Nylon and Nylatron®
The low-cost, lightweight, long-wearing replacements for metals, rubber and more.
Lighter and longer wearing than metals and other engineering materials, nylon and Nylatron also offer lower fabricated part cost in a wide variety of applications. Used extensively across multiple industries, the material provides an ideal combination of high strength and toughness, outstanding chemical and corrosion resistance, and exceptional wear and abrasion resistance.
Nylon and Nylatron offer design and application flexibility with a variety of grade options, including unfilled, glass fiber filled, oil filled, internally lubricated, heat stabilized and fiber reinforced. The material can be cast as finished parts and near net shapes, or can be custom cast for even greater design versatility. Nylon and Nylatron are easily machined, extruded and fabricated.
