Construction

The construction sector is one of the most demanding industries across the globe. Often projects need to be completed, and handed over on time, or risk a penalty charge. This means that construction equipment needs to be reliable and maintenance-free.

With such pressures to perform, many OEMs of heavy-duty construction equipment such as telehandlers, mobile cranes and to lighter aerial work platforms are converting from traditional metal components, such as steel or bronze to engineered polymers in order to reduce maintenance, increase safety and optimise performance.

The adaptable properties of modified Cast Nylon make our range of materials the ideal solution for numerous applications across in the construction equipment sector as a result of their outstanding sliding properties and high load bearing capabilities.

Self-Lubricating

Eliminate the need, and cost, of external lubricates.

Abrasion Resistant

Combat wear through a low coefficient of friction.

High Load Bearing

Ability to withstand heavy pressures and volumes.
