Nylon, a polyimide resin, is a light yet tough thermoplastic material. Its density is approximately . 041 lb./cu.in. It is a tough, resilient material with a low coefficient of frictionabrasion tests show that Nylon loses less material than do many metals, other plastics, and hard rubber. It can deform under load, then return to its original shape. Nylon retains its impact strength over a wide range of temperatures (-60° to 400°F). It has good resistance to most chemicals. It can be easily machined on most standard metal working machines, power hacksaws, band saws, or circular saws. It is desirable to use a saw with a coarse tooth blade.
