U PLASTICS

A VITAL ROLE

Our engineering plastics are manufactured to obtain specific mechanical, thermal or chemical properties that make them suitable for a wide range of industrial applications. Unlike ordinary plastics, which are used in ordinary consumer products, our engineering plastics are designed to meet specific performance requirements and are typically used in more specialised applications.

Examples of engineering plastics include polyether ether ketone (PEEK), polyphenylene sulphide (PPS) and polyamide-imide (PAI). These materials offer superior properties such as high strength, heat resistance, chemical resistance, and low friction.

The right plastic for every project

In general, choosing the right engineering plastics for your project requires careful consideration of the specific needs of the project, the properties of each type of plastic, processing requirements and cost. Consult with our R&D on which engineering plastics would best suit your project.

OUR TEAM

likes to go through all steps

This is how we achieve the best result:

Define the specific needs of your project

The first step is to determine the specific needs of your project, such as mechanical, chemical and thermal properties, and any other requirements, such as electrical conductivity or biocompatibility.

Consider the different types of plastics

There are many types of engineering plastics, each with unique properties and characteristics. Some common types of engineering plastics include polyethylene, polypropylene, polyvinyl chloride, polystyrene and polycarbonate.

Evaluate the properties of each type of plastic

Once you have identified the types of plastics that may be suitable for your project, it is important to evaluate their properties, such as strength, stiffness, flexibility and chemical resistance, to determine which will best meet the requirements of your project.

Determine processing requirements

The processing requirements of the plastic can also be an important consideration, as some plastics may require specific processing methods, such as injection moulding or extrusion, to achieve the desired properties and dimensions.

Costs

Finally, it is also important to consider the cost of the plastic, as well as all associated processing and production costs, to ensure the project stays within budget.
