Interstate Advanced Materials supplies Nyloil®, a cast nylon sheet with enhanced wear properties and a 25% lower coefficient of friction than standard cast and extruded nylon grades. Nyloil® features an internal lubricant that will not spin out, dry out, or drain out even in the harshest environments. Nyloil® is ideal for forest product equipment parts such as bushings, bearings, and wear pads due to its high strength, corrosion resistance, and internal lubrication.

UHMW features excellent wear resistance and low moisture absorption that make it a reliable material choice for forest product equipment parts like chain guides and sprockets. Specialized grades of UHMW such as Tivar® 88 are designed specifically to promote smooth transportation of bulk materials throughout the production process. Tivar® 88 has a built-in lubricant that helps reduce wear on other equipment components when working with logs, lumber, and other abrasive materials.

HDPE is a dependable solution used by sawmills and paper mills for cutting and preparing wood products. Cutting boards made from HDPE resist moisture, acids, odors, and mildew, which help prevent bacterial growth that can damage wood products. The outstanding weather resistance and long-term durability of HDPE ensure it will last for years working in outdoor applications.
