Any Application. Every Industry.

  • ACETAL (CO-POLYMER)

    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.

  • HDPE (HIGH DENSITY POLYETHYLENE)

    HDPE offers excellent impact resistance, is lightweight, has low moisture absorption, and has high tensile strength. It is also non-toxic, non-staining, and meets FDA and USDA certification. This makes HDPE ideal for food processing.

  • POLYPROPYLENE (CO-POLYMER) – PPC

    Polypropylene copolymer is a little bit softer and more pliable than the homopolymer but has better impact strength and is more durable. It is also more stress crack resistant and is tougher at lower temperatures. It can run in the temperature range -20º to 180º F. PPC is very versatile and inexpensive. Its lower rigidity is ideal for use in automotive tanks to prevent cracking from road vibration, and orthotic devices.

  • POLYPROPYLENE (HOMOPOLYMER) – PPH

    Polypropylene homopolymer is the most utilized polypropylene. PPH is more rigid and stronger than the copolymer. It can run in the temperature range 30º to 180º F. It has good weldibility, has high performance in thermoforming, has good chemical resistance, and is also USDA, FDA, NSF, and 3-A Dairy compliant in the natural color. 

  • PTFE (POLYTETRAFLUOROETHYLENE)

    PTFE is an abbreviation for PolyTetraFluoroEthylene. This material belongs to the fluorocarbon family. It is known to be the most chemically resistant plastic available and has the lowest coefficient of friction of all solid plastic material.

  • RULON® (FILLED PTFE)

    Rulon® LR is the most widely used grade of Rulon®. It offers high wear resistance, low friction, good electrical properties, and chemical inertness. It can be bonded to nearly any surface to provide wear resistance and reduce friction. This makes Rulon® LR a great material for sleeves and flange or thrust bearings.

  • RULON® AR (FILLED PTFE) – MAROON

    Rulon® AR has fillers that are ceramic in nature. This grade offers the best combination of flexibility (more flexible than Rulon® LR) and load carrying properties. It also has high wear resistance, low friction, good electrically insulative properties, and universal chemical inertness. It is commonly used for seals, piston cups, and some bearings. 

  • RULON® J (FILLED PTFE) – LIGHT BROWN

    Rulon® J is an all-polymeic reinforced grade of PTFE. It runs exceptionally well against soft mating surfaces such as stainless steel, aluminum, brass, and other plastics. It provides the lowest coefficient of friction of the Rulon® grades as well as good wear and abrasion resistance. It is well suited for use in bearing and seal applications, but not for use in alkaline or oxidizing acid solutions.

  • RULON® LR (FILLED PTFE) – MAROON

    Rulon® LR is the most widely used grade of Rulon®. It offers high wear resistance, low friction, good electrical properties, and chemical inertness. It can be bonded to nearly any surface to provide wear resistance and reduce friction. This makes Rulon® LR a great material for sleeves and flange or thrust bearings.

  • UHMW (ULTRA-HIGH MOLECULAR WEIGHT POLYETHYLENE)

    UHMW is a thermoplastic that belongs to the polyolefin group of material. Molecular density characterizes polyethylene, with UHMW being the most dense with a molecular weight of 3.1 million or higher. UHMW is simple to machine. UHMW is light weight, has no moisture absorption, has high tensile and impact strength, is shatter resistant, is long wearing, abrasion and corrosion resistant, is self-lubricating, and has excellent chemical resistance.
