Subcategory: Filled/Reinforced Thermoplastic; Nylon; Nylon 6; Polymer; Thermoplastic

Key Words: Polyamide 6; PA6; PA 6

Material Notes:
Nylatron NSM is the premium bearing and wear nylon product available today. Solid lubricant additives impart self-lubricating, high pressure/velocity and superior wear resistance characteristics. This wear resistance is delivered without either start-up or running lubrication making it ideal for bearings, gears and wear pads. It is a proprietary type 6 nylon formulation produced using Quadrant EPP's Monocast process. Nylatron NSM was developed specifically for demanding applications where larger size parts are required. In wear applications, Nylatron NSM lasts up to 10 times longer than standard Type 6 nylon.
