New Nylon Welding Rods Available
Polyvance is announcing the availability of two new welding rods -- black nylon and 15% glass-reinforced nylon. We recently refurbished a machine the dries hydrophilic resins like nylon, allowing us to extrude the welding rods with proper moisture levels for optimum quality. This enables us to expand our range of nylon (polyamide) rods.
Now available are the following resins and profiles:
R06-01-XX-BK Nylon, 1/8" round, black
R06-04-XX-BK Nylon, 3/8" ribbon, black
R21-04-XX-BK Nylon + 15% glass fiber reinforcement, 3/8" ribbon, black
Most automotive nylons are molded in black, so the black rod will allow for easier cosmetic restoration of the welded parts without the need for paint. Glass-reinforced nylons are often used underhood, with radiator tanks, intercooler tanks, radiator supports, and intake manifolds being common examples. R21 ribbon will blend better with these plastics and improve the integrity of the repair.
Polyvance has been the leader in plastic welding technology since 1981 and is focused on making it easier for our customers to perform quality plastic repairs on virtually any automotive plastic. We already had the largest variety of welding rods available in the world... now we are expanding our lead with these new nylon rods!
