Nylon’s toughness, low coefficient of friction and good abrasion resistance make it an ideal replacement for a wide variety of materials from metal to rubber.
NYLATRON® GS/GSM/NSM is a high strength & high-quality Nylon fibre that comes in many forms and colors. Nylatron® is used to cast plastic parts for machines because of its mechanical properties and superior wear resistance. It is an ideal material for bearings and wear pads.
NYLON 6 is the most common commercial grade of nylon. Nylon 6 is tough; possessing high tensile strength. It has the ability to reduce noise, use less lubrication ad increase gear life.
Nylon 6/6 is used for high load applications where a lower coefficient of friction is needed. Its advantages are its strength, stiffness, heat resistance, chemical resistance to hydrocarbons, wear resistance and lubricity. It has a higher temperature, better tensile strength, more rigid and harder than commercial grade nylon. It comes in sheets, rods and is machinable to various sizes.
