Application: Dot Matrix printer wheel
Requirements: Mechanical strength
Dimensional stability
Good wear resistance against lubricated Polycarbonate
Good chemical resistance
Recommendation: PLASCO TNF 603
Nylon 6/6 + 30% Glass Fibers + 15% PTFE
Solution: Nylon 6/6 is a crystalline resin, which offers improved mechanical strength with the addition of glass fibers.

The glass fibers also improve the dimensional stability of the application.

The addition of both glass and PTFE dramatically lowers the wear and abrasion associated with paper tracking and contact with Polycarbonate.

Being crystalline, Nylon offers a good chemical resistance to printer inks and typical cleaning fluids used on printers.
