Plastic Material Options

Acetal Plastic

Acetal plastic is a general-purpose, semi-crystalline, high-strength engineered thermoplastic. Commonly used for parts that need to be very stiff, have low surface friction and good dimensional stability. Good wear and tear properties especially in wet environments. Also called polyacetal and polyoxymethylene (POM).

HDPE (High Density Polyethlyene)

Known for its premium quality HDPE plastic (High Density Polyethylene), also known as PE100. The black UV-stabilised material offers the advantage of high impact strength even at low temperatures together with good corrosion resistance. It boasts excellent processing properties and is highly tolerant of chemicals. The natural PE is approved for contact with food FDA. Our range has a service temperature range from -50 degrees C to +80 degrees C.

PTFE (Polytetrefluoroethylene)

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), a strong, tough, waxy, non-stick and nonflammable. Also known as Teflon, Fluon, Hostaflon, and Polyflon, PTFE is distinguished by its slippery surface, high melting point, and resistance to attack by almost all chemicals. It has useful electrical and mechanical properties and can be moulded into solid rods, tubes and sheets for machining into finished components. It also has excellent UV resistance.
