Nylatron® NSM PA6

Polyamide 6

Nylatron® NSM PA6 is a solid lubricant-filled, proprietary cast nylon formulation that exhibits superior self-lubricating properties, outstanding friction behavior, maximum wear resistance, and excellent dynamic load-bearing capacities that are up to five times higher than conventional cast nylon grades. As the most wear-resistant nylon available, Nylatron® NSM PA6 components excel in higher velocity, unlubricated moving parts requiring larger geometries. With its exceptional wear resistance and a service life up to 10 times longer than standard nylons, the material is a favored solution for bearings, gears, wear pads, pulleys, sheaves, bushings, valve seats, and seals.
