Nylon and Polypropylene
Use for high structural or physical strength
Use for temperature from below 0° F to 200° F
Use Teflon tape
Use with acid-based fertilizers
Use with xylene-based chemicals
Use in situations with extreme exposure to ultraviolet radiation
Physical Properties of Nylon
Specific Gravity 1.12
Heat Distortion 375° F
Rockwell Hardness (R) 120
Izod Impact 1.0 ft. – lbs./in
Our nylon fittings are made from high quality type 6 virgin resin. Nylon fittings are generally acceptable for
use at working pressures up to 150 PSI at normal room temperatures. At very low pressures, temperatures can approach 175° F with no degradation.
Nylon is resistant to a broad range of chemicals including most agricultural chemicals, ammonium compounds, detergents, diesel fuel, ethanol, gasoline, hexane, magnesium sulphate, most sodium compounds, trichloroethylene and zinc sulphate.
Nylon fittings should not be used with acid-based fertilizers, bromine, chlorine, fluorine, hydrochloric acid, iodine, nitric acid, phosphoric acid, sulfuric acid and xylene.
Use at normal ag sprayer spring and summer field conditions
Use for acid resistance
Use for UV resistance, prolonged exposure to sunlight
Use for cosmetic appearance
Use impact wrenches
Use at very hot temperature over 150° F
Use at very cold temperature under 32° F
Use Teflon tape or Teflon sealants
Use with toluene or xylene based chemicals
Physical Properties of Polypropylene
Specific Gravity 0.98
Heat Distortion 285° F
Rockwell Hardness (R) 100
Izod Impact 0.8 ft. – lbs./in
Our polypropylene fittings are made 10% glass polypropylene resin. Polypropylene fittings are generally acceptable for use at working pressures up to 150 PSI at ambient temperatures. As with all thermoplastics, an increase in working temperature is accompanied by a decrease in operating pressure.
Polypropylene is resistant to a broad range of chemicals including most agricultural chemicals, acid based fertilizers, ammonium compounds, calcium carbonate, ethanol, hydrochloric acid, magnesium sulfate, oxalic acid, proprionic acid, phosphoric acid and sodium compounds.
Polypropylene fittings should not be used with aromatic hydrocarbons, carbon tetrachloride, gasoline, hexane, kerosene, nitric acid, sodium hypochlorite, toluene trichloroethylene and xylene.
