Nylatron® GSM Nylon -- Nylatron® GSM contains finely divided particles of molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) to enhance its load bearing capabilities while maintaining the impact resistance inherent to nylon. Nylatron® GSM is the most commonly used grade for gears, sheaves, sprockets and custom parts. Nylatron® GSM is grey-black in color.
Nylatron® NSM Nylon -- Nylatron® NSM is the 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 was developed specifically for demanding applications where larger size parts are required. Nylatron® NSM is ideal for bearings, gears and wear pads. In wear applications, Nylatron® NSM lasts up to 10 times longer than standard Type 6 nylon.
Nylatron® GSM Blue Nylon -- The first cast nylon to combine both molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) and oil for the load capability of Nylatron® GSM nylon, plus improved frictional characteristics. Nylatron® GSM Blue excels in higher pressures, and at low speeds-up to 40 fpm. Nylatron® GSM Blue offers 20% lower coefficient of friction, 50% greater limiting PV, and a lower "k" factor than Nylatron® GSM, making it ideal for slide pads, thrust washers and trunion bearings. Nylatron® GSM Blue should be considered for any oil-filled nylon application. Nylatron® GSM Blue is dark blue in color.
Nylatron® LFG -- Nylatron® LFG takes the performance of Nylatron® LIG and adds FDA compliance for applications where food contact is possible. Food packaging and processing equipment users can now benefit from the wear resistance, toughness and low coefficient of friction of Nylatron® LFG.
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. Nylatron® LIG is an ideal material for industrial application in conveying and processing industries.
Nylatron® 703XL -- This ultra-high performance bearing grade of PA6 provides wear resistance near the levels of Nylatron® NSM with superior load bearing capability and an industry first - a near zero level of "stick-slip." This elimination of chatter provides an extraordinary amount of control for high-precision applications.
Nylatron® GS PA66 -- This MoS2 filled nylon offers 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.
