Glass Filled Nylon Hydraulic Cylinder Rings Provide High Protection at Low Cost

Glass filled nylon is a durable and economic option for applications requiring hydraulic cylinder wear rings. It is suitable for medium to heavy duty applications, particularly for reciprocating piston and rod bearing applications.

These rings are also a great replacement option for Phenolic wear rings, and in some cases, for cast iron rings in certain hydraulic cylinder applications.

The glass filled nylon wear ring offers many benefits and is suitable for a variety of industries.


Glass filled nylon wear rings are most commonly used in the following applications:

  • Mobile Hydraulics
  • Off Highway/Construction Equipment
  • Agricultural Machinery
  • Material Handling


There is a long list of benefits associated with glass filled nylon, including:

  • High Quality Material
  • Cost-Effective
  • Highly Durable
  • Reduces Vibrations
  • Extends Seal Life
  • Protects Components from Dieseling Effect
  • Protects Seal from Particles
  • Limits Flow Erosion Problems
  • Prevents Metal-to-Metal Contact
  • Easy to Install
  • High Bearing Load Capacity over a Broad Range of Temperatures
  • Able to Withstand Heavy Side Loads
  • Able to Withstand High Cycling Speeds
  • Wear Resistant
  • High Compressive Strength Material
  • Able to Work Under High Cylinder Pressures
  • Can be Manufactured to Close Tolerances
  • High Abrasion Resistance
  • Compatible with Hydraulic & Lubricating Oils
    • Glass Filled Nylon Wear Rings should not be used with water-based fluids or where significant water is present due to moisture swelling properties.


If you’re looking for the most cost-effective option for modern hydraulic cylinder wear rings, glass filled nylon may be the right choice for your application!
