McNeall Plastic is an Australian company which has over 35 years of expertise in supplying engineering grade plastic products. McNeall Plastic supplies AustLon which is a high grade engineering plastic. The AustLon engineering grade plastic supplied by McNeall Plastic is a monomer cast nylon produced by a unique process known as activated anionic adiabatic polymerisation. This method of nylon production results in a highly crystalline engineering plastic which is tougher and wear resistant engineering plastic.
The AustLon engineering plastic can be highly useful where issues stemming from abrasive wear, impact strength, bearing strength, noise, weight and corrosion have been difficult to resolve. AustLon is a very popular product and can be used as a practical alternative in applications where metals have traditionally been used. AustLon supplied by McNeall Plastic can be used as a replacement to metal components including bushes, sheaves, rollers and wear pads and many more.
McNeall Plastic’s AustLon is light weighted and offers extremely good wear resistance, high tensile strength and high modulus of elasticity compared to other engineering plastics. Some of the other advantages of AustLon include high impact resistance, excellent vibration resistance, resistance to brittleness and deterioration, high heat distortion temperature and so on.
