Hamilton Caster introduces new Nylast® wheels well suited for high capacity applications in corrosive and sanitary environments. With a formidable tensile strength of 11,000 psi and resistance to both moisture and many chemicals, Nylast® wheels are a popular alternative to steel for extremely heavy load applications.
The Nylast® wheel’s performance characteristics are best apt for applications in the chemical, food, and heavy manufacturing industries.
Nylast® wheels are made from solid cast high performance nylon that has superior impact strength and resilience compared to conventional injection-molded nylon wheels.
The Hamilton Nylast® material is specially formulated with finely divided particles of molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) to enhance its load bearing capability while maintaining the impact resistance inherent to nylon. The face, sides and bore of all Nylast® wheels are CNC-machined to precision tolerances to ensure a consistent quality product. A popular combination is to mount Nylast® wheels in Hamilton’s stainless steel casters due to their shared corrosive resistant properties.
The wheels are also standard offerings in many other Hamilton forged steel caster series. Most offerings from 4”-12” diameters are stocked at the factory for same day/next day PRONTO® shipment. Special order sizes are available from 2-1/2” diameter up to 18” diameter.
