Shock resistant and robust.

Nyrim rods, plates and finished parts for applications under rough conditions

Nyrim casting is a specialised casting process suitable for small and medium quantities and for semi-finished or moulded parts. The products are highly robust, abrasion-resistant and suitable for applications involving extreme loads. A polymer additive has been added to the PA 6 C base material to create an especially impact-resistant polyamide 6 block copolymer. The material properties can be adjusted depending on the specific application. Composites, insert components and textile reinforcements can also be manufactured. Ensinger uses Nyrim from Brüggemann for TECARIM products.

WHY Ensinger Nyrim?

Highly versatile and resiliant material

Finished parts made of Nyrim offer optimal properties:

  • No brittleness and breakage
  • Outstanding mechanical properties
  • UV resistant as proven in numerous outdoor applications for many years
  • Material properties can be adjusted for specific applications
  • Robust, abrasion resistant parts for extreme loads
  • Can be utilised in place of aluminium and steel parts in certain cases where weight is an issue 
  • Usage temperature: -60 °C to +120 °C

Robust, abrasion-resistant parts for extreme loads

RIM production (reaction injection moulding) is a pressureless moulded casting process offering many advantages:

  • Parts have very low or no internal tensions
  • Combination of different wall thicknesses
  • Parts up to 35 kg
  • Processing with economical aluminium tools allow for series of between 300 - 100,000 pieces
  • Insertion of parts and textile reinforcement are possible
  • Organic sheets or composites can be manufactured using glass or carbon fibres 

Delivery Forms

TECARIM rods are available in diameters between 30 and 180 mm. TECARIM plates can be delivered from 10 to 150 mm thickness.

Producing parts using the RIM process (Reaction Injection Moulding) is a good choice especially when

  • quantities are too high for machining, making such production unprofitable or
  • injection moulding processes cannot be used because walls are too thick or quantities are too low.

Nyrim composites are polymerised in situ. This creates multi-phase materials with a reinforcing layer (carbon or fibreglass) chemically bonded to the matrix during the manufacturing process. This product differs significantly from ex-situ composites, in which the reinforcing layer is bond to the matrix through an additional process (such as infiltration). The in-situ process for Nyrim composites allows for a wide range of different reinforcements for different properties, which are then combined with a high level of impact resistance. These variations are manufactured individually and customer specific.

With Nyrim composites the positive properties of the seperate components can be fully utilized:

  • Modification with elastomere
  • Resistance to low temperatures
  • Weldability
  • High wear resistance
  • High impact resistance
  • Usable as insert for injection moulding

Core Industries

Nyrim moulded parts for machine, equipment and tool construction

The industrial applications of Nyrim moulded parts are diverse: Casting without additional pressure makes it possible to produce different wall thicknesses and components that weigh up to 35 kg. In contrast to injection moulding, Nyrim moulded casting can be used to produce moulded parts with a high weight, thick walls, and quantities of just a few thousand parts.

The mechanical properties offer invaluable advantages for machine and equipment construction. TECARIM moulded parts can be used, for instance, as housing covers for equipment and machinery.

In tool construction, TECARIM offers the advantage of extremely high impact resistance with high mechanical strength to match. The material does not become brittle or break even under drastic deformation.

This combination is used, for instance, in spring relief blocks. These are utilised as spacer blocks between the two halves of a press tool when the tool is not in use.

Nyrim cast parts for winter technologies

Nyrim is always used in winter technologies when a high level of impact resistance is required at below freezing temperatures. Strong mechanical properties are required for safety, for instance, in brake linings for cable railways. In addition, the material is UV resistant (outdoor applications) and resistant to breakage, even during winter at below zero temperatures. Nyrim offers stable properties across a temperature range from -40 °C to +120 °C.

Nyrim moulded parts for transportation, railway technology and commercial or heavy-duty vehicles

Impact resistance, chemical resistance and the ability to withstand low temperatures are useful features in heavy duty or other transportation vehicle. Covers on switch systems, for instance, can stand up to high impact loads occurring suddenly, even at low temperatures. Impacts may occur due to blocks of ice, for instance, which come off of trains at high speeds.

TECARIM is more lightweight and impact resistant – and therefore more break resistant – than steel. These advantages come to light especially in supports for mobile lightweight crane systems.

Application examples

One Part Clamp

cast from TECARIM yellow (modified). It allows the linking of several buckets to a bucket chain.

  • Resistant to salt water
  • Combines the material characteristics of strength with the necessary flexibility of the side spring elements
  • Casted and totally finished in one cycle – therefore no milling or other finishing becomes necessary

Friction pad for chair lift

made from TECARIM black (modified)

  • Good dry running
  • Wear resistant
  • UV resistant
  • Cold resistant

Track pad for track vehicles

made from TECARIM yellow (modified)

  • Low abrasion
  • Excellent toughness
  • Long service life
  • High mechanical load




Roller for baggage transport system on airports

made from TECARIM blue (modified)

  • Good impact strength
  • Good shock absorption

Case study press relief block

Spring relief blocks for heavy tools

made from TECARIM 1500 yellow

More security with spring relief blocks made from TECARIM 1500 yellow

For spring assemblies in heavy tools relief must be provided when the tools are out of use. If the relief elements are accidentally not removed before the tools are taken into operation, the relief blocks made of TECARIM do not break or burst but deform. Thus they offer security for people and tools.
