Nylacast Oilon

Nylacast Oilon™ was the very first authentic lubricated Nylon, having a blended liquid lubricant system built-in during the process stages, which obviously resulted in a substantial increase in bearing life, 5 times that of Natural cast nylon and 25 times that of phosphor bronze. The lubricant contained within the material will not drain, machine, spin, leech or dry out and never needs replenishment. A uniformed distribution of the lubricant throughout the product guarantees a constant performance over the whole service life and improvements in the rate of wear, sliding frictional properties, abrasion resistance and stick-slip performance are just a few of the benefits offered by this material.

World Leader for over 40 Years

Nylacast Oilon™ was the very first authentic lubricated Nylon to have a blended liquid lubricant system built-in during the process stages.  For the past 40 years, Oilon has acquired an unmatchable track record across the globe and continues to go from strength to strength.There have been many imitators over the years since Oilon has been introduced, however, Nylacast Oilon remains the premier oil-lubricated nylon available from any source.

Oil Lubrication System

Premium Oil-based lubricant is uniformly distributed throughout the Nylacast Oilon material product to guarantee constant whole life performance, The lubricant will not drain, machine, spin, leech or dry out and never needs replenishment.

FDA Compliant

FDA compliant medical white oil is used within Nylacast Oilon rather than silicone fluids.

Polytetrafluoroethylene, commonly known as PTFE is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene. An incredibly versatile material grade, PTFE features non-wetting and non-stick surface properties, high-density formulation and high-temperature resistance, making PTFE a truly versatile material with a wide variety of applications.
POM-C (Acetal)
POM-C (Acetal)
POM-C otherwise known as Acetal Copolymer features highly crystalline resins, making this material strong and rigid, with a low coefficient of friction in comparison to metals and other plastics. POM-C is also creep resistant and is recommended for applications where dimensional stability is important.
