Nylatron® MC907 & MC901 – Cast Unfilled Nylon 6
Unfilled cast type 6 nylon offers the highest strength and hardness of the nylon 6 grades. MC907, a natural grade that is off-white in color, is FDA, USDA, and 3A-Dairy compliant and is primarily used for food contact parts. MC901, a heat-stabilized grade, is blue in color and offers thermal stability to 260°F and is used in bearing and structural applications.
Nylatron® GSM – Cast MoS2-Filled Nylon 6
Nylatron® GSM cast nylon contains finely divided particles of molybdenum disulfide 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 gray-black in color.
Nyloil® – Cast Oil-Filled Nylon 6
This is cast nylon with built-in oil lubrication. Standard grade is green in color, but a natural (off-white) colored FDA & USDA approved grade is also available.
Nylatron® GSM Blue – Cast MoS2- & Oil-Filled Nylon 6
Nylatron® GSM Blue nylon is the first cast nylon to combine both molybdenum disulfide and oil for the load capability of Nylatron® GSM nylon, plus improved frictional characteristics. It excels in higher pressures and at low speeds – up to 40 fpm. It offer 20% lower coefficient of friction, 50% greater limiting PV, a lower “k” factor than Nylatron® GSM, and the lowest “slip-stick” of any nylon product. It is ideal for slide pads, thrust washers, and trunion bearings. Nylatron® GSM Blue should be considered for any oil-filled nylon application. It is dark blue in color.
Nylatron® NSM – Cast Solid-Lubricant-Filled Nylon 6
Nylatron® NSM is the premium bearing and wear nylon product available today. Solid lubricant additives impart self-lubricating, high pressure/velocity, and superior wear-resistant characteristics. This wear resistance is delivered without either start-up or running lubrication, making it ideal for bearings, gears, and wear pads. It is a proprietary type 6 nylon formulation produced using Quadrant EPP’s Monocast® process. Nylatron® NSM was developed specifically for demanding applications where larger size parts are required. In wear applications, Nylatron® NSM lasts up to 10 times longer than standard type 6 nylon.
