Nylatron GS plastic – Specific properties
Nylatron GS is a MoS² (molybdenum disulphide) filled nylon that offers improved strength and rigidity. With a low coefficient of linear thermal expansion, the parts of the plastic maintain better fit and clearances and have less tendency to seize as bearings.
