Engineering Plastics


We can supply a wide range of engineering plastics in sheet, rod and plate form to suit a diverse range of applications. Engineering plastics have many advantages over traditional engineering materials such as metal. They are easy to work with and have excellent mechanical and thermal properties. They often weigh less than equivalent materials and can offer a much greater resistance to corrosion and chemicals.


Acrylic

Clear acrylic sheet is available in a choice of sizes. It is a highly transparent material with a high impact strength compared to glass. It is easy to machine and fabricate and is UV protected giving it a good resistance to weathering. Various sizes and thicknesses available. Acrylic is also available in a range of colours-please ask a member of our sales team for details.

Nylon

We have a wide selection of nylon in rod and sheet form, including nylon 6, nylon 66, glass filled and oil filled. Nylon can be used as a replacement for traditional engineering materials such as steel or brass. It is a very strong material with good sliding properties and excellent wear resistance. It also has good electrical insulating properties and can be machined easily. It is available in a large choice of sizes and thicknesses.

Common applications:
Bearings
Wear Pads
Rollers
Gears
Spacers
Bushes


High Density Polyethylene

High density polyethylene sheet has excellent impact strength and a very low co-efficient of friction. It is also highly resistant to chemicals and has low moisture absorption. It is easily handled and can be easily fabricated. It is available in a choice of grades and colours to suit any task.

Common applications:
Fabricated Tanks
Wear Strips
Guide Rollers
Food industry
Pharmaceutical Industry
Leisure industry


Dark grey PVC sheet
