Tecast cast nylon, available in a variety of grades, offers a combination of good mechanical properties, excellent bearing and wear characteristics, and the large-size capabilities of the casting process. Its fatigue resistance, and lightweight make Tecast ideal for metal replacement applications, such as bearing, gears, sheaves, and sprockets.
At one-eighth the weight of bronze, Tecast is easier to handle and maintain than metals such as iron, aluminum, brass, and bronze, which it typically replaces in industrial wear applications.
Other materials that Tecast commonly replaces because of its superior performance are laminated phenolics, elastomers and wood.
Tecast has excellent wear and abrasion resistance, resulting in extended component life and lower maintenance cost. Its formulations are readily available in rod, plate, and tube. Nonstandard shapes, such as rings, discs, and blocks can be economically produced in small quantities with short lead times. Custom parts can be cast-to-size or near-net-shape with relatively inexpensive tooling.
Note: Additional fillers available, glass, minerals, metal inserts.
