Ertalon® and Nylatron® Products

Within the polyamides, commonly referred to as "nylons", we distinguish different types. The most important ones are: PA 6, PA 66, PA 11 and PA 12. The differences in physical properties which exist between these types are mainly determined by the composition and the structure of their molecular chains.

Main Characteristics

  • High mechanical strength, stiffness, hardness and toughness
  • Good fatigue resistance
  • High mechanical damping ability
  • Good sliding properties
  • Excellent wear resistance
  • Good electrical insulating properties
  • Good resistance to high energy radiation (gamma- and X-rays)
  • Good machinability

Ertalon® 66 SA

Of all the unmodified nylons, Ertalon 66 SA 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.

Ertalon® 6 SA

This material offers an optimal combination of mechanical strength, stiffness, toughness, mechanical damping properties and wear resistance. These properties, together with a good electrical insulating ability and a good chemical resistance make Erta...

Ertalon® 4.6

Offers superior heat aging and creep resistance and retention of stiffness up to 150 °C (300 °F). It is reddish brown in color and used where PA 6, PA 66, POM and PET fall short.

Ertalon® 66 GF30

Compared with virgin PA 66, this 30% glass fiber reinforced and heat stabilized nylon grade offers increased strength, stiffness, creep resistance and dimensional stability whilst retaining an excellent wear resistance. It also allows higher maximum ...

Ertalon® 6 PLA

Unmodified cast nylon 6 grade exhibiting characteristics which come very close to those of Ertalon 66 SA. It combines high strength, stiffness and hardness with good creep and wear resistance, heat aging properties and machinability.

Ertalon® 6 XAU+

Ertalon 6 XAU+ is a heat stabilized cast nylon grade with a very dense and highly crystalline structure. Compared with conventional extruded or cast nylons, Ertalon 6 XAU+ offers superior heat aging performance in air (much better resistance to therm...

Ertalon® LFX

This internally lubricated cast nylon 6 is self-lubricating in the real meaning of the word. Ertalon LFX, especially developed for unlubricated, highly loaded and slowly moving parts applications, yields a considerable enlargement of the application ...

Nylatron® NSM

Nylatron NSM is a proprietary cast nylon 6 formulation containing solid lubricant additives which grant this material self-lubricity, excellent frictional behaviour, superior wear resistance and outstanding pressure-velocity capabilities (up to 5 tim...

Nylatron® MC 901

Heat stabilized nylon offering long-term thermal stability to 130 °C (260°F). It is blue in color and used in a variety of bearing and structural applications such as wheels, gears, and custom parts.

Nylatron® GS

Molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) filled nylon offering improved strength and rigidity. With a lower coefficient of linear thermal expansion than Ertalon 66 SA (Nylon 101), Nylatron GS parts maintain better fit and clearances, and have less tendency to se...

Nylatron® GSM

Nylatron® GSM 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 c...

Nylatron® LFG

Nylatron® LFG (Lubricated Food Grade) is self-lubricating in the real meaning of the word, and has a FDA food contact compliant composition. Nylatron LFG has been specially developed for non-lubricated, highly loaded and slowly moving parts in food c...

Nylatron® GSM Blue PA6

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 coefficien...

Nylatron® 703 XL

This ultra-high performance bearing grade of PA6 provides wear resistance near the levels of Nylatron NSM with superior load bearing capability and an industry first - a near zero level of "stick-slip." This elimination of chatter provides an extrao...

Nylatron® MD

This polyamide 6 grade, containing a metal detectable additive, has been specifically tailored for use in the food processing and packaging industries where it can easily be traced by the conventional metal detection systems installed to detect conta...

RIM Formulations

Nylatron® RIM Formulations -  Reaction Injection Moulding (RIM)

Nylatron® RIM products are PA6 based formulations with very  high impact resistance. RIM is a low pressure casting technology where specific additives are mixed with the base material.. RIM casting is a perfect production technology for a wide range of products with different shapes and properties.
