Our range of amorphous or semi-crystalline engineering thermoplastics are generally suitable for applications up to 120°C. Engineering plastics 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.
Compared to extruded PA6E, cast nylon 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.
NYLON OIL is a lubricant modified cast PA6C which is particularly suitable for applications involving dry running. The uniform distribution of lubricant over the whole cross-section achieved with NYLON OIL guarantees a constant sliding and wear behaviour throughout the whole service life.
Similar to standard PA6C but with added solid lubricant Molybdenum Disulfide. Good UV resistance and improved sliding properties. High surface hardness, high strength, good damping properties. Tough material providing high abrasion resistance. Machines well.
PA6E extruded nylon provides good damping capacity, good impact strength and a high degree of toughness even at low temperatures. Good wear resistance, especially against rough surfaces finishes. Good overall resistance to chemicals.
Low moisture uptake, good fatigue strength and rigidity, easily machined. Good dimensional stability for precision parts with tight tolerances. Good sliding characteristics. Retains impact strength even at low temperatures.
All the characteristics of Acetal POM-C but with added polyethylene (PE) as a solid lubricant for improved sliding properties and abrasion resistance. This material has low water absorption and high dimensional stability.
