Natural PA6 is the base to the other grades of material offered by us. Primary engineering polymer is highly suitable for a wide application of plain bearing Compared to Injection Moulding Nylons, Cast Nylons stand out better with their improved mechanical, thermal and chemical resistance properties. The material is built in with a higher tensile, compressive and impact strength and improved resistance to creep and heat ageing. It is available in Natural Colour (off white). It is made by ionic polymerisation of caprolactam under anhydrous conditions in the presence of strong acids or bases. This is because gravitationally cast nylon 6 does have higher molecular weight and higher crystalinity.

Key benefits:

  • High tensile, compressive and flexural strength
