Engineering Plastics

engineering-plastic

Engineering plastics are a group of plastic materials that have better mechanical and/or thermal properties than the more widely used commodity plastics (such as polystyrene, PVC, polypropylene and polyethylene).

Description

The term usually refers to thermoplastic materials rather than thermosetting ones. Examples of engineering plastics include acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), used for car bumpers, dashboard trim and Lego bricks; polycarbonates, used in motorcycle helmets; and polyamides (nylons), used for skis and ski boots.Because of their weight/strength and other properties, engineering plastics are much easier to manufacture, especially in complicated shapes.

  • Each engineering plastics usually has a unique combination of properties that may make it the material of choice for some application. For example, polycarbonates are highly resistant to impact, while polyamides are highly resistant to abrasion. Other properties exhibited by various grades of engineering plastics include heat resistance, mechanical strength, rigidity, chemical stability and fire safety

We have the following Engineering Plastic grades which are extensively used in Medical, Aerospace, Oil & Gas, Automobile & General Industry

Acetal POM C, Radel, Poly Propylux, PEEK , Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE / UHMW)
