As leading shim washer manufacturers, we work with a wide scope of materials, including Nylatron GS. It is one of the many different types of materials that we are proud to manufacture components with here at Stephens Gaskets. All of these materials have their own unique sets of advantages and disadvantages. In addition, with decades of experience under our belts, our team has an impressive wealth of knowledge and skills to support our customers. We can talk you through all of the different component options we have, and ensure that you choose the right material for your requirements.
At Stephens Gaskets, we treat every project individually. We take a bespoke approach to each requirement in order to find the best solution.
What is Nylatron GS?
Nylatron GS is a specially enhanced version of Nylon 66. The material contains specific measurements of Molybdenum Disulphide (MOS2). The addition of this means that Nylon GS has much better self-lubrication properties compared to the unfilled Nylon 66. Components such as washers that are made from Nylon GS are much stiffer, harder, and more dimensionally stable than those made from standard Nylon.
The key advantage to Nylatron GS is its self-lubrication. The addition of molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) to Nylon means that the material has extra lubricity. As a result, parts made from Nylatron GS can function with little or no lubrication. This etra lubricity also means that parts will often have a longer service life – making them highly cost-effective. Nylatron GS shim washers also have fantastic mechanical strength and fatigue resistance. Alongside this, they have great wear resistance and electrical insulating properties.
> Low coefficient of friction – the material is ideal for most moving parts and allows them to move over surfaces smoothly and seamlessly. This makes them suitable for bearings and gears, along with other sliding parts.
> Dielectric properties – making the material ideal for electrical insulation
> Great abrasion resistance – allowing Nylatron GS to lend itself to medium stress applications with high mechanical strength
At Stephens Gaskets, our Nylatron GS shims washers are most commonly used in bearings, wheels, rollers, and gears. The Nylatron GS can create a barrier between the internal and external structures and therefore is ideal for many construction applications.
