Nylatron NSM plastic – Specific properties

Nylatron® NSM plastic is a molded PA 6 grade with a solid lubricant (PE vax) that makes this material self-lubricating, gives it excellent sliding properties, wear resistance, and a high PV value durability (up to 5 times higher than standard molded PA 6). The casting material provides manufacturing possibilities for large pieces in various shapes.
