Plastim Omniamid Oil Filled

Omniamid (Oil-Filled)

Overview

This product is Cast Nylon 6 modified with the addition in high percentage of special lubricators which remains in solution in the material. Our unique method of production, grants a homogeneous distribution of oil particles within the product. This method improves self-lubrication, shock resistance and hygroscopicity, which decreases. Machining is also much easier. Omniamid (Oil filled) offers improved mechanical features in comparison of the plain Cast Nylons. Fit for special applications.

Benefits:

Self-lubricating.
Lowest coefficient of all the Cast Nylons.
Wear resistance is better than Akulon 6 (Natural).
Tensile stress and compressive strength are similar to Omniamid (Black).
Excellent machining properties.
Improved antistatic properties linked to lower moisture absorption.
It is resistant to alkali, inorganic compounds and solvents.

Weaknesses:

It is hygroscopic, even if to a lower extent than Cast Nylon (Natural).
It can't be used in contact with food.
Use in the electrical field is to be avoided as the electrical properties change with the change of moisture content.

Applications:

Thanks to its excellent self-lubricating property, high shock resistance and compressive strength, together with the possibility to produce large-sized parts, it is widely used to produce:
Bearings.
Bushings.
Pulleys.
Wheels.
Anti-wear guides.

Because of its excellent abrasion resistance it is used for:
Gear wheels.
Guide bearings.
Bearings.
Sliding bearings.

In the building of parts for:
Construction machines.
Excavators.
Earthmovers.

In the shipbuilding industry its better weather resistance makes it suitable for:
Rollers.
Haulage.
Sliding guides,
Bearings.

In cable-car systems its uses include:
Pulleys.
Wheels.
Sliding blocks.
