Nylon ( Polyamide ) PA)
General-purpose Nylon has good toughness, strength, and resistance to creep, particularly in the high-temperature range. Nylon has excellent wear properties, It is waxy and offers low friction, and good chemical resistance. It is available in many forms including discs, bars, rods, sheets and rings.
Nylon is a hygroscopic (absorbs moisture) material. Prolonged exposure to moisture reduces the strength, stiffness, impact strength, and energy absorbing characteristics of nylon. Nylon is a translucent off-white color.

Nylatron® material from Cadillac Plastic (Troy, MI) is an alternative to metal gears.
The nylon material works better than metal in some applications because of the reduced friction and inertia linked with the bending of thermoplastic gear teeth. Impact, heat and abrasion resistant.
