Polymers make many of the things that we use, even without thinking, every day.
We have an in-depth knowledge of polymers, so we know the right types of materials you will need to make your product. We find the most cost-effective and quality solution so you can leave the work to us.
There are different types of synthetic plastics and our capabilities cover:
- Standard polymers
- Engineering polymers
- High performance polymers.
Depending on what applications you need, we use a wide range of polymers. Examples of polymer types, their benefits and application are below:
|HDPE - Polyethylene (high-density)||Easily forms into lightweight containers||Milk, water and juice containers, toys, liquid detergent bottles|
|LDPE - Polyethylene (low-density)||Stretches into fine, tough, films||Bread bags, food bags, grocery bags|
|PET - Polyethylene terephalate||Easy to mould, chemical resistant, lightweight, strong||Jars, dressing bottles, soft drinks bottles|
|PP - Polypropylene||Lightweight, flexible, doesn't absorb water, doesn't mould in presence of bacteria||Packaging, labelling, stationery, reusable containers, textiles|
|POM - Acetal||High stiffness, low friction, resistant to impact||Gears, fasteners such as belt buckles, electronic/automotive and industrial applications|
|PMMA - Acrylic||Durability, lightweight, smooth surface, easy to clean, affordable||Alternative to glass, optical products, false nails, footwear, packaging|
|Nylon (Polyamides)||Tough with thermal and chemical resistance||Textiles, carpets, packaging|
|PS - Polystyrene||Resistant to moisture, lightweight, provides insulation, clean||Disposable plastic cutlery and dinnerware, CD cases, smoke detectors|
|PVC - Polyvinyl chloride||Versatile - cuts, shapes, welds and joins in a variety of styles. Good insulation, lightweight||Frames, synthetic leather, bank cards, pipes, stationery|
