Material: NYLON 66 LUBRICATED:



UNREINFORCED LUBRICATED NYLON TYPE 6/6
NYLATRON G.S.
DSM Engineering Plastics - Nylatron� G.S. 1/8 55B Unreinforced Lubricated Nylon Type 6/6
Nylon 66 with molybdenum disulphide (M0S2) solid lubricant added. Nylatron G.S. offers superior tensile and compressive strength, lower surface friction, higher heat resistance and greater dimensional stability than general purpose nylon 6/6. Nylatron is dark charcoal grey in color.
