Quadrant EPP designs a range of Nylatron 4.6 rod and sheet sizes. Based on DSM Engineering Plastics' Stanyl 4.6 raw material, this high-temperature grade nylon was created to give OEM design engineers a nylon option not previously available. Nylatron 4.6 has a heat-deflection temperature over 300°F (150°C), which exceeds most PA-, POM-, and PET-based materials. The product retains its strength and stiffness at an elevated temperature but still offers toughness and durability. 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 make it suitable for small series, machined automotive and transportation components where underhood specifications require 300°F (150°C) capability.
