Product Details

Measure the Performance 
Developed specifically for demanding applications, Nylatron® NSM outperforms all other "premium" wear grade materials by far. Ideal for bearings and wear pads, Nylatron® NSM offers advantages beyond superior wear resistance at an affordable price. It provides weight and noise reduction, corrosion resistance, and easy machining. With less downtime and reduced maintenance, save time and money by realizing the increased performance and productivity of this self-lubricating nylon.

  • keyboard_arrow_downBearings

    Nylatron® NSM nylon offers up to 10 times longer part life than standard type 6 nylon in this pivot bushing on a mining dump truck. (Prior material: Bronze)


  • keyboard_arrow_downRollers, Wheels, Wear Components


    Nylon offers better wear resistance, compressive strength and fatigue resistance than other materials in a variety of wear applications. (Prior materials: Steel, Aluminum, UHMW-PE, Injection Molded Nylon)

  • keyboard_arrow_downWear Pads

    Wear pads made of Nylatron® NSM nylon are light weight, able to support heavy loads, are non-abrasive to mating surfaces. (Prior material: Bronze and cast iron covered with UHMW-PE)


  • keyboard_arrow_downGears

    Gears made of Nylatron® NSM nylon run quieter and wear longer without the need for lubrication on processing equipment. (Prior materials: Bronze and 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.
