PERFECAST NYLON-6 also called Mono-Cast Nylon-6/ Cast Nylon-6/ Cast Polyamide/ PA-6-G shows a number of advantageous qualities when compared to those of extrusion grades manufactured. PERFECAST NYLON-6 (PA-6-G) offers excellent properties like high strength-to-weight ratio, good chemical and thermal stability and durability.
When compared to molded and extruded nylon 6, cast monomeric nylon 6 has improved physical characteristics that result from its higher degree of molecular weight and crystallinity. It also has higher tensile and compressive strengths, higher moduli of tension and compression, greater high-temperature tolerance, improved solvent resistance, improved dimensional stability, and lower moisture absorption. MC Nylon’s molecular weight can reach 70-100 thousand, which is 3 times of common Nylon 6 or Nylon 66.
These features, combined with low specific weight (1/7th the weight of metals), high corrosion and chemical resistance and ease of processing make for an interesting cast nylon material. But apart from the type specific properties, all polyamides share, independently of their manufacturing process, a great number of basic properties specific to the material. Mono-Cast Nylons are ideal substitutes to ferrous non-ferrous metals.
By means of additives, e.g., liquid/ solid lubricants, heat stabilizers and modifications to the polymer matrix, the typical properties of cast polyamides can be adjusted for specific applications. Thus a tailor-made material can be offered for a wide range of applications.
