Cast Nylon for the Construction Industry

Nylatech - Blog - socialInnovation and adaptability drive the world forward. We’ve been working with the world’s leading technical and design experts to develop cast nylon parts for many industries, including construction. From these partnerships, we have developed long-lasting plastic alternatives to more traditional metal construction materials.

The construction industry uses many tools and machines. They often work on tight deadlines and minimizing equipment downtime is crucial for businesses in the industry to make money. That’s why many construction companies and equipment manufacturers are turning to cast nylon parts, rather than metal alternatives because these plastics have qualities that make them last longer before needing to be replaced.

Cast nylon is a lightweight plastic that works well in this high-performance industry because of its:

  • exceptional resistance to wear and abrasion,
  • high impact strength,
  • self-lubricating qualities,
  • insulating properties,
  • resistance to corrosion and chemicals,
  • low co-efficient of friction, and
  • high visibility and colors for increased safety.

The possibilities for creating parts using cast nylon are nearly endless, but here is a small taste of the parts we’ve made for the construction industry:

  • Sheaves & Pulleys
  • Bushings
  • Spacers
  • Pipe clamps
  • Sprockets
  • Bearing blocks
  • Bearing housings
  • Chain guides
  • Gears
  • Wear strips
  • Wear pads
  • Scrapers
  • Bespoke components
  • Boom pads
  • Slew rings
  • Lever
  • Skate rollers
  • Stoppers
  • Outrigger pads
