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)
Best bearing and wear nylon product available today. Proprietary type 6 nylon formulation produced using Quadrant's Monocast® process. Solid lubricant additives impart self-lubricating, high pressure/velocity and superior wear resistance characteristics. Nylatron NSM PA6 was developed specifically for demanding applications where larger size parts are required. It is ideal for bearings, gears and wear pads.
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.
