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.



Proven Applications


Nylatron MC 901 is custom cast to size saving fabrication time and money in this port cap and diffuser nozzle application. It also weighs only 1/7 the former parts making parts easier to handle and install (prior material: stainless steel).


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.
