Product Details

Nylatron GSM PA6 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 custom parts. It is grey-black in color. 

»Does your application require enhanced wear properties?«

Consider Nylatron® NSM. This premium, solid lubricant-filled nylon offers the lowest wear factor of the Nylatron® family, making it an excellent choice for bearing and wear applications.

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.
