Engineering Materials

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.

Cast Nylon PA6C

Cast Nylon PA6C

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.

Cast Nylon PA6C Oil Filled

Cast Nylon PA6C Oil Filled

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.
