ANNOUNCEMENT: Brand Change Within the NYLATRON® PA6 Group of Products

Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products (Quadrant EPP) announces a brand change within its Nylatron® product family effective immediately: Formerly known Nylatron® LFG now becomes Nylatron® SLG-FDA PA6.
Quadrant’s well-established Nylatron® LFG brand (“Lubricated Food Grade”) will continue under the new Nylatron® SLG-FDA PA6 (“Self-Lubricated Grade”) product name in North America.
The change is based on the increasingly frequent confusion concerning the Quadrant “Food Grade” group of products and global compliance. This group, which has meanwhile become well-known under the abbreviation “FG”, has been specifically developed to meet the requirements of the USFDA (United States Food & Drug Administration) for food contact. Nylatron SLG-FDA is clearly branded to remove doubt of compliance. We feel this is critical at Quadrant, as regional and global compliance continues to evolve and become more stringent and complex.
This is solely a name change and will not affect the property, color, formula or performance of Nylatron SLG-FDA PA6.
