Introduced as one of the first Engineering Plastics, Cast Nylon 6 has delivered successful performance – with and without lubrication – in a variety of diverse applications, particularly as a bearing material. Nylon 6 is lightweight, offers extremely good wear resistance, high tensile strength and high modulus of elasticity.  Cast Nylon 6 is offered in the widest range of custom sizes and grades.  It’s available in 12 custom colors.  We offer a quick turn around time on all custom grades with a standard lead time of less than 10 days. 

Blue Cast Nylon® 6

· Cont. Service Temperature 260 F 
· Intermittent service up to 330 F 
· Excellent Vibration Resistance 
· Rods & Disks from 1 to 60 inch Dia.
· Plates up to 48x120 
· Tubular bar up to 60 inch Dia. 
· Heat Stabilized / Blue in color

Blue Cast Nylon has a heat stabilizer that retards the loss of physical properties as temperature increase. This allows the material to function at approximately 10% higher temperatures than standard grades; meaning Blue Cast Nylon operating at 200° F will have approximately the same physical properties as a standard grade operating at 185° F. Maximum intermittent temperature for Blue Cast Nylon is 330° F and continuous operating temperature is 250° F (compared to 230° F for standard grades).

Moly Filled Nylon® 6

· Cont. Service Temperature 230 F 
· Dry lubricant filled 
· Improved Compressive Strength 
· Enhanced load bearing properties 
· Rods & Disks from 1 to 60 inch Dia.
· Plates up to 48x120 
· Tubular bar up to 60 inch Dia.

Moly Filled Nylon contains finely divided particles of molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) to enhance its load bearing capabilities while maintaining the impact resistance inherent to nylon.  It’s the most commonly used grade for gears, sheaves, sprockets and custom parts.  Moly Filled Nylon is a popular choice as a dry lubricant-filled bearing material. Manufactured to be a more crystalline product with improved wear resistance and also offers improved compressive strength and its charcoal grey / black in color.
 

Nyloil Oil Filled Nylon® 6

· Cont. Service Temperature 230 F 
· Oil impregnated for self lubrication 
· Excellent in marine applications 
· FDA Compliant 
· Rods & Disks from 1 to 60 inch Dia.
· Plates up to 48x120 
· Tubular bar up to 60 inch Dia.

A cast nylon with built-in oil lubrication, Oil Filled Nylon or NYLOIL provides superior machinability, performance, and durability compared to other plastic and traditional bearing materials. Three grades of NYLOIL are available to fit the most demanding applications: original Green Nyloil for most bearing applications; food-grade, Natural Nyloil-FG for direct contact with food; and MoS2 filled Gray Nyloil-MDX with slightly higher compressive load capabilities than original NYLOIL.
 

Premium Bearing Grades

 Cont. Service Temperature 230 F 
· Low coefficient of friction
· Superior wear resistance 
· Rods & Disks from 1 to 60 inch Dia.
· Plates up to 48x120 
· Tubular bar up to 40 inch Dia. 
· Nycast RX is Red/Nycast GX is Gray

NYCAST® RX (Red) and NYCAST® GX (Gray) are solid lubricant filled nylon 6. Developed after years of research as an alternative to other “solid lubricated” cast nylons, RX and GX give engineers another superior choice from ourfamily of premium grade cast nylons.  With a limiting PV of 16,000, NYCAST® RX and GX are specially formulated, self-lubricating grades great for wear pads, bearings, thrust washers, bushings and gears.    
 

Extruded Nylon® 6 / 6

· Cont. Service Temperature 220 F 
· Good abrasion and wear resistance
· Easy to machine 
· Rods & Disks from 1/4 to 6.0” Dia. 
· Plates up to 48x120 
· Natural is FDA & USDA Compliant 
· Available in 8 an 10 foot bars

Of all the unmodified nylons, Extruded Nylon 66 also known as Nylon 101 is the strongest, most rigid and has one of the highest melting points. It is commonly specified for screw machined electrical insulators and food contact parts. It is stocked in both natural and black.  Natural Extruded Nylon 66 is FDA, USDA, NSF, and 3A-Dairy compliant.  Extruded Nylon 66 is also available in Moly Filled and Glass filled varieties. Extruded Nylon 66 rods are available in 8 and 10 foot lengths and
