Quarrying & Mining

Cast nylon materials play an integral role in aggregate and material handling applications. The wide-ranging material attributes of cast nylon contribute to the reliability and safety in conveying and mining equipment components.

When transporting bulk materials it is essential to promote material flow, removing the risk of material build up and equipment wear. Our range of cast nylon materials cope with the demands of the harsh environments and processes within bulk material handling industries through a combination of low friction & high abrasion resistance properties.

Other applications include, thrust and support rollers for rotary dryers, support pulleys and running wheels for overland rope conveyors, wear pads for protection of metal parts in telescoping / reciprocating wear applications and bushes / bearings large vehicles and lifting equipment.

Low Friction

Low coefficient friction qualities make Nylon the ideal replacement for traditional materials in high wear applications.

Abrasion Resistance

Combat wear through a low coefficient of friction.

Impact Resistant

Ability to absorb high impacts and dampen noise.
