Cast Nylon sheets are machinable, wear-resistant, and have higher heat deflection, better solvent resistance, and better hydroscopic characteristics than extruded nylon 6/6 sheets. They are also easier to machine and offer better dimensional stability than standard-grade nylon. They have a slippery face that reduces friction, and are commonly used to make gears, sprockets, and wear strips. The resulting material is strong, tough, and has excellent wear resistance --- up to 20 times that of standard nylon.
