Engineering 185°F - 300°F | Nylon Cast 6 - Premium

TECAST 6PB Impact Modified

Specifically formulated for improved impact resistance for applications in which subject parts are subjected to intermittent or consistent shock loads such as pile driving cushion pads. It is specifically formulated from an impact modified type 6 nylon and combines the excellent strength of nylon with the impact resistance of the modifier. TECAST® 6PB is normally supplied in brilliant OSHA orange color to provide easy identification.

  • Excellent shock load characteristics
  • High energy transmittance
  • Easily identifiable

TECAST® 6PB can be supplied in rods or discs in a variety of diameters up to 22". Other sizes can be supplied on a custom basis.
