PVC Rigid Sheets & Rods / PVC Flexible Sheets

PVC provides excellent performance at an economical price. With excellent chemical resistance, even to strong acids and alkalies, combined with dimensional stability and low water absorption and weather resistance, PVC has found widespread use in fluid handling applications. PVC does not however possess good heat resistance and wear properties.

Polypropylene Sheets & Rods / Polyethylene Sheets & Rods

Polypropylene is an economical, lightweight material that possesses a good balance of properties. Polypropylene has excellent chemical resistance and operates safely at temperatures up to 180°F. It also possesses high surface hardness and superior abrasion resistance. Polypropylene is ideal for applications such as: Tanks & Vessels, Tank linings, Valves, Pumps, and various parts exposed to chemicals.

Acetal

Acetal copolymer shapes provide excellent mechanical and bearing properties, in addition to, dimensional stability, stiffness and low water absorption. Acetal is resistant to most inorganic solvents and is widely used in industrial applications for bearings, bushings, rollers, gears, and pulleys.

Polycarbonate Sheets

Machine Grade Polycarbonate combines outstanding mechanical strength and stiffness with exceptional dielectric properties and thermal performance. Polycarbonate can be easily machined to a high surface finish and provides optical clarity with light transmission of over 88%. The material also has a service temperature of up to 250°F.

Cast Nylon Sheets & Rods

Nylon® combines excellent wear and impact properties while maintaining superior heat resistance when compared to acetal. Nylon®, however, has a higher water absorption rate than acetal, therefore, it is less suitable to wet and humid applications. It should not be used in contact with strong acids, organic solvents or sunlight.

Nylon®  is a registered trademark of E.I. DuPont de Nemours.

General Description & Application

Product/Name/Description Key Characteristics
Cast Polyamides (Nylon) PA6C
Cast nylons are generally accepted as the primary engineering polymer, suitable for virtually any plain bearing application. By varying the conditions of polymerisation the mechanical properties of cast nylons may be altered to suit specific applications, and the performance of the basic polymer can be enhanced with the addition of various additives, filter, lubricants. * Unequalled formulation options and profile range * Excellent mechanical, thermal and chemical resistance * Excellent PV and local bearing capabilities * Excellent wear and abrasion resistance * Good dimensional stability, largely fee from internal stresses

 

Product/Name/Description Key Characteristics
Extruded Polyamides (Nylon) PA 6E/66E
Polyamides, commonly referred to as nylons, are macromolecular, partially cystalline thermoplastics. Their physical properties are mainly determined by the composition and structure of their molecular chains. Their combined strengths and characteristic position them as obvious first choice materials for all components, subject to structural and wear conditions, in mechanical and plant engineering environments. * Excellent sliding and wear properties * Perfect balance of mechanical strength, toughness and rigidity * Good electrical insulating properties * Various FDA compliant grades available

 

Product/Name/Description Key Characteristics
Polyoxymethylene – Polyacetals (POM)
Polyacetals area highly crystalline thermoplastics, characterized by their high mechanical strength, rigidity and impact resistance. Acetal absorbs very little moisture, enabling the product to maintain constant physical properties in a variety of changing environments.
