Plastic Capabilities

Metal has always been thought of as the go-to material when designing a part that needs to withstand the test of time. This is no longer the case thanks to the benefits of Advanced Engineering Plastics.

Why Choose Plastic?

  • Good corrosion resistance
  • Good electrical and thermal insulation
  • Low co-efficient of friction – some self lubricating
  • Good wear resistance and “silent” running
  • Excellent noise and vibration damping
  • Light in weight (SG from 0.9 to 2.1 -Steel 7 .8, bronze 8.9)
  • Good strength weight ratios at low strain
  • Good impact strength
  • Resilience – tries to return to original shape
