Ertalon® and Nylatron® Products

Within the polyamides, commonly referred to as "nylons", we distinguish different types. The most important ones are: PA 6, PA 66, PA 11 and PA 12. The differences in physical properties which exist between these types are mainly determined by the composition and the structure of their molecular chains.

Main Characteristics

  • High mechanical strength, stiffness, hardness and toughness
  • Good fatigue resistance
  • High mechanical damping ability
  • Good sliding properties
  • Excellent wear resistance
  • Good electrical insulating properties
  • Good resistance to high energy radiation (gamma- and X-rays)
  • Good machinability

Nylatron® 66 SA FR

This grade has been developed to fulfill the requirements as set out in the test program conducted on plastic material to measure flammability characteristics. It determines the material's tendency either to extinguish or to spread the...


Nylatron® MD

This polyamide 6 grade, containing a metal detectable additive, has been specifically tailored for use in the food processing and packaging industries where it can easily be traced by the conventional metal detection systems installed to...


Nylatron® 703 XL

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...


Nylatron® GSM Blue PA6

The first cast nylon to combine both molybdenum disulphid (MoS) and oil for the load capacity of Nylatron GSM PA6, plus improved frictional characteristics. It excels in higher pressures, and at low speeds-up to 40 fpm. It offers 20% lower...


Nylatron® GSM

Nylatron® GSM contains finely divided particles of molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) to enhance its load bearing capabilities while maintaining the impact resistance inherent to nylon. It is the most commonly used grade for gears, sheaves,...


Nylatron® GS

Molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) filled nylon offering improved strength and rigidity. With a lower coefficient of linear thermal expansion than Ertalon 66 SA (Nylon 101), Nylatron GS parts maintain better fit and clearances, and have less...


Nylatron® MC 901

This modified cast nylon 6 grade with its distinctive blue color exhibits higher toughness, flexibility and fatigue resistance than Ertalon® 6 PLA. It has proven to be an excellent material for gear wheels, racks and pinions.


Nylatron® NSM

Nylatron NSM is a proprietary cast nylon 6 formulation containing solid lubricant additives which grant this material self-lubricity, excellent frictional behaviour, superior wear resistance and outstanding pressure-velocity capabilities...


Ertalon® LFX

This internally lubricated cast nylon 6 is self-lubricating in the real meaning of the word. Ertalon LFX, especially developed for unlubricated, highly loaded and slowly moving parts applications, yields a considerable enlargement of the...


Ertalon® 6 XAU+

Ertalon 6 XAU+ is a heat stabilized cast nylon grade with a very dense and highly crystalline structure. Compared with conventional extruded or cast nylons, Ertalon 6 XAU+ offers superior heat aging performance in air (much better...


Ertalon® 6 PLA

Unmodified cast nylon 6 grade exhibiting characteristics which come very close to those of Ertalon 66 SA. It combines high strength, stiffness and hardness with good creep and wear resistance, heat aging properties and machinability.

Ertalon® 66 GF30

Compared with virgin PA 66, this 30% glass fiber reinforced and heat stabilized nylon grade offers increased strength, stiffness, creep resistance and dimensional stability whilst retaining an excellent wear resistance. It also allows...


Ertalon® 4.6

Offers superior heat aging and creep resistance and retention of stiffness up to 150 °C (300 °F). It is reddish brown in color and used where PA 6, PA 66, POM and PET fall short.


Ertalon® 6 SA

This material offers an optimal combination of mechanical strength, stiffness, toughness, mechanical damping properties and wear resistance. These properties, together with a good electrical insulating ability and a good chemical resistance...


Ertalon® 66 SA

Of all the unmodified nylons, Ertalon 66 SA is the strongest, most rigid and has one of the highest melting points. It is commonly specified for screw machined electrical insulators and food contact parts.


Nylatron® SLG PA6

Nylatron® SLG PA6 is self-lubricating in the real meaning of the word. Nylatron SLG PA6 has been specially developed for non-lubricated, highly loaded and slowly moving parts. Compared to standard cast nylons, it offers lower maintenance...


RIM Formulations

Nylatron® RIM Formulations -  Reaction Injection Moulding (RIM)

Nylatron® RIM products are PA6 based formulations with very  high impact resistance. RIM is a low pressure casting technology where specific additives are mixed with the base material.. RIM casting is a perfect production technology for a wide range of products with different shapes and properties.
