DOES CORE STRENGTH MATTER?

DOES CORE STRENGTH MATTER?

THE STRENGTH OF NYLON

Contaminated oil can lead to engine erosion and failure. So, finding a filter that is strong to the core becomes imperative to prevent potential problems. That is why ACDelco GM OE Oil Filters utilize glass-filled nylon for higher strength and greater flow. Used in parachute canopies and suspension lines, nylon is far less likely to rip, tear, or shred than canvas or silk.

Because of its polymer-based construction, parachute nylon has the tensile strength of up to 12,000 psi.
