Nylatron material from Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products has helped a medical manufacturer to decrease maintenance time and eliminate stress on the mating parts of its laboratory centrifuge.

The centrifuge originally used stainless steel, but this was causing problems as a result of increased friction and its heavy weight, which caused the mating parts to fail.

After testing some exotic materials, engineers found that Nylatron MC907 in black was the best replacement material.

Key benefits of product application

  • Plastic has been shown to offer better dimensional stability and to perform with less friction than older, more traditional materials.
  • Nylatron MC907 is strong and resistant to impact, while offering good mechanical and electrical properties.
  • Thanks to its lighter weight and self-lubricating properties, maintenance time has been decreased and the stress on mating parts has been eliminated.

Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products

Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products (QEPP) is the world’s leading manufacturer of semi-finished products made from general engineering and high-performance plastics. Quadrant also designs, develops and produces finished parts and solutions for a broad variety of applications in many different industries globally. Its product range extends from polyamide (PA), polyacetal (POM) and ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW-PE) to high-performance materials such as fluoroplastics and polybenzimidazole (PBI), which features temperature resistance to over 425C (800F) while maintaining total dimensional stability. The semi-finished products are machined or thermoformed and used in a variety of industries ranging from electronics through packaging machinery to chemical processing for applications where properties such as non-stick characteristics, abrasion resistance, dimensional stability, chemical and acid resistance or purity are extremely important.
