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.Nylatron® NSM is the premium bearing and wear nylon product available today. Solid lubricant additives impart self-lubricating, high pressure/velocity and superior wear resistance characteristics. This wear resistance is delivered without either start-up or running lubrication making it ideal for bearings, gears and wear pads. It is a proprietary type 6 nylon formulation produced the monocast process. Nylatron® NSM lasts up to 10 times longer than standard type 6 nylon.
