Sealing with Nylon

Valves and seals made of nylon consistently outperform their rubber and metal counterparts. They last longer, can be pre-coloured (no painting) and can take the same amount of pressure (and then some) of components made of other materials. Due to its unique chemical composition, nylon is self-lubricating and won't dry out like rubber seals. Plus,…
