Nylon is one of the most widely used and versatile
thermoplastic resins. Its combination of physical properties and reasonable price make it a favorite choice for numerous applications. Nylons
toughness, wear resistance, tensile strength and lubricity make it a good choice for many mechanical machine parts. Nylon is also lightweight,
weighing only 1/7 the weight of Bronze.
Nylatron® is a registered trade name of Quadrant EPP. The Nylatron® product line
features a variety of materials designed to excel in specific applications. Please read below on each specific Nylatron® product for more
Nylatron® GS (extruded nylon) is a molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) filled
nylon offering improved strength and rigidity. With a lower coefficient of linear thermal expansion than Nylon 101, Nylatron® GS parts maintain
better fit and clearances, and have less tendency to seize as bearings.

Nylatron® GSM Blue is the first cast nylon to combine both molybdenum
disulphide (MoS) and oil for the load capacity of Nylatron® GSM nylon, plus improved frictional characteristics. It excels in higher pressures,
and at low speeds-up to 40 fpm.

Nylatron® LIG combines the toughness of cast PA6 with an oil-based lubricant
that is encapsulated within the nylon matrix. Nylatron® LIG increases the load bearing performance of the material when compared to unfilled nylons and
reduces the coefficient of friction.

Nylatron® MD is a metal detectable grade of nylon offering improved strength
and rigidity. With a lower coefficient of linear thermal expansion than Nylon 101, Nylatron MD parts maintain better fit and clearances, and have
less tendency to seize as bearings.
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.
