Cast-Nylon CN

Cast-Nylon improves the properties of nylon by polymerizing and forming its main base ingredient of nylon monomer in a mold to provide superior features not available in products made through injection molding or extrusion molding (NB, UD, CL, MD and SR grades).

As a flagship engineering plastic offering characteristics such as superior mechanical strength, heat resistance and creep performance, Cast-Nylon is used in a wide range of applications.

Benefits

  • 1. Excellent mechanical strength.
  • 2. Excellent sliding ability under heavy loads.
  • 3. Continuous use temperature of 120°C (NB, UD and MD grades).
  • 4. Many standard sizes, also able for forming large products.
  • 5. Lightweight, therefore easy to cut and great for use in machine components.

Applications

Rollers, wheels, bearings, guides, spacers, pallets, gears, pulleys, slide plates, sieves, gaskets, seals, rack gears, star wheels, timing screws, liners

Caution

  • If using after an extended period of time, please consider the impact of water absorption.
  • May discolor due to water absorption treatment.

Standard Grade

CN-NB Blue
CN-UD Ivory

By improving mechanical strength, a characteristic of Cast-Nylon, and reducing physical degradation under high temperature, it can be used under heavy loads like machinery parts where only metal is used.

High Conductivity Grade

CN-CDH Black

Good electroconductivity and antistatic performance with a volume resistivity of 103-105Ω·m. The composition of the engineering plastic includes a carbon series filler, uniquely reforming the plastic and giving it high mechanical strength and heat resistance. To ensure a stable resistance value, there is no change caused by wear or aging. Excellent for use in precision instruments, manufacturing jigs with electronic components and peripheral parts that are subjected to static electricity and dust.
Products Compliant with the RoHS Directive and Food Sanitation Act

Caution

  • Please refrain from using this product as a part for electronics products.
  • We recommend preliminary tests using a sample if component is to be used for antistatic applications.
  • CN-CDH may split depending on the machining method or conditions, so please choose appropriate machining conditions.
  • In order to comply with food hygiene, please use after boiling in hot water of 100°C for 1.5 hours or longer.
