Nitrile Nylon is made from a base of nylon with a polymer coating of Nitrile rubber. The nylon provides flexibility, while the Nitrile coating has superb resistance to oil, fuel and other chemicals.
Nylon was originally used as a silk substitute for parachutes in World War Two but has since then been used for a variety of applications. However, Nylon fibres used for more industrial purposes too, such as rope, suspension lines and harness straps.
Because of its oil resistant properties, Nitrile rubber is often used in the production of print rollers, fuel hoses and gaskets. The more Nitrile present in the polymer, the more oil resilient it becomes. Nitrile is also used in laboratories for disposable examination gloves as it is resistant to many aggressive chemicals.
So therefore, the two main materials used in Nitrile Nylon diaphragms combine to produce diaphragms with superb chemical resistance and pliability. These properties make the diaphragms very useful in a variety of industries, from textiles to automotive. TYM is one of the first stockists of Nitrile Nylon diaphragms in Europe and we hope that they become as in demand as they are in other parts of the world.
