Cast Nylon

Cast Nylon is a thermoplastic material, that is made with anionic block polymerization. This plastic product bases on the raw material “Caprolactam”. By adding the activator and catalyst to the monomer caprolactam, a chemical reaction takes place – the polymerization. A physical process takes place at the same time -the crystallisation. The result is a highly molecular and highly crystalline nylon.

Due to the non-pressure manufacturing process almost no internal stress arises. This allows extensive possibilities of shaping.

Nylon is one of the most versatile construction materials and is today successfully used in many areas such as a substitute for aluminum, bronze or steel.

  • Delivery pipes for hydraulic transport of solids like sand, gravel and dredging technology (JULON-Tubesystem)

Depending on the application, the already good material characteristics of nylon can be optimized by modification of the standard material.These include the addition of oils, MOS2, heat or thermal aging stabilizers, and additives for improving the impact resistance.
