NYLON MD (CAST) Molybdenum Disulphide 

 

B.I.R.S. Machine & Supply is a distributor of Cast Nylon MD sheet, plate, rod and tube.

 

Nylon MD contains finely divided particles of molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) to enhance

its load bearing capabilities while maintaining the impact resistance inherent to nylon. It a

popular choice as a dry lubricant-filled bearing material. Manufactured to be a more

crystalline product with improved wear resistance, Cast Nylon MD also offers improved

compressive strength It is the most used grades for gears, sheaves, sprockets, and custom 

parts. Nylatron® GSM is often called Nylon MD or Nylon Mos2. Nylon MD is a black or

grey/black color.

 

FEATURES
