The performance properties of engineered plastics are as varied as those of metals and their alloys. Depending on application needs, plastics can be specified for unique attributes such as chemical and corrosion stability, specific weight, dampening ability, machinability, thermal resistance, wear resistance, and more. Likewise there are trade-offs in choosing the right material and grade which will impact performance, lifetime, productivity, and maintenance needs.
Through our knowledge of material science, we can identify the most appropriate material for your application. We understand the subtleties that affect performance such as, low sodium content, annealing, stress relieving, resin grade, and product purity.
Material understanding includes but is not limited to:
- Acetal Copolymers (conductive, dissipative, or antimicrobial)
- PET High Impact (with or without lubricant) and PBT
- Nylon 6/6 (with glass or lubricant)
- Cast Nylon 6 (with stabilizers or fillers)
- Cast Nylon 12
- PEEK (standard and bearing grade)
