Nylacast's engineered polymer materials replace metal

With over four decades of experience and as pioneers of the original oil filled nylons, Nylacast's range of polymers increasingly replace metal components and continue to create value on a number of applications across a range of industries.

Material selection is vital for any engineer to ensure the most effective engineering materials are used in response to the application needs and requirements. Nylacast polymers save valuable maintenance time and cost and effectively replace traditional metal components such as bronze, steel, cast iron and ceramics, adding value to applications.

Nylacast polymers do not oxidise like metals or alloys and offer excellent wear, corrosion and chemical resistance properties as well as excellent properties for use in salt water; therefore lending themselves to a wide range of industry applications. Generally 1/7th the weight of steel and carrying self-lubricating qualities, Nylacast's engineered polymers lend themselves to an extremely low co-efficient of friction and high impact strength. These advantages help reduce and eliminate maintenance and machine downtime, and therefore save time and money.

With full Research and Development testing facilities and traceability for every product, Nylacast are able to engineer polymer materials for specific application and project needs. Working with the customer from the initial design stages and offering expert knowledge, Nylacast engineers and chemists ensure that the most performance-enhancing materials and components are selected.
