Benefits of Nylon Coating

8/30/2016

As you know, Texas Dip Molding & Coating Inc. is capable of creating dip molding and coating solutions for all kinds of products using a wide variety of materials based on the application. Among those materials is nylon, and it is a very popular coating choice for many of our clients. There are many benefits to coating a metal product in nylon, and these include:

  • Reduced heat conductivity
  • Chemical resistance
  • Fluid resistance
  • Impact resistance
  • Hygienic surface

Many companies choose to coat their metal products with nylon because the even, glossy finish adds a special touch while still providing all of the practical benefits listed above. A further benefit of nylon is that it is a more environmentally friendly material; a characteristic that many industries are becoming more and more sensitive too.

Nylon coating can be used for many applications, including: medical instruments, scientific equipment and industrial parts. It is not at all uncommon to find nylon coating in the medical field because any metal implements coated with nylon can be easily sterilized between uses and avoid damage from an impact when accidentally dropped. In the automotive industry, nylon coating is sometimes used to protect the exterior of brake lines and fuels lines from degradation that could pose a safety threat to the vehicle’s passengers.

With our extensive expertise and state-of-the-art equipment in our manufacturing facility, we are about to create dip molds and complete coats of nylon by formulating reliable nylon compounds.
