Did you know that your doorstop could be considered a spacer? A spacer, or a shim, is a thin piece of material that can be used to fill small gaps or spaces between objects. They can be used to provide a level surface, to prevent wear and tear between objects, and to offer support. At Phoenix Specialty Manufacturing, we process a wide variety of custom-made spacers for original equipment manufacturers across America.
Our spacers are available in different materials, such as nylon, stainless steel, brass, copper, and more. Depending on the type of application they will be used for, nylon may be a great option to go with when it comes to choosing your spacers.
The Perks of Nylon
There are many benefits to using nylon spacers for your projects and designs. Nylon is a sturdy, resilient material that is resistant to abrasion and is also fire retardant. In fact, during WWII nylon was rationed in the United States because of its usefulness. Nylon was used in the production of parachutes, in favor of polyester, because of its extreme flexibility and durability.
In various industries, nylon spacers are commonly used in many applications. Since it is has great shock absorption, nylon spacers are used in snare drums to prohibit the transfer of vibrations from one part of the drum to the other. In vehicles, nylon spacers may be used instead of metal, since they are so lightweight. You wouldn’t think it would make a difference, but nylon can reduce the weight of a vehicle. Another perk is the fact that a nylon spacer offers excellent abrasion resistance. When you have a component with a protective coating, a nylon shim will not scratch or dent the polished surface.
