Is Nylatron the same as nylon?

Nylatron® MD is a metal detectable grade of nylon offering improved strength and rigidity. With a lower coefficient of linear thermal expansion than Nylon 101, Nylatron MD parts maintain better fit and clearances, and have less tendency to seize as bearings.

What is Nylatron used for?

Nylatron® is a tradename for a family of nylon plastics, typically filled with molybdenum disulfide lubricant powder. It is used to cast plastic parts for machines, because of its mechanical properties and wear resistance.

How strong is Nylatron?

Nylatron GF30 PA66 It has almost double the tensile strength of unmodified Nylon 6/6, with an elongation rate of about 1/6th that of unmodified Nylon 6/6. It has good resistance to high energy radiation (such as X-rays or gamma- rays) and allows for higher maximum service temperatures when compared to other grades.

Who makes Nylatron GS?

DSM Plastics
The Nylatron® family of engineering thermoplastics is a trade name from DSM Plastics and refers to extruded nylon filled with molybdenum disulphide (MoS2).

Is Nylatron Food Safe?

(Nylatron® LFG, Nycast Nyloil® FG) are oil-filled, food grade cast nylons. They add FDA compliance for applications where food contact is possible.

What is a Nylatron washer?

A nylatron flat washer is a flat disc with a centrally located hole.

What color is Nylatron GS?

*Nylatron® GSM* contains finely divided particles of molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) to enhance its load bearing capabilities while maintaining the impact resistance inherent to nylon. It is the most commonly used grade for gears, sheaves, sprockets and custom parts. It is grey-black in color.

Is black nylon FDA approved?

It is commonly specified for screw machined, electrical insulators and food contact parts. It is stocked in both natural and black. Nylon 6/6 natural is FDA, USDA, NSF, and 3A-Dairy compliant.

Is Nylatron food safe?

Which plastic is safe for hot food?

Yes, plastic # 5 (PP) is a widely used plastic that will hold up well in hot environments and can work well as food storage containers. *FDA compliant means that a material meets all of the FDA’s guidelines for safe, direct contact with food.
