This high performance cast nylon 6 bearing grade provides an even better wear resistance than Nylatron NSM, combined with superior pressure-velocity capabilities and an industry first: a near zero level of "stick-slip". The elimination of stick-slip, mostly associated with chatter or squeaking, provides an extraordinary amount of motion control for high-precision applications.
Nylons can absorb up to 7% (by weight) water under high humidity or submerged in water. This can result in dimensional changes up to 2% and a corresponding reduction of physical properties. Proper design techniques can frequently compensate for this factor.
