Flexible applications with nylon

Nylon is one of the most common plastics used in fabrication, being uncomplicated and inexpensive to work with. Nylon is also highly durable and can withstand high operating temperatures, making it a material of choice for sporting equipment, seatbelt restraints and other products which need to be flexible yet withstand impact.

Flex Bows

Nylon’s properties are perhaps best showcased in the form of flex bows. Flex bows are typically made from Blue Nylon 66 extruded rod, often thought to be of higher quality than Green Nylon, and being 36mm diameter x 2400mm long. Flex bows gained popularity in the United States and are now being used by more and more transport, logistics and construction companies in Australia, as they are an ideal way of keeping tarps on trucks securely fastened and stopping spillage.

Some of the key benefits of flex bows include:

  • Durability – will bend and retain shape if hit
  • Permanent installation – trucks can load and unload without having to remove flex bows
  • Increased driver safety – drivers do not have to climb up to trailers, or remove and replace at each stop
  • Longevity – outlasts steel and aluminium bows
  • No need to fix worn trailer sockets
  • No need to pay a professional to straighten bent bows
