Engineered Plastic Products
Any Application. Every Industry.
ABS (ACRYLONITRILE / BUTADIENE / STYRENE)
ABS is ideal for turning, drilling, sawing, milling, die-cutting, cold stamping, and shearing. This material is easy to glue and paint with non petroleum-based products.
Acetals are thermoplastics with the chemical name “PolyOxyMethylene” (POM). Overall, acetal provides high strength and stiffness, enhanced dimensional stability, low moisture absorption, a low coefficient of friction, good wear and abrasion properties, good chemical resistance, and is easy to machine.
ACRYLIC (PMMA: POLYMETHYL-METHACRYLATE)
Acrylics are thermoplastics that are produced by the polymerization of acrylic esters. Acrylics are easily sawed, drilled, milled, engraved, and finished. They can be readily bent or thermoformed at low temperature. They offer high light transmittance and most acrylics have been UV stabilized for good weatherability. This makes them the best choice for light-transmitting applications.
C PHENOLIC (CANVAS BASE / PHENOLIC RESIN)
Grade C Phenolic is made up of a mixture of phenolic resin and medium weave cotton cloth fabrics. This blend provides good wear resistance, low moisture absorption, and good mechanical strength. However, Grade C Phenolic is not typically recommended for electrical applications.
CE PHENOLIC (CANVAS BASE / PHENOLIC RESIN)
Grade CE Phenolic is made up of a mixture of phenolic resin and medium weave cotton cloth fabrics. This blend provides good wear resistance, low moisture absorption, and good mechanical strength. Grade CE Phenolic’s canvas base makes it stronger and tougher than the paper based phenolics.
CELAZOLE® PBI (POLYBENZIMIDAZOLE)
Celazole® is Dupont’s brand name for the high performance imidized thermoplastic called PBI. It is a very clean material in terms of ionic impurity and does not outgas with the exception of water. This makes Celazole® PBI ideal for semiconductor manufacturers and vacuum chamber applications.
CPVC (CHLORINATED POLYVINYL CHLORIDE)
CPVC belongs to the vinyl family of materials. Vinyls are typically used in pipes and fittings because they offer excellent corrosion and weather resistance, as well as having a high strength to weight ratio. They are also good electrical and thermal insulators.
DELRIN® 150 (HOMO-POLYMER)
The Delrin® 150 acetal homopolymer offers higher mechanical properties than the acetal copolymer, but slightly less chemical resistance. This makes it ideal for small diameter, thin walled, bushings that benefit from the additional strength and rigidity.
DELRIN® AF BLEND (HOMO-POLYMER)
The Delrin® AF Blend is a 2:1 blend of Delrin® AF 100 and Delrin® 150 resins. It is manufactured from the Delrin® resins and then uniformly filled with PTFE fibers. These fibers provide better wear characteristics for Delrin® AF than the unfilled grade.
ERTALYTE® PET-P (POLYETHYLENE TEREPHTHALATE POLYESTER)
Because of its low moisture absorption rate, Ertalyte® PET-P’s mechanical and electrical properties are virtually unaffected by moisture. These properties combined make Ertalyte® PET-P ideal for use in the manufacture of precision mechanical parts.
