Nylon (PA)

Nylon's key properties include outstanding wear and abrasion resistance, along with good impact, chemical, and temperature resistance. It is available in a large number of extruded and cast grades.

  • Nylon 101
    Polyamide 66 (PA66) • Extruded Grade •Natural Color
    Of all the unmodified nylons, Nylon 101 is the strongest, most rigid and has one of the highest melting points. It is commonly specified for screw machined electrical insulators and food contact parts. Other colors are available on a custom basis. Nylon 101 is FDA, USDA, NSF, and 3A-Dairy compliant. See also Nylon 101 Black.

  • Nylatron GS
    Polyamide 66 (PA66) • Extruded Grade •Natural Color
    Molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) filled nylon offering improved strength and rigidity. With a lower coefficient of linear thermal expansion than Nylon 101, Nylatron GS parts maintain better fit and clearances, and have less tendency to seize as bearings.

  • Nylatron GSM
    Polyamide 6 (PA6) • Cast Grade •Natural Color
    Nylatron GSM PA6 contains finely divided particles of molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) to enhance its load bearing capabilities while maintaining the impact resistance inherent to nylon. It is the most commonly used grade for gears, sheaves, sprockets and custom parts. It is grey-black in color.

  • Nylatron GSM Blue
    Polyamide 6 (PA6) • Cast Grade •Blue Color
    The first cast nylon to combine both molybdenum disulphid (MoS) and oil for the load capacity of Nylatron GSM PA6, plus improved frictional characteristics. It excels in higher pressures, and at low speeds-up to 40 fpm. It offers 20% lower coefficient of friction, 50% greater limiting PV, and a lower "k" factor than Nylatron GSM PA6, making it ideal for slide pads, thrust washers and trunion bearings. Nylatron GSM Blue PA6 should be considered for any oil-filled nylon application. It is dark blue in color.

  • Nylatron NSM
    Polyamide 6 (PA6) • Cast Grade •Natural Color
    Developed specifically for demanding applications, Nylatron NSM outperforms all other "premium" wear grade materials by far. Ideal for bearings and wear pads, Nylatron NSM offers advantages beyond superior wear resistance at an affordable price. It provides weight and noise reduction, corrosion resistance, and easy machining. With less downtime and reduced maintenance, save time and money by realizing the increased performance and productivity of this self-lubricating nylon.

  • Nylatron MC901
    Polyamide 6 (PA6) • Cast Grade •Blue Color
    Heat stabilized nylon offering long-term thermal stability to 260 degrees Fahrenheit. It is blue in color and used in a variety of bearing and structural applications such as wheels, gears, and custom parts.

  • Nylatron MC907
    Polyamide 6 (PA6) • Cast Grade •Natural Color
    Unmodified type 6 nylon offering the highest strength and hardness of the nylon 6 grades. MC 907 natural is FDA, USDA and 3A-Dairy compliant. It is off-white and primarily used for food contact parts.

  • Nylatron GF30
    Polyamide 66 (PA66) • Extruded Grade •Natural Color
    For applications requiring higher compressive strength and rigidity, 30% glass reinforced Nylon 6/6 is also available. It is stocked in diameters ranging from 10mm to 150mm (or .394" to 5.910" in meter lengths).

  • Nylatron LIG
    Polyamide 6 (PA6) • Cast Grade •Natural Color
    Nylatron LIG combines the toughness of cast PA6 with an oil-based lubricant that is encapsulated within the nylon matrix. It increases the load beariang performance of the material when compared to unfilled nylons and reduces the coefficient of friction. It is an ideal material for industrial application.

  • Nylatron 703XL
    Polyamide 6 (PA6) • Cast Grade •Natural Color
    This ultra-high performance bearing grade of PA6 provides wear resistance near the levels of Nylatron NSM PA6 with superior load bearing capability and an industry first - a near zero level of "stick-slip." This elimination of chatter provides an extraordinary amount of control for high precision applications.
