NYLON NYLATRON® NS AND NYLATRON® NSM

NYLATRON® NS AND NYLATRON® NSM NYLON Key Facts

Nylatron® NS and Nylatron® NSM nylons are proprietary bearing materials based on well-known Nylatron® and Monocast® nylon technology. These nylon formulations contain solid lubricant additives which impart self-­ lubricating, high Pressure Velocity (PV), and superior wear resistance characteristics. In many applications superior wear resistance is delivered without either start-up or running lubrication.

Nylatron® NS Nylon

This material is a type 6/6 extruded nylon compound with special additives offering superior bearing properties. It is recommended for applications where, in addition to superior bearing performance, other traditional 6/6 nylon properties also are desired.

Nylatron® NSM Nylon

This formulation is based on a Monocast® process using type 6 nylon and was developed for demanding applications where larger-size parts are required. The Monocast® process permits the production of massive shapes not possible with standard extrusion.

Lower Cost in Use

The “k” factor is a measure of the wear rate for materials. A low “k” factor indicates a low wear rate (better wear resistance). The chart above provides wear  and coefficient of friction data, and limiting PV values for various bearing materials including standard Nylatron® GSM nylon. This data was generated using standard bearing test procedures.

The data, for example, show that Nylatron® NSM wears 5.9 times longer than Nyloil. Note that our standard Nylatron® GSM nylon has better wear resistance than most “premium price” bearing materials. Applications can now be upgraded from standard materials to Nylatron® NS and Nylatron® NSM nylon at a lower total cost.
