What is Nylon MD?
Nylon MD is Nylon 6/6 or Cast Nylon 6 with molybdenum disulfide (MOS2) added to improve the mechanical and thermal properties of Nylon 6/6. The basic electrical and chemical characteristics of Nylon 6/6 or Cast Nylon 6 remain unchanged.
Extra lubricity is achieved with the addition of finely divided particles of molybdenum disulfide solid lubricants permitting these parts to operate with little or no lubrication. Nylon MD is especially suited to applications where lubrication is impractical, contaminating, or difficult to maintain.
In addition to the advantages offered by Nylon non-galling and non-scratching characteristics, sound damping qualities, insulating properties, resistance oils, greases, most alkalis, solvents, and organic acids.
