The material advantages of nylon chair base
Nylon, commonly referred to as “PA” (PA 6 or PA 66), is usually available in black, white, or its natural color (off-white or beige). It is probably one of the most common variants used in engineering applications. Because it can be extruded, nylon is ideal for plastic injection molding and 3D printing. And it can said to be an ideal replacement for metals in high temperature applications thanks to its high melting point.
The bearing capacity of nylon chair base
A high quality nylon base can usually safely handle at least 250 lbs. A professional nylon chair base manufacturers can control the material input to meet your requirements for the bearing capacity of the gaming chair, like adjusting the ratio of new materials, recycled materials and glass fiber in the nylon raw materials. What’s more, they will make sure the loading capacity is in line with the requirement through the the BIFMA static pressure test or punch test.
The followings are the comparisons between the nylon chair base and the other 2 types of chair base including the aluminium base and the chrome base.

Nylon base vs Chrome base
Maybe you think that the material cost of the Chrome Base is not really high, and it is also a good choice for a mid-end gaming chair. This thought may sound quite right but it does not quite meet the market demand for the following reasons:
- The shapes of the chrome bases are mainly of round tubes, square tubes or bent iron plates.
- While their styles are mostly traditional and decent, which is the exact opposite of the avant-garde style of NYLON BASE with multiple colors.
- Besides, the appearance of chrome bases can not quite satisfy the aesthetics of gaming chair users. They are also not very compatible with UPHOLSTERED SEAT.
