Allplastics Engineering offers oil filled nylon, a new type of cast nylon, manufactured by adding special oil to the polymer structure. Laboratory tests rave proven that this second generation oil filled nylon dramatically reduces friction in comparison to standard cast nylon.
Oil filled nylon offers the following benefits:
· High degree of self lubrication
· Increased dimensional stability
· Increased wear resistance (up to x10), due to less heat buildup
· Reduced coefficient of friction (up to 50%)
· Reduced heat buildup
· Reduced moisture absorption 5 % v 7 %
The oil filled nylon can withstand temperatures of -40°C to +100°C and +160°C short term.
Oil filled nylon is ideal for highly loaded, slow moving and unlubricated parts and machine parts where external lubrication is not possible. The nylon is also suitable for textile machinery components where pollution by external lubrication needs to be avoided.
Oil filled nylon is available in green or yellow colours. The oil filled nylon tubing is available from 80mm to 500mm, nylon rod is available from 20mm to 500mm and the sheet nylon is available in 2000mm x 1000mm sheets that can be 10mm to 50mm in thick.
