Nylatron 703 XL plastic – Specific properties

Nylatron 703 XL is an ultra-high performance bearing grade of PA 6 that provides wear resistance near the levels of Nylatron NSM combined with superior pressure-velocity capabilities and an industry first; a near zero level of “stick-slip”. The elimination of stick-slip, usually associated with chatter or squeaking, provides an extraordinary amount of motion control for high-precision applications.
