Nylatron® is a tradename for a family of nylon plastics, typically filled with molybdenum disulfide lubricant powder. It is used to cast plastic parts for machines, because of its mechanical properties and wear resistance.

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 clearance, and have less tendency to re-size as bearings.
Nylatron® GSM PA6 contains finely divided particles of molybdenum dusulphide (MoS2) to enhance its load bearing capabilities while maintaining the impact resistance inherent to nylon. It is most commonly used grade for gears, sheaves, and sprockets.
The first cast nylon to combine both molybdenum disulphid (MoS) and oil for the load capacity of Nylatron GSM PA6, plus improved frictional characteristics. It excels in higher pressures, and at-low speeds up to 40 fpm.
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.
Unmodified type 6 nylon offering the highest strength and hardness of the nylon 6 grades. MC 907 natural is FDA, USDA, and 3A-Dairy compliant. It is off-white and primarily used for food contact parts.
This ultra-high performance bearing grade of PA6 provides wear resistance near the levels of Nylatron NSM PA6 with superior load bearing capability and an industry first-a near zero level of “stick slip.”
Nylatron® LFG PA6 takes the performance of Nylatron® LIG PA6 and adds FDA compliance for applications where food contact is possible. Food packaging and processing equipment users can now benefit from the benefits of the material.
Nylatron® LIG combines the toughness of PA6 with an oil-based lubricant that is encapsulated within the nylon matrix. It increases the load bearing performance of the material when compared to unfilled nylons and reduces the coefficient of friction.
