As one of the worlds leading manufacturer of engineering polymers, Nylacast continually consult material specifiers, designers and manufacturers on turning to engineering polymers to replace traditional engineering materials such as steel, cast iron, bronze and ceramics.
Why choose plastics over traditional metals?
This choice is often based on improved performance and cost reduction, but further advantages include:
- Increased component life
- Zero corrosion
- Weight reduction
- Improved wear-performance/friction coefficient
- Noise dampening
- Electrical and thermal insulation
- Internal lubrication
- Non-stick characteristics
- Abrasion resistance
- Dimensional stability
- Chemical resistance
- Ease of machining
- Self Lubricating
- Self Memory
The above characteristics make engineering plastics the logical and cost-effective choice for a range of applications including heavy-wear components, food processing components and semi conductor processing equipment.
