Advancing Quarrying & Mining: Nylacast's Engineered Impact

Enhancing your technology with Engineering Polymer Solutions

The equipment used within the quarrying and mining industry has to endure harsh working conditions. Therefore, all equipment needs to be durable, reliable, and able to perform efficiently and meet demands.

We work with many leading OEMs building quarrying and mining equipment for earth moving, extraction and material movement. The technology we support includes but is not limited to earthmoving, crushers, shredders, and conveyors.

We know how vital equipment performance is for the end user and work with OEM clients on projects to reduce equipment weight while augmenting load-handling capabilities. Enhance operational efficiency, maintain safety standards, and meet sustainability targets. Nylacast is committed to application consultancy and material innovation to support the industry's need to reduce maintenance, minimise downtime, and extend the lifecycle of machinery and equipment.


Industry Solutions

Nylacast provides comprehensive technical support, from design and material selection to custom engineering solutions, ensuring optimal performance and longevity for your machinery.

Cost Saving Lower whole life costs are achieved in addition to increased efficiency through reduced frictional losses and lower power requirements.  
Maintenance Reduction Self-lubrication and corrosion resistance results in increased efficiency through lower whole life costs and longer machine running times.  
Low Weight Nylacast Engineered Products are typically 1/7th the weight of an equivalent steel product, helping to reduce overall equipment weight.  
Corrosion Resistance Corrosion resistant materials technology protects against the arduous environments.  
Wear Reduction Low friction materials technology results in high resistance to wear and abrasion when in application.  
Self Lubrication Nylacast Oilon and Nylube materials have lubricants locked within the material structure for maintenance free dry lifetime running.  
Increased Safety Low weight results in lighter loads being handled by personnel during installation and servicing, eliminating the need for lifting equipment.  
Custom Solutions Engineered products custom developed for specific application need from initial chemistry to end product.

Problems we solve

  • Drum Support Roller

Case Study: Enhancing Application Performance

Equipment: Asphalt Plant

Industry: Quarrying & Mining

Original Material: Cast Iron

New Material: Nylacast Aquanyl 612 Roller


Elevated levels of component deterioration, vibration, noise and safety considerations during assembly and lack of ease of handling.


Nylacast’s advanced copolymer Aquanyl 612.

A solution that enhanced the roller's wear life and impact strength. The material's outstanding damping properties reduce noise, while simultaneously reducing weight to 1/7th of the weight of cast iron. Collectively, these attributes ensured that the Drum Support Roller outperformed the Cast Iron version, contributing to improved performance and safety.
