To manufacture  PA6 Polyamides, also known as nylons, two methods are available, extrusion and casting,

both producing rod, plate and tube formats.

The extruded polyamide  is a macromolecular semi crystalline thermoplastic obtained by the polymerization of caprolactam. The use of a high viscosity polymer for extrusion allows for a product of excellent mechanical characteristics with a high level of quality.

The production method of cast polyamides  (polymerization of caprolactam directly into the tool) allows the production of profiles that are much larger than standard dimensions, enabling us to make huge rings, very thick plates and blocks.
