Nylon, which comes in different forms, is one of the most widely used engineering thermoplastics due to its versatility. Compared to extruded Nylons, the cast nylon 6 sheet has a very high molecular weight, between 500,000 and 1,000,000, which is one of the factors differentiating cast Nylon from other types of Nylons as well as the low cost of the material.
The casting method allows a so-called cross linking to occur throughout the material during polymerisation, giving cast Nylon its wear resistance and toughness characteristics. As a result of the lower temperatures used in cast Nylon manufacturing, the molecular weight is not reduced. Extruded Nylons are reprocessed from a polymer in granular form and require two heat processes during manufacturing, compared to cast Nylons which are a form of chemical liquid, requiring only one heat process. This eliminates the stability problems which arise when manufacturing intricate machined parts.
