Reading, PA (Vocus) March 30, 2009
Reading, PA-- Quadrant EPP has expanded their industry leading product line to include a range of Nylatron® 4.6 rod and sheet sizes. This high temperature grade of nylon is based on Stanyl® 4.6 raw material produced by Netherlands based DSM Engineering Plastics.
Made available first in Europe, Nyaltron 4.6 was created to give OEM design engineers an option in Nylon (PA) that wasn't previously available. Nylatron 4.6 has a heat deflection temperature (ASTM D648) over 300ÚF (150ÚC) which exceeds most PA, POM and PET based materials. Nylatron 4.6 retains its strength and stiffness at elevated temperature but still offers the toughness and durability that make nylon a sound design choice.
Nylatron 4.6 has been used for wear-resistant parts in industrial process machinery and as valve components in chemical processing applications. Its' retention of physical properties at elevated temperature has made it ideal for small series, machined automotive and transportation components where under-hood specifications require 300ÚF (150ÚC) capability.
Quadrant produces rods up to 60mm (2.36") diameter in 3m lengths and sheets up to 50mm (1.97") thick as 1m (39.37") and 3m (118.11") lengths. Nylatron 4.6 is reddish-brown in color.
