MC® 907 cast nylon is one of the most widely used and versatile thermoplastic resins. Its combination of physical properties and reasonable price make it a favorite choice for numerous applications. MC® 907 nylons toughness, wear resistance, tensile strength and lubricity make it a good choice for many mechanical machine parts.

MC® 907 nylon has a consistent history of replacing other materials including: metal, brass, bronze, aluminum and rubber. In replacing metal gears in machinery, nylon can be advantageous because of its ability to reduce noise, use less lubrication and increase gear life. Nylon can also be fabricated on most mills with high precision.

MC® 907 cast nylon exhibits all the properties which generally make nylon a superior engineering material: high strength, low friction and wear resistance. However, because of the casting process, part size and thickness are almost unlimited without degradation of the materials internal structure. MC® 907 natural is FDA, USDA and 3-A Dairy compliant. It is off-white in color

  • Star wheels
  • Form tools

Engineering Note:

Nylons can absorb up to 7% (by weight) water under high humidity or submerged in water. This can result in dimensional changes up to 2% and a corresponding reduction of physical properties. Proper design techniques can frequently compensate for this factor.
