Material Grades

PA6

The original cast nylon - PA6 is the base grade from which all cast nylon materials are created.

PA6 Moly

PA6 with additional molybdenum disulphide.

Wax Filled Nylon (WFN)

Wax Filled Nylon | PA 6C + wax

Oil Filled Nylon (OFN)

Oil Filled Nylon | PA 6C + blended liquid lubricant

Heat Stabilised (HS)

Heat Stabilised PA6 Cast Nylon

PA6/12

Our Nylon 6 & Nylon 6 co-polymer,  offering excellent dimensional stability and reduced moisture absorption

PA6 Glass Filled

For applications requiring higher compressive strength, our Glass Filled material incorporates hollow glass ovules for outstanding abrasion and temperature resistant material at high loads.

PA6 GF is available in Plate & Rod profiles only.

Nylacast Oilon

The leading Oil Filled Nylon for over 40 years.

Nylacast Nylube

The leading wax nylon since 1989

Polyurethane (PU)

Polyurethane (PU) is an extremely versatile and abrasion-resistant material. Available from Viva in a wide variety of shore hardnesses including 35-95 Shore A & 55-77 Shore D.

PA6 Flame Retardant (FR)

Our PA6 FR grade is phosphorus and halogen-free, featuring an excellent LOI (Limiting Oxygen Index) assisting to prevent or inhibit the outbreak of fire.

Nylacast Aquanyl

Our premium PA612 for unrivalled dimensional stability & moisture absorption. Available through our partnership with Nylacast.

Nylacast Impact

Impact - specifically designed for applications that require high impact resistance and noise reduction capabilities. It works effectively in applications where there is high stress. It also has good mechanical, thermal and chemical resistance properties.

Polyethylene (PE-UHMW)

Polyethylene is well known in the polymer family and is often referred to as PE. It has an extremely low coefficient of friction, good chemical and corrosion resistance with excellent impact strength making it an extremely adaptive thermoplastic material.

POM-C (Acetal)

POM-C otherwise known as Acetal Copolymer features highly crystalline resins, making this material strong and rigid, with a low coefficient of friction in comparison to metals and other plastics. POM-C is also creep resistant and is recommended for applications where dimensional stability is important.

Polypropylene (PP)

Polypropylene (PP) features excellent chemical and acid resistance properties in addition to high impact strength.
