Thermoplastic Nylon

AkzoNobel thermoplastic nylons (Interpon TP) offer excellent abrasion, wear, and chemical resistance compared to standard polyester coatings. These tough, resilient coatings provide a durable option for smooth, low-friction surfaces, with exceptional solvent and chemical resistance, and good machinability.

The attractive smooth finish and exceptional resistance properties of nylon-based coatings allow for a wide range of applications, including those requiring high hygienic standards.

Typical Applications for Thermoplastic Nylon

  • Marine hardware
  • Shopping carts
  • Office & institutional furniture
  •  Industrial pipe & fittings
  •  Automovite clips & wear surfaces
  •  Food processing & handling equipment
