nylatron GS0       Nylon Plastic                           

PA66 + MoS2

Material has an even better wear resistance and a lower coefficient of friction than nylon 66. Stiffness, tensile strength and temperature resistance are also improved. Nylatron® GS is ideal for dynamic bearing and wear applications. 


This gives excellent wear resistance, self-lubrication and low friction characteristics. It is an ideal material for dynamic bearing applications, even at elevated temperatures up to 100°C. These superior mechanical properties, combined with lower moisture absorption, extend its range of uses over Nylatron®M.

nylatron MC9010 

Has Better impact strength and fatigue resistance compared with other cast nylons in the range. It has proved an outstanding material for large gears, racks and pinions, successfully replacing phosphor bronze and cast iron in many applications.

Nylon represents a family of synthetic polymers, a thermoplastic material, first produced on February 28, 1935 by Gerard J. Berchet of Wallace Carothers' research group at DuPont. The first product was a nylon-bristled toothbrush (1938), followed more famously by women's 'nylons' stockings (1940).

It is made of repeating units linked by peptide bonds (another name for amide bonds) and is frequently referred to as polyamide (PA). Nylon was the first commercially successful polymer and the first synthetic fiber to be made entirely from coal, water and air.

These are formed into monomers of intermediate molecular weight, which are then reacted to form long polymer chains. It was intended to be a synthetic replacement for silk and substituted for it in parachutes after the United States entered World War II in 1941, making stockings hard to find until the war's end. Nylon fibers are now used in fabrics and ropes, and solid nylon is used for mechanical parts and as an engineering material. Engineering grade Nylon is processed by extrusion, casting & injection molding. Type 6/6 Nylon 101 is the most common commercial grade of Nylon, and Nylon 6 is the most common commercial grade of cast Nylon
