NYCAST® 12 is the only cast nylon 12 material manufactured in North America. With its extremely low moisture absorption, the mechanical properties of NYCAST® 12 remain virtually unaffected in a wide range of environments. NYCAST® 12 offers superior performance design in applications, where dimensional stability, chemical resistance, dielectrics, abrasion resistance and impact strength are important factors. In wet or dry environments, indoor or outdoor, the low deformation and superior fatigue resistance properties of NYCAST® 12 deliver unmatched performance in many high-speed wheel and roller applications.

This material is also well-suited to use for power transmission components in material handling and transportation environments, as well as in structural and enclosure elements in sensitive electronic and manufacturing equipment.

NYCAST® 12 is specially formulated and designed to offer:

  • Very low moisture absorption
  • Superior wear resistance
  • Dimensional stability
  • Exceptional lubrication ability
  • Outstanding mechanical characteristics
  • High impact strength
  • Lower thermal expansion

Typical applications include:

  • Wheels
  • Rollers
  • Bearings and Bushings
  • Gears
  • Valve Seals

Specify NYCAST® 12 for applications in industries such as:

  • Power transmission
  • Amusement Park Rides
  • Valve and Seal Manufacturers
  • Food Processing
  • Marine


Offering improved tensile, compressive and flexural properties over conventional unfilled NYCAST® grades,
NYCAST® GF (Glass Filled)-30% provides increased load bearing characteristics and is the choice in applications where added stiffness, rigidity and dimensional stability are required.

Quality cast nylon - available in your choice of color. CNL produces over 12 colors of NYCAST® type 6 cast nylon. Custom colors are available.
