Nylon 6 Oil Filled

Cast nylon offers a combination of good mechanical properties, excellent bearing and wear characteristics, and the large-size capabilities of the casting process. Its fatigue resistance, noise damping ability, corrosion resistance, and lightweight make Cast Nylon ideal for metal replacement applications, such as bearings, gears, sheaves, and sprockets. At one-eighth the weight of bronze, cast nylon is easier to handle and maintain than metals such as iron, aluminum, brass, and bronze, which it typically replaces in industrial wear applications.

Other materials that cast nylon commonly replaces because of its superior performance are laminated phenolic, elastomers, and wood. The excellent wear and abrasion resistance results in extended component life and lower maintenance costs. Various formulations are readily available in rod, plate, and tube. Non-standard shapes, such as rings, discs, and blocks can be economically produced in small quantities with short lead times. Custom parts can be cast-to-size or near-net-shape with relatively inexpensive tooling.


This type of cast nylon is suitable for most anti-friction applications because of the carefully dispersed oil-based lubricant additive. The lubricant results in a highly crystalline, internally lubricated, high strength material with enhanced wear and reduced friction properties.


FG is an approved material for direct food contact that is FDA and USDA 3A compliant.


MDX is designed to accommodate slightly higher load capabilities.
