Filled Acetal Rod
ZL engineering plastics
it is now offering copolymer
with a proprietary filler
that improves component
minimizes heat build
up. The new machining
stock will be sold
under the tradename
ZL™ 900-T. Parts machined from this new material are
ideal for use as bearings and bushings that require low
friction performance and long wear life.
The rod is available in diameters from 0.75” to 5”.
Standard length of rods is 39 inches. The material is light
blue in color.
Internally Lubricated Cast Nylon 6
ZL engineering plastics also introduced ZL™ 1100 T, an
internally lubricated cast nylon 6. Parts machined
from stock shapes provide a continuously lubricated surface
that is ideal for applications where maintenance
greasing is difficult or impossible. It is manufactured with
proprietary solid lubricant additives that improve the
nylon’s wear resistance and provide a coefficient of friction
of only 0.15. In addition, ZL 1100 T offers improved sliding
properties, and better machinability
than standard cast nylon grades.
The material provides longer
life, less wear and reduced
slip-stick. Typical applications
for include bearings,
and wear pads. ZL
inventories rod from
2” diameter to 28”
diameter, and plate from 1/4”to
3” thick. It is light grey in color.
