October 8, 2009—Nylatron NSM, a wear-resistant machinable nylon grade, is available in a wider range of tubular shapes for machining larger bearings, bushings and wear parts. Nylatron manufacturer Quadrant introduced the new sizes in response to engineers and designers looking to reduce material costs and fabrication time in larger bearing applications.

Tubular Nylatron shapes are normally produced with diameters up to 34 inches, but larger diameters are possible as well. Wall cross section is as thin as 1 inch, and the tubes come up 39 inches long. Nylatron NSM has a wear life five times more than other cast nylon materials, and it allows for higher loads and speeds based on an LPV of 15,000.
