Some of our list of plastic products is as follows:
PCTFE, or polychlorotrifluoroethylene, is a type of synthetic resin that is moldable and highly resistant to temperature and chemicals. It's widely used in the aerospace, chemical, and electrical industries due to its remarkable properties.
It's a more robust polymer, one step ahead of PTFE regarding durability and mechanical properties. Furthermore, it can maintain its physical properties even in extremely low temperatures, making it an excellent option for applications where cold temperatures are considered.
Applications of PCTFE:
Seals and gaskets
Aerospace parts and components
Moisture barrier in blister packaging
Polyvinylidene fluoride, or PVDF, is a semi-crystalline, high-purity thermoplastic fluoropolymer produced via vinylidene fluoride polymerization. It's also a rigid plastic material that can withstand flame, chemicals, and electricity. It has high mechanical strength, good processability, and piezoelectric and pyroelectric properties.
Due to its resistance to electricity, it's often used as an electrical insulation. Its flame resistance also makes it a good alternative for insulating wire in buildings to prevent the spread of fire in emergencies. It's readily-melt and can be made into parts using injection or compression molding.
Applications of PVDF:
Tubes and fittings
Actuators and sensors
Binder for cathodes
Also known as plexiglass, acrylicis a transparent thermoplastic with similar properties as polycarbonate. It's often used as an alternative to glass due to its impact resistance. Its transparency made it one of the clearest plastics on the market, and it's often used in applications where optical clarity is essential.
It has outstanding strength and stiffness and is easy to fabricate. Acrylic sheets are easy to thermoform and bond well with different adhesives or solvents. Furthermore, its weathering properties make it a superb choice for outdoor applications, and it's also resistant to a wide range of chemicals.
Applications of acrylic:
Drums and containers
Since acrylics come in different variants and colors, it provides versatility and aesthetic qualities. It's a material well-known in almost all industries to support their multiple projects and applications.
This versatile engineering material is naturally transparent and amorphous thermoplastic like acrylics. It's also available in different colors for aesthetic purposes. But its initial state allows for excellent light transmission with the same wavelength as glass. Due to its transparency and high impact resistance, it's used in multiple applications where both properties are essential, such as bulletproof glass.
It melts in extremely high temperatures. But it can be cooled again without predominantly affecting its quality. In addition, it can be easily scratched, even though it's shatter-resistant. But a layer of specialized coating can make it scratch-proof.
Applications of polycarbonate plastic:
Collective safety measures (Machine guards)
High flexibility is another feature of polycarbonate panels, which can be bent at room temperature without breaking or cracking. So it's an excellent choice for prototype applications.
Ultra-High Molecular Weight (UHMW) Polyethylene is a thermoplastic material that offers a well balanced property profile that includes a unique combination of wear and corrosion resistance, a low friction surface, excellent impact strength and FDA compliant composition.
An excellent general purpose material, UHMW is a cost-effective solution for food handling problems. Its natural formulation, but also many of its color variations, meet FDA guidelines for food processing and handling. From food processing to packaging, bulk material handling to pharmaceutical processing, UHMW can improve your business performance. If your process machinery has problems with noise, premature wear, stretched chains, unscheduled downtime or expensive replacements, UHMW solves those problems and your machinery runs longer and smoother.
Applications of UHMW:
Food Processing Equipment
PEEK or polyetheretherketoneis a high-performance thermoplastic with crystalline properties. It has incredible flame resistance, mechanical strength, chemical resistance, moisture uptake, and outstanding dimensional stability.
This engineering material is ideal for applications where thermal, chemical, and combustion properties are critical. Furthermore, it's rigid, tough, and has high tensile strength, so it's used in demanding applications, such as aerospace and semiconductor processing.
Applications of PEEK:
