Cast Nylon polyamides, commonly called nylon type 6, or PA6 C are manufactured in standard stock shapes and cast in the form of sheet, rod and tube. Cast nylon polyamides are highly molecular, highly crystalline polymers. Semi finished nylon type 6 shapes are manufactured using a casting method, whereby the raw material caprolactam polymerises by means of a controlled chemical reaction.
By using additives such as oil, solid lubricants or thermal stabilisers, the typical characteristics of type 6 nylon can be selectively adjusted for certain applications, opening up a custom tailored range of materials to cover a wide application spectrum. Cast Nylon demonstrates even higher crystallinity and better machinability than extruded nylon.
