Material Data Sheet

Material: Nylatron® GS Nylon

Molybdenum Disulphide (MoS2) Filled Polyamide

Nylatron® GS is Molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) filled nylon. By adding the Molybdenum disulphide Nylatron becomes stronger and more rigid then natural Nylon. The filler also give Nylatron® a lower coefficient of thermal expansion allowing it to keep tighter tolerences and prevents it from seizing in bearing applicatons.
