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 times higher than conventional cast nylons). Being particularly suited for higher velocity, unlubricated moving parts applications, it is the perfect complement to the oil-filled grade Ertalon® LFX.
Nylatron® NSM 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)
Nylon offers better wear resistance, compressive strength and fatigue resistance than other materials in a variety of wear applications. (Prior materials: Steel, Aluminum, UHMW-PE, Injection Molded Nylon)
Wear pads made of Nylatron® NSM 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 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.
