– high impact stiffness
– high impact resistance
– high impact hardness
– good creep resistance
– good wear resistance
– good heat ageing properties and machinability.
Typical applications of Nylon Sheet, Nylon Rod, Nylon Tube are:
– high load nylon bearings
– high load nylon bushes
– nylon wear pads
– nylon gears
PTFE Adhesive tapes are constructed with high-quality adhesives and backing materials to deliver superior performance. A choice of silicone or acrylic adhesives are available on most products. They are manufactured from high quality PTFE-coated glass fabric, silicone rubber coated glass fabrics and skived PTFE-film in various widths and thicknesses.
Polyurethane is a unique design and construction material combining many of the advantages of rigid plastics, metals and ceramics with the extensibility of rubber. While it is not claimed that polyurethanes are the answer to all problems, they are extremely versatile, obtain cost advantages and its various performance has led to many instances of replacing metal, rubber, wood and plastic.
Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a synthetic fluoropolymer which finds numerous applications. PTFE is most well known by the DuPont brand name Teflon. PTFE shares the properties of fluorocarbons. Therefore, water and water-containing substances like most foods do not wet PTFE, as adhesion to PTFE surfaces is inhibited. Due to this property PTFE is used as a non-stick coating for pans and other cookware. It is very non-reactive, and so is often used in containers and pipe work for reactive and corrosive chemicals. Where used as a lubricant, PTFE reduces friction, wear and energy consumption of machinery.
Kolleidaboard, high density Polyethylene is a modified low density polyethylene material developed for applications where innovative, colourful and creative accessories and/or equipment is used in predominantly the Leisure and play-related industries.
This unique group of products offers properties which expand the limits of other engineering thermoplastics. Some of the advantages gained by using EPR’s are, retention of mechanical and fatigue properties at elevated temperatures, resistance against high energy radiation, maximum thermal operating temperatures and approaching that of PTEE and beyond, improved chemical resistance and increased dielectric properties.
Vendel has high hardness and stiffness, with very good mechanical properties, excellent creep resistance and dimensional stability. It has very good dielectrical properties with a low co-efficient of friction.
Polyvinyl chloride, (IUPAC Poly(chloroethanediyl)) commonly abbreviated PVC, is a thermoplastic polymer. It is a vinyl polymer constructed of repeating vinyl groups (ethenyls) having one of their hydrogens replaced with a chloride group.
Polyvinyl chloride is the third most widely produced plastic, after polyethylene and polypropylene. Over 50% of PVC manufactured is used in construction, because it is cheap, durable, and easy to assemble. PVC production is expected to exceed 40 million tons by 2016.
Polycarbonate is a premium quality see through material typically used in the fabrication of guarding in Safety Application. It is tough, easy to handle, easily fabricated and formed and easy to machine into parts of panels. It is unique for its impact resistance and its shock-load resistance.
Most commercial polypropylene is isotactic and has an intermediate level of crystallinity between that of low density polyethylene (LDPE) and high density polyethylene (HDPE); its Young’s modulus is also intermediate. PP is normally tough and flexible, especially when copolymerized with ethylene. This allows polypropylene to be used as an engineering plastic, competing with materials such as ABS. Polypropylene is reasonably economical, and can be made translucent when uncolored but is not as readily made transparent as polystyrene, acrylic or certain other plastics. It is often opaque or colored using pigments. Polypropylene has good resistance to fatigue.
Polyethylene is often used in flow promoting liners to resist sliding abrasion and to assist release. Also conveyor components subject to high wear and requiring low friction. Componentry in direct contact with food stuffs and parts subject to high impact.
Polyester has superior mechanical properties, strain and creep resistance and very low moisture absorption. Excellent for precision bearings and close tolerance wheels and gears.
