Engineering Materials

Our range of amorphous or semi-crystalline engineering thermoplastics are generally suitable for applications up to 120°C. Engineering plastic materials tend to be of medium cost, with moderate temperature resistance, mid-range strength, and exhibit good impact and chemical resistance. Our selection encompasses cast and extruded Nylons PA6 and PA66, Acetal POM, PBT, PET and Polycarbonates. Additionally, modified grades of all materials are available.

Cast Nylon PA6C

Cast nylon, compared to extruded nylon PA6E, has better physical properties such as higher tensile strength, maximum stiffness and hardness, better wear resistance, lower moisture absorption and better dimensional stability. It particularly suits the production of large parts and thick wall sections.

Cast Nylon PA6C Oil Filled

Oil filled nylon is a lubricant modified cast PA6C, particularly suitable for applications involving dry running. The uniform distribution of lubricant over the whole cross-section achieved with oil filled nylon guarantees a constant sliding and wear behaviour throughout the whole service life.
