Industry

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.

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.

Recommended Materials

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.

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.
