Description

Nylatron is a family of nylon plastics that are typically filled with molybdenum disulfide. MoS2 as a filler turns this polymer stiffer, harder and more dimensional stable at cost of reduced impact strength. Its crystalline structure enhances bearing and wear properties. Nylatron GS can increase the service life of components due to its lubrication properties making the choice of Nylatron cost effective. When compared to unfilled nylon 6/6 Nylatron offers greater wear resistance, lower surface friction, higher strength and greater rigidity. Key features of Nylatron GS include:

  • High mechanical strength, stiffness, hardness and toughness
  • High mechanical damping ability
  • Improved load bearing properties
  • Lubrication properties
  • Outstanding wear resistance
  • Good electrical insulating properties
