Natural Nylon 6 Sheets - Cast


Cast Nylon 6 has improved characteristics over the extruded alternative.

Cast Nylon 6 is made by pouring the polymer into a sheet mould.  This makes Cast Nylon 6 a more stable and easier to machine than Extruded Nylon 6. The downside is the thickness tolerance is greater.

Cast nylon 6 offers a  higher strength, stiffness, hardness and an improved operating temperature of 0°C to +90°C. Cast Nylon 6 is food compliant.

What are the differences between Nylon 6 and Nylon 6.6?
Nylon 6.6 has a 6% higher operating temperature, is 13% harder, 10% more rigid and has a tensile strength that is 8% greater. Nylon 6 on the other hand has a greater size range but the main difference is it can be around 30% cheaper
 
What is the operating temperatures of nylon 6?
100 degrees centigrade long term; 160 degrees centigrade short term. Long term typically means between 5,000 and 20,000 hours operating at this temperature without losing more than 50% of its performance. Short term typically means upto 2 hours at any one time.
