In our vast experience in plastic extruding we have worked with virtually every type of material available. Our knowledge will ensure that your products meet the strictest specifi- cations. In addition, we can keep you up to date on new materials as they are introduced.
Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE)
Santoprene© and related materials show advantages typical of both rubbery mate- rials and plastic materials — providing the ability to stretch to moderate elongations and return to its near original shape creat- ing a longer life and better physical range than other materials.
Cellulose acetate butyrate
Flexible PVC, rigid PVC, and slipcoat/ anti-squeak
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) and High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS)
Acetal, acrylics, polycarbonates, nylons, alloys, and polyurethanes
Flax, fiberglass, calcium carbonate, talc, wood, rice hulls
Olefins (PP and PE)
Thermoplastic olefin (TPO) refers to poly- mer/filler blends usually consisting of some fraction of a thermoplastic, an elastomer
or rubber, and usually a filler.
Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) is widely used for manufacturing tubing, cor- rosion-resistant work surfaces, parts that need to be weldable and machinable, and parts that require flexibility.
High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is harder than LDPE, more opaque, and can withstand somewhat higher temperatures.
Linear Low-Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) is less shear sensitive than LDPE because of its narrower molecular weight distribution and shorter chain branching.
High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (HMWPE)
Polypropylene (PP – natural unfilled, filled, UV-stabilized), also known as poly- propene, is a white, mechanically rugged material with a high chemical resistance.
