NYLATRON® GS (EXTRUDED MOLY-FILLED)

NYLATRON® GS (EXTRUDED MOLY-FILLED)

Material Information

Nylaton® GS is an extruded moly-filled nylon 6/6. The moly particles dispersed throughout the material act as a dry lubricant, to enhance load bearing and wear capabilities while also improving strength and rigidity. Nylatron® GS also has a lower coefficient of thermal expansion than unfilled nylon. However, unlike Nylatron® GSM, the addition of the moly particles results in some loss of impact strength.

 

Application

  • Bearings
  • Rollers and wheels
  • Wear pads
  • Gears
  • Nozzles

  • Lightweight
  • High wear and impact resistance
  • High tensile strength
  • Absorbs moisture
  • High modulus of elasticity
  • High heat distortion temperature
  • Resists wear, abrasion, and vibration
  • High chemical resistance
