Project Description

PTFE, HDPE, PC, POM, PP, Polyamide, PU, PVC

PTFE (Teflon) is a specialized engineering plastic which has excellent non-stick properties; it has a surface to which no substance will adhere. PTFE is not affected by almost all chemicals and solvents and has outstanding dielectric properties. PTFE also has excellent UV resistance and is capable of continuous use at 260 degrees centigrate (maximum). Generally food-safe and is an all-around excellent insulator.

HDPE (Polyethylene) is a high-impact, high-strength polyethylene that exhibits excellent tensile strength, good abrasion resistance, and is FDA-approvedas a food-safe material. HDPE is generally weldable, light-weight, and has very low water absorption properties. The material’s durability makes it ideally suited for a variety of applications such as water tanks, chute linings, and numerous industrial uses (including food).

POM (Polyacetal) is a polymer of choice for impact and wear resistance in a wide range of industrial and mechanical applications. With low, consistent internal stress, the material is easily machined and fabricated. POM has good wear properties and resists moistures – making it suitable in wet environments and generally the best weight-saving metal replacement.

Polypropelyne (PP) is noted for its excellent chemical resistance in corrosive environments. It has an outstanding combination of physical, mechanical, thermal and electrical properties which provides excellent resistance to organic solvents, degreasing agents, and eletrolytic attack. PP is also light in weight, easily welded, and machined.

Polyvinvyl chloride (PVC) is one the most widely used materials in the manufacturing industry. PVC is easily machined, heat formed, welded, and even solvent cemented. There are three broad classifications for rigid PVC compunds: type I, type II, and CPVC; with type I the most commonly employed. PVC has excellent electrical insulation properties, making it also ideal for cabling applications. Its good impact strength and weatherproof attributes make it ideal for construction projects.
