Gaming chairs are one of our indispensable daily utensils, and now the gaming chair market is also varied. Buying a good gaming chair can also improve our daily happiness, after all we spend a lot of time sitting at home. But now many consumers don’t know what is the difference between nylon heels and steel feet for gaming chairs and what are their respective advantages and disadvantages? Then let’s find out together!
The advantages of nylon:
1.High mechanical strength, good toughness, high tensile and compressive strength. Nylon’s tensile strength is higher than that of metal, and its compressive strength is comparable to that of metal, but it is not as rigid as metal. The tensile strength is close to the yield strength, more than double that of ABS. The ability to absorb shock and pressure vibration is strong, and the impact strength is much higher than that of ordinary plastics, and is better than that of acetal resin.
2.The fatigue resistance is outstanding, and the parts can still maintain the original mechanical strength after repeated twists and turns. Common escalator handrails, new bicycle plastic rims, and occasions where periodic fatigue is extremely obvious are often used in PA.
3.High softening point and heat resistance. Such as nylon 46, etc., the heat distortion temperature of high crystalline nylon is high, and it can be used for a long time at 150 degrees. After PA66 is reinforced by glass fiber, its thermal deformation temperature reaches more than 250 degrees.
4.The surface is smooth, the friction coefficient is small, and it is wear-resistant. It has self-lubrication and low noise when used as a moving mechanical component, and can be used without lubricant when the friction effect is not too high. If you really need a lubricant to reduce friction or help dissipate heat, water, oil, grease, etc. are all options. Therefore, as a transmission component, its service life is long.
5.Corrosion resistance. Nylon is very resistant to alkalis and most salt solutions, but not strong acids and oxidizing agents. Nylon can resist the erosion of gasoline, oil, fat, alcohol, weak alkali, etc. and has good anti-aging ability. It can be used as packaging material for lubricating oil, fuel, etc.
The disadvantages of nylon:
The disadvantage is that the service life is relatively short, the wear is fast, and the appearance grade is not high, and additional decoration is required.
The advantages of steel:
1.High strength, good plasticity, heat resistance and toughness.
2.The material is uniform and the work reliability is high.
3.The steel structure is easy to manufacture, has a short construction period, and has good assembly properties.
4.Steel can be welded.
5.The steel is non-leakable, making it easy to make a closed structure.
6.Steel is closer to a homogeneous and isotropic body.
The disadvantages of steel:
The disadvantage is that the quality is too heavy and it is inconvenient to carry.
The second is because of the existence of welding feet, there is a risk of fracture if the quality is poor, and it will rust after a long time.
