metal Detectable

Nylon 6 Sheet - Metal Detectable

Food Approved Product Metal Detectable Product 


Nylon 6 sheet - metal detectable is a common engineering plastic due to its ease of machinability. It combines high strength, stiffness and hardness properties with good creep and wear resistance. It contains very fine material additives making it detectable to most metal detector and x-ray equipment. It also has lower moisture absorption than standard nylon 6.

Temperature: -25°C to +85°C (+165°C short term).

Key Features: High wear and fatigue resistance. Metal and x-ray detection possible with visual detection easy due to blue colour.

Applications: Rollers, gears, thrust washers, seals and many other components for use within the food, drink and pharmaceutical industry.


Also available: Nylon 6 Rod - Metal Detectable.
