Devlon materials are amongst the toughest and hardest wearing thermoplastics available. Produced by monomer casting, they provide a comprehensive range of wear resistance, impact strength and moisture absorption properties.
Devlon T100 is our proprietary cast material which covers a wide range of applications.
With its inherently stress free and excellent wear properties, low friction and improved impact strength, it is a proven work horse in a range of applications and industries.
Typical applications for Devlon T100 include…
- Crane sheaves
- Bearing rings
- Racks and pinions
With the highest molecular weight of any Devlon thermoplastic, Devlon S-Grade offers superior mechanical properties, rendering it our premium of all engineering grade thermoplastics.
Particularly suited for larger sized components, it yields optimum performance in rigorous and abrasive applications at ambient temperatures.
Typical applications for Devlon S-Grade include…
- Thrust plates
- Seal rings
Devlon V-API provides similar performance levels to Devlon S-Grade but has been specifically tailored for high temperature and high pressure applications.
Dimensional stability is a particular feature of this material due to its especially low moisture absorption, making it ideal for offshore applications where weight-saving, non-corrosive and impact wear properties are imperative.
Typical applications for Devlon V-API include…
- Valve seat inserts
- Bundle spacers
- Tubing hanging centralisers
- Cable protectors
- Hot stabs
A self-lubricating material ideally suited for slow-moving, dry-running applications requiring low friction and where lubrication is not possible.
Reduced wear through lower friction means excellent retention of physical properties and very little maintenance is required for this material.
Typical applications for Devlube include…
- Wear pads
- Cam followers
- Worm screws
- Bearing blocks
- Conveyer components
Devlon A153 is a specially formulated high viscosity Nylon 66, giving superior wear characteristics, improved strength and rigidity, providing greater design reliability when strength, weight and size are crucial.
A153 has a significantly lower linear coefficient of thermal expansion than standard grade Nylon 66 and therefore maintains dimensional tolerances and clearances more accurately in applications, involving thermal cycling. A153 has a maximum operating temperature of between 90°C and 120°C, compared to 85°C for standard grade Nylon 66.
Typical applications for Devlon A153 include…
- Wear pads
- Rollers / Wheels
- Thrust washers
- Piston seats
- Bearing cages
