Primarily used for unlubricated moving parts due to the addition of mineral oil during the process stages. The lubricant is evenly distributed and an integral part of the material and will not drain or spin out, even under arduous working conditions and never needs replenishing.
Oil filled Cast Nylon has an increased bearing life – up to five times that of Natural Cast Nylon 6.
The addition of the mineral oil also reduces the coefficient of friction when running dry, resulting in better dimensional stability and rate of wear. Used for bearings, gears, bushes, rollers, wheels, etc.
In addition to the specialist pigment used to obtain the colour during processing, UV blocking and heat stabilising substances are also added, enabling the material to retain mechanical properties, even at high operating temperatures – for example short term 140°C and long term 110°C. Used in High temperature, components, cable sheaves, bushes, rollers, bearings, wear strips, PADS etc.
