ABS is a popular choice for custom plastic components because it has a low melting point and is easy to work with. However, it does not have some of the important factors of other plastics required for difficult applications.
The generic name for many types of plastics, acetal is a thermoplastic available in copolymers and homopolymers to meet a variety of production needs.
Also known as Lucite® and Plexiglass®, Acrylic is shatter-resistant and acts as a substitute for glass.
An acetal plastic used to replace metal in demanding applications due to its high strength and stiffness with low friction. Because it works well with other metals, it can be a great choice for custom plastic components.
One of the first mixed polymers, glass-filled nylon is much stronger than standard nylon. Many small custom plastic components use this material as a load-bearing piece that mixes strength and stiffness.
Not just used for fabrics, Nylon is known for its strength, impact resistance, chemical resistance, and light weight.
Polyether ether ketone is a plastic resin known for its strength and stiffness. It is highly resistance to heat and chemicals, making it a common choice for medical and aerospace applications.
Phenolic is a laminated plastic used in a variety of custom plastic components due to its high strength, resistance to solvents, and dielectric strength and many other features. Because of these features, it is most commonly used for electrical applications.
As exclusive plastic manufacturers, Severna Operations protects materials like polycarbonates, which will develop cracks and warp over time when exposed to the various fluids in metal machine shops.
Polyethylene is one of the most popular types of plastics from consumer applications to medical devices and industrial components, depending on the compound
This plastic is used primarily as custom plastic components for the electrical industry because it has high insulating properties.
This plastic has water and chemical resistance properties, as well as resistance to high and low temperatures. It can be used across a variety of custom plastic components and applications including electrical and consumer products.
With high chemical resistance and has superior thermal stability. Because it is also suitable for food contact, this plastic can be used in food, chemical, and pharmaceutical engineering applications.
Because PVS is relatively inexpensive and available, it is one of the most common plastics found applications from plumbing to replacement rubber parts.
Techtron PPS offers the highest resistance to chemicals compared to other engineered plastics as well as inherently flame retardant with excellent electrical characteristics. Along with moisture resistance and low linear thermal expansion, this material is practical in many precise, custom plastic components.
Custom plastic components made from Torlon are most commonly used in military applications and other severe service conditions. They exhibit low wear resistance, strength in low temperatures, electrical insulation, and many more features.
Due to its high dielectric properties, Rexolite is an ideal material for the electrical and connector industries with uses in microwave applications.
Most used by the connector and electrical industry, Fluroloy also has high dielectric properties with a high rate of thermal conductivity.
Ultem® is a resin that meets high heat and chemical needs, meaning it resists stress cracking when exposed to acids and chemicals specifically in aerospace and automotive applications. We’ve used Ultem ® in many custom plastic components depending on the engineering requirements of the industry.
