processes during manufacture, compared to Cast Nylons, which are in a pre-process liquid state and require only one heat process. This eliminates the stability problems of Extruded Nylons when manufacturing intricate machined parts.
An Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene with superior physical properties. Chemical resistant, impervious to water and has a high impact strength. Lightweight and resistant to low temperatures, with excellent coefficient of friction; its thermal stability makes it ideal for guide rails, gear wheels, pulleys and sprockets.
The lowest coefficient of friction of all solid plastics. Excellent chemical resistance against most solvents and chemicals and good thermal stability. Non combustible, almost nil water absorption and excellent weather resistance. Ideal for chemical plants, electrical components, seals, insulators and chain guides, for use in high temperature applications, ie. ovens.
Polyvinyl Chloride in its unplasticised form is a widely used stock shape Plastic; being low in price, widely resistant to chemical attack, and having mechanical properties, making it suitable for many general engineering applications. Normally available in a grey colour, coloured grades are also available. In addition, special food approved and chlorinated versions are also available.
Applications include change parts, water treatment plant tanks and components, chemical tanks, pipework and lightly stressed mechanical components.
