TECAST L yellow

PA 6 C oil filled

TECAST L is a cast nylon polyamide modified with a special oil lubricant, which is particularly suitable for sliding applications, and in dry running conditions. Homogenous distribution of the lubricant ensures consistent sliding and abrasion behaviour over the entire service life of the part. Particularly notable for this product is its low stick slip susceptibility and a very low sliding wear rate. This TECAST L PA cast modification is also available in natural and black.
