Tube

Acrylic

Acrylic

Acrylic tube is an optically clear, transparent and lightweight material having outstanding weather-ability, high impact-resistance, and excellent thermoformability with machinability.  The applications for acrylic tube is infinite.  Available in special wall thicknesses and colors.

HDPE

High-Density Polyethylene is a thermoplastic characterized by its toughness, near-zero moisture absorption, excellent chemical resistance, electrical insulating properties, low co-efficient of friction and ease of processing.  HDPE shows greater stiffness and rigidity compared to its low-density counterpart, improved heat resistance and increased resistance to permeability.

LDPE

LDPE

Low-Density Polyethylene is a thermoplastic characterized by its toughness, near-zero moisture absorption, excellent chemical resistance and electrical insulating properties, low co-efficient of friction and ease of processing.  LDPE is flexible with high impact strength and relatively low heat resistance.

Nylatron®

Nylatron®

Nylatron® is a cast nylon produced by direct polymerization of monomer to shapes of nylon polymer, within a mold at atmospheric pressure.  This process enables the manufacturer to produce both simple and complex shapes, free of voids.  Ideal properties include wear resistance, low friction, and excellent impact resistance with high tensile strength, high heat distortion temperatures and fatigue resistance.

Nylon

Nylon

Nylon is the most used of all the thermoplastics. It is extremely strong and wear resistant. Because it is also self-lubricating, it is ideal for use in gears, bearings, pulleys, rails, etc.  It outwears metal and is highly resistant to oils and greases.  Nylon is even self-extinguishing, so it has excellent electrical and chemical properties.

Phenolics

Phenolics

Phenolic laminates are useful over a very wide temperature range. Some are even used at cryogenic temperatures.  There are different bases to phenolics.  These include paper, cotton, and glass bases.  Common applications include switchboards, gears, radio parts, gaskets and seals.

Polycarbonate

Polycarbonate is a resin in which groups of dihydric or polyhydric phenols are linked through carbonate groups.  General purpose polycarbonate is derived from bisphenol A, but for special end uses, formulations using small amounts of other polyhydric phenols are available.  Among these are resins which meet special industry codes for flame retardance or smoke density, as well as resins with increased melt strength for extrusion and blow molding.

Polypropylene

A low density, fairly rigid thermoplastic with a high heat distortion temperature and excellent chemical resistance.  Polypropylenes also have negligible water absorption, excellent chemical properties, and are easy to process.  The ability to carry light loads for long periods of time and over a wide and varying temperature range is a desirable characteristic of this material.

PVDF

Polyvinylidene fluoride, also known as Kynar®, is one of the most pure and stable plastics.  PDVF is a high molecular weight thermoplastic polymer of vinylidene fluoride.  It is highly chemically resistant, making it ideal for use with acids, bases and solvents.  It is very flexible with a wide range of uses in optic fibers.

Teflon®

Teflon®

Also known as fluorocarbons, general family properties include inertness to most chemicals, resistance to high temperatures, extremely low coefficients of friction and excellent dielectric properties which are relatively insensitive to temperature and power frequency.  Mechanical properties are normally low, but this changes dramatically when the fluoroplastics are reinforced with glass fibers or molybdenum disufide fillers.

UHMW

UHMW

Ultra-High Molecular Weight polyethylenes is defined by those polyethylenes which have molecular weight of 3.1 million or higher.  High resistance to abrasion; outlasts abrasion-resistance steel three to four times longer.  Key characteristics include low coefficient of friction, energy absorption capacity at high impact, chemically inert, zero moisture absorption, electrical and thermal insulator, self-lubricating and easy to machine.
