Nylon stands out as one of the most extensively utilized and adaptable thermoplastic resins. Its attractive combination of physical attributes and cost-effectiveness positions it as a preferred choice for a wide array of applications. The toughness, wear resistance, tensile strength, and lubricity inherent in nylon make it particularly well-suited for various mechanical machine components.
Over time, nylon has consistently proven itself as a replacement for other materials, including metal, brass, bronze, aluminum, and rubber. In machinery, substituting metal gears with nylon can yield advantages such as noise reduction, reduced need for lubrication, and prolonged gear life. Additionally, nylon’s lighter weight—only 1/7th that of bronze—contributes to its appeal. Moreover, the fabrication of nylon on most mills is achievable with high precision.
Cast Nylon, specifically, showcases all the superior engineering qualities associated with nylon: high strength, low friction, and wear resistance. Notably, the casting process allows for virtually unlimited part size and thickness without compromising the internal structure of the material. Importantly, Cast Nylon meets FDA standards, further enhancing its suitability for various applications.
