Nylatron NSM

Polyamide 6
Cast Grade • Natural Color



Developed specifically for demanding applications, Nylatron NSM outperforms all other "premium" wear grade materials by far. Ideal for bearings and wear pads, Nylatron NSM offers advantages beyond superior wear resistance at an affordable price. It provides weight and noise reduction, corrosion resistance, and easy machining. With less downtime and reduced maintenance, save time and money by realizing the increased performance and productivity of this self-lubricating nylon.

  • Excellent Cost vs. Performance Ratio Value
  • Extended part life
  • Highest wear resistant thermoplastic available
  • Self lubricating Nylon 6 for superior wear resistance
  • Continues to outperform others or other materials time and time again
