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

TECAST T Blue Cast Nylon 6

This thermally stable blue colored cast nylon type 6 exhibits properties similar to TECAST® T Natural and offers a good balance of strength and toughness. The material has good wear and abrasion resistance and offers a good mix of mechanical properties.

  • Good bearing and wear resistance
  • Extends component life and can reduce maintenance costs
  • Good mechanical strength
  • Toughness
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Excellent noise dampening ability

TECAST® T Blue provides durability and economy in a wide range of industrial wear applications such as bushings, bearings, thrust washers, wear pads, sheaves, rollers, gears and sprockets. It is ideal for construction and farm equipment, amusement park rides, pulp and paper processing and other industrial equipment.
