TECAST® L natural

PA 6 C oil filled

TECAST L is an oil-filled cast nylon type 6 used in applications that require excellent bearing and wear properties, and where external lubrication is difficult or impractical. TECAST L has excellent wear and abrasion resistance, which results in extended component life and lower maintenance cost. TECAST L is also available in yellow and black.
