Engineering Polymers: The Secret Ingredient in Food Manufacturing Excellence

Building Trust and Confidence in Food Production with Nylacast

The food manufacturing industry encounters diverse challenges that impact its operations, sustainability, and expansion. These challenges encompass escalating costs, dynamic consumer preferences, concerns about food safety, and considerations regarding environmental impact.

Nylacast addresses these needs by providing robust support to food processing facilities transporting raw materials and finished products throughout the production line.

Engineering Polymers are selected for application in food manufacturing equipment as they are versatile and adaptable, with a vast range of polymers available with FDA approval. Our clients rely on us to advise on the best Polymers to enhance operational efficiencies, reduce the necessity for maintenance and downtime, and prioritise the safety of consumer food products.


Industry Solutions

Our comprehensive technical support in design and material selection processes further emphasises our commitment to the industry.

Food-Grade Ratings Material grades approved by the FDA   
Wear Reduction Low friction materials technology results in high resistance to wear and abrasion when in application.  
Temperature Compatibility Suitable for both low and high-temperature applications   
Visual Detection Blue visually detectable material  
Eliminate Slip Stick Effects

Our material technology prevents material sticking to overcome friction from an applied force 

Decreased Noise Emissions Lower coefficient of friction decreases noise emissions.  
Reduced Downtime Self-lubrication and corrosion resistance results in increased efficiency through lower whole life costs and longer machine running times.
