When it comes to constant wear, abuse, stress and durability, a plastic component that is properly designed can often outperform a heavier part made from metal, wood or glass. Plastic parts are found in all sorts of industrial applications ranging from farming and construction equipment to chemical plants to household and backyard renovation tools. Where human contact is concerned, such as in a tool, plastics can offer a range of grips that are both heat-resistant and comfortable to hold for long periods of time. In larger construction equipment, plastic technology allows parts to be lighter in weight allowing for easier use and control.
Whatever your industrial need, consult the experts at Entec Polymers for specific polymer information. Whether you are concerned with heat distortion, creep, water or oxygen barrier, chemical resistance or any other critical factor, our technical representatives can provide quick answers and in many cases data that supports product performance under varying conditions.
For your most rigorous industrial applications, ask how nylons, liquid crystal polymers (LCP), polyphenylene sulfide (PPS), polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), acetal copolymer (POM), polybutene-1 (PB-1), catalloy polypropylene (rTPO), polycarbonates, maleic anhydride grafts (MAH), ionomers, or custom compounds can improve the performance of your parts.
