Compared to extruded Nylons, cast Nylons like the Cast Nylon 6 Rod have a very high molecular weight, between 500,000 and 1,000,000 being one of the factors separating cast Nylon from the other types of Nylons. 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 manufacture, the molecular weight is not reduced. Extruded Nylons are reprocessed from a polymer in granular form and require two heat processes during manufacture, compared to cast Nylons which are a form of chemical liquid, requiring only one heat process. This eliminates the stability problems when manufacturing intricate machined parts.
