The Benefits of Black NylonRetaining Washers #2

Automotive applications benefit from black nylon washers on many different levels. First of all, these products weigh much less than their metal counterparts. This can contribute to a serious reduction in overall vehicle weight, particularly in heavy engine blocks and mechanical pieces.

Less weight increases fuel efficiency; studies have found that a 10% reduction in weight can translate into a 5-7% improvement in vehicle fuel efficiency. Reduced weight also increases the overall lifetime of vehicles and decreases emissions, helping to contribute to lower environmental costs and promoting sustainability.

The chemical-resistant properties of black nylon prevent washers from weakening or corroding while being in contact with petroleum and oil-based chemicals. These washers offer excellent overall durability against pressure, wear, and tear.

Nylon is also very versatile, allowing for unparalleled workability, flexibility, and design freedom to manufacture whatever shape is needed for any specific automotive application. The overall result of using these products is maximized quality and cost efficiency, with durable nylon that maintains its rigidity in virtually any automotive application–and at significantly lower costs than metal washers.
