What is Nylatron made of?
Nylatron is a tradename for a family of nylon plastics, typically filled with molybdenum disulfide lubricant powder. It is used to cast plastic parts for machines, because of its mechanical properties and wear-resistance.
Is Nylatron the same as nylon?
Nylatron® MD is a metal detectable grade of nylon offering improved strength and rigidity. With a lower coefficient of linear thermal expansion than Nylon 101, Nylatron MD parts maintain better fit and clearances, and have less tendency to seize as bearings.
Who manufactures Nylatron?
With over 30 years of experience, we have the technical and manufacturing expertise to produce precision custom Nylatron® parts for that meet or exceed your specifications. Nylatron®, manufactured by DSM Plastics, is a popular plastic for gears, sheaves, sprockets, and other high wear, intricate parts.
What is different about Nylatron from regular nylon?
Nylatron GF30 PA66 It has almost double the tensile strength of unmodified Nylon 6/6, with an elongation rate of about 1/6th that of unmodified Nylon 6/6. It has good resistance to high energy radiation (such as X-rays or gamma- rays) and allows for higher maximum service temperatures when compared to other grades.
What is a Nylatron washer?
A nylatron flat washer is a flat disc with a centrally located hole. Nylatron flat washers are similar to nylon flat washers with increased cold flow resistance and increased bearing qualities.
What is Nylatron GS?
Nylatron® GS is a molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) filled Nylon that offers improved strength and rigidity. With a lower coefficient of linear thermal expansion, Nylatron GS parts are able to maintain better fit and clearances. They are also less inclined to seize as bearings.
What is Nylatron NSM?
Nylatron® NSM is a proprietary cast nylon 6 formulation containing solid lubricant additives which grant this material self-lubricity, excellent frictional behavior, superior wear resistance and outstanding pressure-velocity capabilities (up to 5 times higher than conventional cast nylons).
What color is Nylatron GS?
*Nylatron® GSM* 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.
Is Nylatron hygroscopic?
Because of its high crystalinity, Nylon 6 has better heat deflection, better solvent resistance, better hygroscopic characteristics, and better dimensional stability than Nylon 6/6.
What materials are used in the Nylatron® product line?
The Nylatron® product line features a variety of materials designed to excel in specific applications. Please read below on each specific Nylatron® product for more information. Nylatron® GS (extruded nylon) is a molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) filled nylon offering improved strength and rigidity.
What is the difference between Nylatron GS and Nylon 101?
Nylatron® GS (extruded nylon) is a molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) filled nylon offering improved strength and rigidity. With a lower coefficient of linear thermal expansion than Nylon 101, Nylatron GS parts maintain better fit and clearances, and have less tendency to seize as bearings.
What is Nylatron® Lig?
Nylatron® LIG combines the toughness of cast PA6 with an oil-based lubricant that is encapsulated within the nylon matrix. Nylatron® LIG increases the load bearing performance of the material when compared to unfilled nylons and reduces the coefficient of friction.
What is the difference between Nylatron® NSM nylon and UHMW-PE?
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.
