Cast Nylon Attributes
JC Finley’s Cast nylon, like nylon in general, are highly resistant to abrasions, impacts, and general wear and tear. Nylon components are chemical and corrosion resistant and boast strength and stability that rivals the rubber and metal they so often replace (typically at a lower cost to the consumer). Cast nylon in particular can be poured into molds of all sizes and shapes without compromising its structural integrity. For this reason, very small gears and other machine parts subject to constant movement are most often a product of cast nylon fabricating. In addition, the various additives available to cast nylon only enhance the material’s strength and durability.
Cast Nylon Description
Cast nylon is one of the most versatile and synthetic thermoplastics on the planet and is used in a wide variety of industrial and consumer applications. Developed prior to WWII by the DuPont chemical company and marketed shortly after the war’s end, cast nylon (also known as nylon type 6, polycaprolactam, or PA6 C) are highly molecular, highly crystalline polymers used in a wide variety of casting applications. Unlike extrusion grade nylon (Nylon 6/6), cast nylon can be poured into casts of any shape and size to create durable and solid components.
In mechanical applications, cast nylon is generally deemed an excellent and cost-effective alternative to metal and rubber components. With a low coefficient of friction, cast nylon components allow for minimal lubrication. Cast nylon is also resistant to chemicals and abrasions unlike more expensive materials. Additives including glass, oil, thermal stabilizers, and even Kevlar can be mixed in to give the final product additional strength and unmatched stability.
Cast nylon fabricators can cut the material into virtually any size or thickness without losing its quality. Because of this, cast nylon is extremely versatile in a range of applications; cast nylon fabrication and cast nylon machining a relatively simple process compared to other plastics. In terms of cast nylon distribution and sales, cast nylon is typically sold in cut-to-size sheets, rods, or tubes in a variety of thicknesses and colors.
