ABS

ABS—a combination of acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene resins—maintains durability through a broad range of temperatures. These plastics are highly versatile, bond well using either adhesive or solvent cement and can be painted, screen-printed and chrome-plated. They are also excellent for vacuum and pressure forming.

Acetal

Acetal has a low coefficient of friction, high strength, and low moisture absorption and is easily machined. It is excellent for applications that require close-tolerance mechanical parts, bearing characteristics or FDA compliance such as food processing machinery. Available in homopolymer and copolymer formulations.

Phenolics & Industrial Laminates

Among the oldest plastics on the market, phenolics are thermoset plastics, meaning they cannot be altered by heat. They are typically made from a combination of resins and fillers such as paper, linen and canvas, have good electrical and mechanical properties and are resistant to heat, flame and chemicals.

Polyethylenes

Polyethylenes are highly versatile, easy to cut and machine, have excellent chemical resistance, good electrical insulating properties, minimal moisture absorption and a low coefficient of friction. Some formulations can withstand temperatures ranging from minus 40 to over 200ºF.

Learn More

Polypropylene

Polypropylene has excellent chemical resistance and is strong but lightweight. It is easy to machine or fabricate and can be bonded using a variety of plastic welding techniques. It is also FDA-compliant and can be used in food processing environments.

PTFE

PTFE, often used in cookware coating, has become a household name for its slick, nonstick qualities. As an industrial material, PTFE has exceptional chemical resistance, high- and low-temperature durability, a low coefficient of friction and superb insulating qualities.

Learn More

PVC

Also referred to as polyvinyl chloride, PVC is known for chemical resistance, low moisture absorption, dimensional stability, mechanical strength and self-extinguishing fire resistance. Available in sheet, rod and tube. Sheet and tubing can be rigid or flexible, depending on the application.
