Sealing with Nylon

Valves and seals made of nylon consistently outperform their rubber and metal counterparts. They last longer, can be pre-coloured (no painting) and can take the same amount of pressure (and then some) of components made of other materials. Due to its unique chemical composition, nylon is self-lubricating and won't dry out like rubber seals. Plus,…

Better in the Sun

One of the reasons many cast nylon products are so flexible in their useage is that they are UV resistant, making them ideal for indoor and outdoor applications. The durability and natural lubrication has made cast nylon ideal for replacing rubber and metal parts that wear out quickly like bearings, sprockets, wheels and chain guides,…

Keep Cranes Stable and Crews Safe

Outrigger pads are essential when working with heavy duty cranes or equipment on any surface. Not only do outrigger pads need to provide stability for the protection of surfaces and maintaining a level vehicle, they also need to be lightweight, portable and have an excellent crush rating to withstand the pressure of outriggers and significant…

Nylatech IRG Takes A Beating

Nylatech IRG retains the basic physical properties of nylon 6, but has increased impact resistance. Some of the most common applications are, Pile driving pads Vibration dampeners Mechanical stop applications High impact applications Since traditional cast nylon 6 materials are semi-crystalline, they are susceptible to cracking and breaking when subjected to high impact loads especially…

Nylatech Mining Solutions

Nylatech provides many wear resistant components to the mining industry that reduce maintenance and extend the life of equipment. Materials are available that contain solid lubricant additives, have high pressure-velocity (PV) values, and excellent wear resistance. In many applications, the high wear resistance can be achieved without start-up or running lubrication. These materials also reduce…
