Nylatron® NSM PA6
- Broadest size range availability
- Good mechanical and electrical properties
- Ideal balance of strength and toughness
- Cast as finished parts and near net shapes (nylon 6)
In wear applications, Nylatron NSM PA6 lasts up to 10 times longer than standard Type 6 nylon.
Nylatron® NSM nylon offers up to 10 times longer part life than standard type 6 nylon in this pivot bushing on a mining dump truck. (Prior material: Bronze)
Wear pads made of Nylatron® NSM nylon are light weight, able to support heavy loads, are non-abrasive to mating surfaces. (Prior material: Bronze and cast iron covered with UHMW-PE)
Gears made of Nylatron® NSM nylon run quieter and wear longer without the need for lubrication on processing equipment. (Prior materials: Bronze and steel)
Nylons can absorb up to 7% (by weight) water under high humidity or submerged in water. This can result in dimensional changes up to 2% and a corresponding reduction of physical properties. Proper design techniques can frequently compensate for this factor.
