What is Nolu-S
Nolu-S is a unique compound of UHMW and a solid
lubricant. It drastically reduces the coefficients
of friction while maintaining characteristics of UHMW. Nolu-S has a better thermal conductivity compared to standard UHMW.

Benefits and Features*
• Nolu-S makes very high speeds possible,
especially when running dry.
• Nolu-S has an extremely low coefficient of friction.
• Nolu-S reduces noise and squeaking.
• Nolu-S reduces chain pull.
• Nolu-S extends the life of the chain.
• Nolu-S does not damage or scratch the surface of PET.
• Nolu-S reduces energy consumption.
• Nolu-S is UHMW-PE 1000 with a solid lubricant

and FDA approved.

Plastic Belt Material Definitions

Low Friction Acetal Resin

This material is commonly used in the market and offers an improved coefficient
of friction. Suitable for use in high speed applications.
Color: Light Brown (LF), Dark Grey (LFG),
Blue (LFB) or White (LFW)

This material is FDA (Food and Drug Administra­tion) approved for direct contact with food.

New Generation™
Extra performance PBT with the lowest coefficient of friction in our range,
resulting in medium strength and
optimum wear resistance, along with

reduced plate wear and reduced pitch elongation. Suitable for high speed and dry running applications. NG™ material should
not be exposed to high humidity levels or wet
conditions at temperatures above 140°F. Available
in flat top chain exclusively from System Plast .
Color: Green (NG™ Chain) or Light Grey (NGG Modular Belt)
This material complies with Directive 2002/72/CE of August 6, 2002 related to materials designed for direct contact with food. It also complies with the “Code of Federal Regulation”, published by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).
Note: NGG prefix is used on Modular plastic belt and NG™ prefix is
used on plastic chains. They both are “New Generation ™”material.

NG™ Makes a Difference on
Modular Belts and Chains!

NG™ is an extra performance PBT thermoplastic material developed by System Plast for modular
plastic belts and chains

• Extra performance PBT thermoplastic resin designed for dry running applications
• Large, flat surface for product stability
• Side flexing & straight running configurations
• Low coefficient of friction
• Exceptional corrosion resistance
• Reduced PV (pressure/velocity) limit
• Better sliding properties

NG™ material chain benefits:
• Can often eliminate the need for chain lubri­ cation and the resultant problem of waste water handling
• Average service life is +60%
• Lower power consumption
• Extended wear life, even in extreme conditions
• Low noise, reduced squealing • Increased operating temperature limit to 245°F
• Reduced plate wear and reduced pitch elongation
