Introducing Nylatron® 66 SA FST from Port Plastics, a pioneering engineering plastic tailored for the aerospace and defense industry. As the first of its kind available in semi-finished shapes, Nylatron® 66 SA FST breaks new ground in material science, combining fire, smoke, and toxicity (FST) retardant capabilities with exceptional durability and performance.

Certified to meet the rigorous Federal Aviation Regulations FAR 25.853, Nylatron® 66 SA FST sets a new standard for safety and reliability in aircraft interior applications. Its ability to withstand temperatures up to 175ºC and its flame retardant properties make it the ideal choice for replacing metal parts and other high-performance polymers traditionally used in the aerospace sector.

  • FIRE SAFETY CERTIFIED: Nylatron® 66 SA FST is JAR/FAR 25.853 compliant, offering flame, smoke, and toxicity retardant capabilities essential for aircraft interior applications.
  • EXTREME TEMPERATURE RESISTANCE: Withstands extreme temperatures up to 175ºC, making it suitable for a wide range of aerospace applications, from brackets to duct seals.
  • COST-EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVE: A commercially attractive solution, offering a beneficial cost-performance ratio compared to traditional metal parts or high-performance polymers.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT SOLUTION: Provides a 60% weight saving compared to aluminum, enhancing fuel efficiency and payload capacity in aerospace designs.
  • LOW NOISE DEVELOPMENT: Engineered for very low noise development, contributing to a quieter cabin environment and improving passenger comfort.
  • EASY TO MACHINE: Its machinability allows for the easy production of semi-finished shapes (rods and sheets), facilitating quick customization for specific applications.
  • SURFACE FRIENDLY: Wear-friendly to mating surfaces, reducing maintenance requirements and extending the lifespan of both the Nylatron® part and its counterface.

Beyond its technical merits, Nylatron® 66 SA FST stands out for its significant weight savings—60% lighter than aluminum—offering substantial benefits in terms of fuel efficiency and payload capacity. Moreover, its low noise development enhances passenger comfort, while its ease of machinability and wear-friendly nature to mating surfaces ensure it is not only cost-effective but also durable and maintenance-friendly.
