Road, Rail & Transport
For over four decades Nylacast have been pioneering polymer solutions in aid of significantly enhancing the performance, efficiency and safety of many applications and operations in the Road, Rail and Transport industry. Ranging from critical components for motor vehicles, railways and aeroplanes, through to unique engineering solutions created for the construction of transport infrastructure including tunnels, bridges and roads.
Dedicated to customer satisfaction through delivery of full engineering solutions. Nylacast works with all levels of the supply chain and at every stage, from concept design to solution.
Integration with our full R&D laboratory allows development of both engineered designs and engineered polymers bespoke to the application, environment and conditions.
Typically the use of engineered polymers results in lower whole life costs, less maintenance and longer life. In addition carefully chosen polymers will weigh less, wear less, and deliver better performance.
Working in partnership with clients to develop the appropriate solution, with Engineers, Chemists, Designers, and Manufacturing, Nylacast is best placed to offer a full service from advice to components.
