Nylatech Nythane

nythane-slider-padsNylatech Nythane is chemically formulated copolymer designed to offer an engineering material with the High Tensile and Compressive properties of Cast Nylon, with the impact and wear resistance of polyurethane.

Offered in 3 specific grades, Nylatech® Nythane has proven successful for the most demanding of industrial applications, and is custom formulated in one of the thee following grades:


Nylatech Nythane:

The unfilled, or “natural” grade of material, is yellow in color and displays exceedingly high impact resistance and tensile properties. Use considerations include environments with:

  • ShockNythane-Sheave
  • Abrasion
  • Vibration
  • Impact
  • Moisture absorption


Nylatech Nythane Oil:

Using the same proprietary process as our Nylatech® Oil, our liquid lubrication impregnated within the polymer chain offers excellent surface lubricity. In addition to the advantages of Nylatech Nythane, use considerations for Nylatech® Nythane Oil includes the following environments:

  • Increased Wear
  • Moisture Absorption
  • Increased Abrasion


Nylatech Nythane SL:

The impact resistance of the Nythane copolymer with the wear resistance of Nylatech® SL (solid lubricant) result in the longest lasting material for the most aggressive industrial applications. Use considerations include:

  • Extreme Wear
  • Extreme Abrasion

Typical Applications for Nylatech® Nythane:

  • Gears
  • Sprockets
  • Power Transmission Components
  • Extreme Outdoor Environments
  • Valve Seats
  • Back-up Rings
  • Butterfly Valves
  • Stem Bushings
  • Bearing Blocks
  • Impact Pads
  • Torsion Couplings
