APPLICATION STORIES Common components, uncommon performance

PLASTIC MATERIAL PROPERTIES Rethink what you know about plastic performance
Wear resistance

Wear resistance

Our wear-resistant plastics outperform metals in load bearing and friction applications and resolve a number of common engineering issues, such as inhibiting mechanical wear and damage, preventing contamination, reducing noise, and extending the mean time between repair.

Dimensionsl stability

Dimensional stability

Even when exposed to high temperatures, moisture, and mechanical stress, our range of dimensionally stable thermoplastics retain their shape and performance integrity, enabling cost-savings when compared to metal components.

Corrosion resistance

Chemical resistance

Our range of chemical-resistant plastics can withstand even the most aggressive environmental conditions or sterilization processes, retaining their mechanical properties without added surface protection.

Plastic material properties - autoclavability


Despite constant exposure to hot water or repeated steam sterilization cycles, our range of autoclavable plastics retain their mechanical properties and dimensions, making them excellent candidates for use in medical devices or operating environments involving steam.

High temperature resistance

High-temperature resistance

For continuous operation at elevated service temperatures, our extensive range of high-heat thermoplastic materials exhibits superior short- and long-term thermal stability, thermal insulation, flame retardancy, and resistance to radiation.

weight reduction

Weight reduction

For all the performance at a fraction of the weight, thermoplastics and composites offer compelling productivity gains and cost savings compared with metals, opening new doors for design freedom.
