Semi-Finished Profiles

The heart of our enterprise is a state-of-the art cast nylon manufacturing facility, designed to service an ever-evolving worldwide demand for cast nylon semi-finished stock-shapes.

Our products are semi-crystalline macromolecular cast polyamides, exhibiting extremely high molecular weights. Each grade of Nylon 6 is produced through an anionic polymerisation mechanism, enabled through a chemical reaction process. We produce materials exhibiting optimum mechanical and physical characteristics such as high mechanical strength, high abrasion resistance, vibration damping and extremely low inherent stress.

Our Services

Semi-finished stock shapes

Our core cast nylon materials are available in plate, rod & tube. Other over 150,000 different variations our production flexibility means you have access to the right material for your requirements.

Material Testing

Placing great importance on the testing of engineering materials, our R&D department and laboratory are responsible for measuring the physical properties and performance characteristics.

Material Development

Through our Research & Development team, we are trusted by our partners to create new grades of material for specialist applications and custom colour formulations.

Material Testing

Viva Nylons employ both in-house and external laboratory testing to identify, characterise and validate material performance.

Types of testing available:

  • In-house material identification is performed for clients including basic material characteristics, melt-point, crystallinity, and material density tests.
  • External characterisation tests performed by an independent consultancy include mechanical, thermal analysis, characterisation, electrical and long-term polymer durability testing.

In addition to this, we can provide a range of supporting documentation for our materials including sample inspection reports, certificates of conformity & certificates of analysis.
