ABS is a commonly used thermoplastic polymer with excellent impact, temperature and chemical resistance. It is also easy to machine and process and has a smooth surface finish. ABS can undergo various post-processing treatments, including coloring, surface metallization, welding, electroplating, bonding, hot pressing and more.
POM (Polyoxymethylene) is an engineering thermoplastic material that demonstrates excellent dimensional stability, stiffness and impact and temperature resistance. The material, also known as acetal or Delrin, can be produced two ways: as a homopolymer or as a copolymer. POM materials are commonly used in the fabrication of pipe components, gear bearings, household appliances, automotive parts, consumer electronics and more.
PC (polycarbonate) is a type of amorphous thermoplastic known for its high impact resistance and transparency. It also demonstrates good electrical insulation properties and moderate chemical resistance. Available in a range of rod and plate formats, PC is commonly used in the automotive industry for the production of instrument panels, pumps, valves and more. It is also used in other sectors for the production of protective gear, medical devices, intermal mechanical parts and more.
PA, commonly known as Nylon, is a synthetic polymer with broad applications across many industries. The material is popular because of its good mechanical strength, stiffness, toughness, shock absorption and wear resistance. Often seen as a universal plastic for producing mechanical structural parts, PA also boasts good electrical insulation and chemical resistance.
PMMA, also known as acrylic, is a transparent thermoplastic. One of the most widely used plastics in the world, PMMA demonstrates good chemical stability, mechanical properties and weather resistance. The material is also easy to process and to dye. Because of its transparency, PMMA is often used as an alternative to glass and is popular in the interior design, construction and chemical industries. It is also regularly used in advertising to fabricate signage, lightboxes and billboards.
