Increasing performance with Nylacast Polymers

Nylacast polymers are proven to increase product performance, efficiency and safety.

In a world full of innovation and technology developments on a regular basis, the selection of materials available to engineers grows from strength to strength.With materials specialising in different areas, able to perform to specific and unique requirements.With this in mind it is often a second nature to over specify material requirements before fully investigating the range of materials able to easily accommodate the application needs.

Nylacast Polymers are renowned worldwide for being a very versatile, high performing material for many applications across key industries.Being an engineering polymer it does have its limitations, predominantly on temperature range and loads endured.However it is still a material which can accommodate the many needs of an application.

With an ability to perform in temperatures from -40oC to +160oC Nylacasts range of polymers derive from a cast nylon PA 6, this provides dimensionally stable, tough materials free of any internal stresses or movement.

Nylacast Polymers are also lightweight, typically 1/7th the weight of steel, this coupled with other advantageous characteristics allows for the simple replacement of small and large metal components with relative ease of lifting and lighter loads on the application overall.

Maintenance is often a talk of topic when it comes to engineering applications, with self lubrication properties stemming from both solid and liquid oil filled grades of materials, Nylacast polymers require little or no maintenance, and ultimately machine downtime, helping to significantly increase productivity and efficiency.In fact, Nylacast Nylube has a friction coefficient as low as 0.08, making it a supreme wear resistant grade of material unmatchable in industry.

Due to being a versitile material, capable of meeting many application needs, Nylacast Polymers are not as expensive as highly engineered plastics, but can still undertake many of the same tasks required.
