Breaking New Ground in Resistance, Toughness, Dimensional Stability
Lighter weight plastics do not mean reduced strength. Thermoplastics do not have the strength of most metals, but they compensate in weight reduction, corrosion resistance, and design flexibility.
Advanced engineered plastics have been introduced with more chemical and wear resistance, higher modulus, lower coefficient of thermal expansion than standard mechanical grades. The advanced products are coupled with glass & metal fibers which yield higher levels of structural strength.
All Mechanical Plastics offer outstanding wear and abrasion resistance providing an ideal means of noise reduction between parts. Contact us for information on these amazing products.
Seven Questions for Application Qualification
1. Operating Temperature
2. Tensile and/or Load Requirements
3. Application Environment ei: chemicals, moisture, ultra-violet
4. Specific characteristics required: eletrical, insulation, dissapation,
finish, or tolerences
5. Special Code Requirements - FDA, USDA, ASTM, UL
6. Is there a particular problem the plastic will solve?
Corrision, weight reduction, code requirements, wear resistance, or
7. What is the cost motivation? Longer life, down time?
Bearings, bushings, rollers, wear rings, seals, wheels, gears, plungers, pump components, fittings,valves & valve seas, manifolds, can mandrels, electrical insulators, spacers, slide panels, pipe systems, lamp housings, parts for the dental industry, chemical tanks, acme nuts, toys.
Ideal for parts which come in contact with aggressive materials (machinery building industry), the lining of tanks, pumps, flanges, fittings and parts. For more information contact us.
Determine the Part Requirements
Is it a bearing wear application or a structural one?
How much friction will the part take?
What is the typical and extreme heat requirement?
What chemicals impact the application during runtime and cleaning?
Will there be a need for high purity fluid handling?
Will it part need radiation resistance?
