NYLATRON GS, GSM and NSM (Nylon 66 + MOS2)

Nylatron GS – a specially formulated Nylon 66 which contains controlled quantities of Molybdenum Disulphide (MOS2) – demonstrates greatly improved self-lubricating properties compared to unfilled Nylon 66. Nylatron GS sliding against steel would show between 0.25 and 0.30 coefficient of friction as opposed to 0.30 – 0.40 for unfilled Nylon 66. The maximum working temperature is between 95°C and 100°C for Nylatron GS, compared to 85°C and 90°C for Nylon 66.
