The most commonly used wheel in the food industry is the polyamide wheel. Polyamides are plastic polymers. Polyamides are made of fibers called nylon, so the commonly used name for polyamides is nylon. The most important properties of polyamides are: high elasticity, low thermal expansion, high stiffness and mechanical strength, high impact resistance also at low temperatures, good sliding properties, abrasion resistance, UV resistance, low factor of friction. It is also characterized by low resistance to grease, fats, gas. It is easy to work out with a cut. The temperature range that can be used is -30 / + 80 ° C.
