Cast Nylon

Cast Nylon offers one of the largest range of sizes and custom shapes of any thermoplastic. Nylon Castings are available in rods, tubes and sheets. 

Cast Nylon  has significantly greater heat deflection temperature, better solvent resistance, better hydroscopic characteristics, and better dimensional stability than extruded Nylon. In addition, a large variety of dry, solid, and oil base fillers can be added to make products better suited for more challenging applications. 

Like other Nylons, Cast Nylon is not suggested for extremely wet applications. Moisture can cause Cast Nylon to enlarge to as much as 5% in fully immersed applications.
