Nylatron MC 901 – Specific properties

Nylatron® MC 901 is an impact-modified cast nylon 6 grade that exhibits stiffer, harder, and dimensionally more stable properties than unmodified nylons. This plastic offers higher toughness, flexibility, and damping properties, amongst other properties, without impairing the inherent properties of standard cast nylons.
