Custom Plastic Parts
Properties of Plastic
ABS – Scratch resistant, great for its cosmetic value.
ACETAL – It is compared to some metals due to its stability, impact resistance, and strength.
ACRYLIC – Very durable and lightweight with great clarity. Good for displays and other visual applications.
CPVC – Is a thermoplastic produced by chlorination of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin.
DELRIN – It is a great all-purpose plastic, very versatile and economical.
ERTALYTE® – Great choice for parts requiring a close tolerance.
G-10 – Great chemical and moisture resistance, excellent insulating and electrical properties, and very high strength composite.
NORYL – Is a plastic developed by General Electric, can be used in electronics, coating, and machinery applications.
NYLON – Excellent abrasion and chemical resistant. Easy to the machine.
PEEK – It has a high tensile strength and it has replaced stainless steel in some instances due to its great performance, reliability and low cost.
PHENOLIC – Very light weight, extremely durable plastic, and moisture resistant.
POLYCARBONATE – Virtually unbreakable, transparent glazing material.
UHMW – Impact and abrasion resistant, very affordable.
Although plastics are often roughly on par with metals in cost per weight, plastics are substantially less expensive by volume. That means the material cost will be less if the material strength of plastic is sufficient for the application.
