Nylacast Exhibit at OTC

11 April 2012

Following a successful show in 2011 Nylacast have the great pleasure of exhibiting at the world renowned Oil & Gas industry event OTC, which will be held in Houston Texas from the 30thof April to the 3rd of May.

Nylacast are once again delighted to be showcasing their world renowned engineering polymer solutions and bespoke components for the Offshore, Oil & Gas industry on stand 2541-D. With manufacturing and machining cast nylons as their core business, Nylacast have specialized in developing and supplying this unique polymer for nearly five decades. Continuous investments in Research & Development allow Nylacast to develop new applications and achieve the most successful alternatives to components made from traditional materials such as metals. Utilizing their state of the art manufacturing facilities and worldwide locations, Nylacast are able to provide customers and clients with bespoke components as well as delivering stable, strong and cost effective technical polymers which are ideal for a large range of applications used within the arduous environments faced within the oil & gas industry, such as thruster nozzles, bushes, bearings, hose pulleys, pipe spacers and many more.

Nylacast engineering polymer components and materials are often recognized by design engineers and specifiers within the Oil & Gas industry as being the perfect solution to the harsh environments and conditions encountered.Nylacast components are self lubricating with a low coefficient of friction, often saving time and money on routine and costly maintenance and servicing. Furthermore they are also wear, abrasion, chemical and corrosion resistant in addition to being lightweight, Nylacast components are typically 1/7th the weight of steel and have 25 times the wear life of phosphor bronze. Nylacasts ISO 29001:2010 Oil & Gas accredited state of the art production and manufacturing facilities and dedicated industry engineers is coupled with an in house R&D testing facility which provides the knowledge and resources to be able to custom formulate materials and chemistry to specific end user needs and requirements.

A number of Nylacasts dedicated industry engineers will be on hand at the show to provide technical information and advice directly to the industry. In addition to their bespoke components Nylacast will also be showcasing their pioneering polymer sheaves at. Nylacast Sheaves allow for a number of significant advantages over steel sheaves, adding great value to businesses and projects. Nylacast sheaves have proven to be extremely effective and beneficial in a number of applications such as Launch & Recovery Systems. Nylacast sheaves are approximately 1/7th the weight of steel sheaves, thus making them easier to handle during installation or replacement, while maintaining load capacity. Wire rope is often a fundamental element of an application and can often wear rather quickly due to the constant pressure between the rope and the sheave. Nylacast sheaves are the perfect solution to this problem, as they allow for a significant longer rope life. As Nylacast materials require no lubrication and have a low co-efficient of friction, the need for routine and costly maintenance is considerably reduced, making Nylacast sheaves cost effective in comparison to cast iron or steel.
