Wearlon™ Nylon

Polyamides (PA) are suitable for a wide spectrum of applications.

Our range of Wearlon™ Nylon products come in several types for a variety of functionality and applications. They all share certain properties:

  • High mechanical strength, hardness and stiffness
  • High mechanical damping capacity
  • Good fatigue and very high wear resistance
  • Good sliding and emergency running properties
  • Good machinability

Polyamide grades include PA 6, PA66, PA 66 G, Oilamid and Cast Polyamide.


Common Applications:

  • Bearings
  • Guides
  • Chain wheels and guides
  • Bushing
  • Slide and guide plates

CALAUMID 1200 & 1200-Fe

Calaumid® 1200 (PA 12 G) is manufactured by an activated anion reaction. Finished and semi-finished parts are produced in pressureless casting process from laurinlactam. This process makes it possible to produce a material with high molecular weight, optimum crystallinity and very low internal stress.

Calaumid®1200 is distinctive by its significantly low moisture absorbtion, superion dimentional stability coupled with high strength even at low temperatures and an excellent chemical resistance.

Calaumid®1200 is the ideal long-term solution for bushings, bearings, rollers and wheels subjected to high loads and wear, coupled with a need for dimentional stability particularty when in direct contact with water


Calaumid® 1200-Fe has been specially developed for drive elements which must involve high torque values. The knurled metal core is completely covered with low viscosity melted mass. A uniform and tightly adhering bonding exists between core and casting, assuring an optimal and reliable power transfer.

PA 6 , PA 66 & PA 66 G

PA 6 & PA 66 are extruded and commonly used under 50mm dia for large repetition work.

PA 6 G - Produced by the monomer casting process for even better strength and abrasion/wear resistance while having a low specific weight for improved balance and reduction of vibration. Also has very good sliding properties and good damping capacity for the reduction of vibrations and noise.
