Plastics

Industrial Plastic

The invention of plastics changed the course of world history, and we continue to find new ways to create innovative solutions using these versatile materials. With die-cutting equipment that ranges from high-speed, tight-tolerance rotary presses to wide web presses that enable us to cut parts up to 52” long and 72” wide, we have the ability to cut plastic parts of many different thicknesses, sizes and geometries.

Explore our industrial plastic capabilities and see how we can help you develop custom solutions that meet project requirements and exceed customer expectations.

Popular industrial PLASTIC materials

Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE)

Low Density Polyethylene is a thermoplastic that offers good flexibility, toughness and resistance to many acids, bases and other solvents. LDPE is regularly used to produce containers, tubing, plastic computer parts and other molded components.

High Density Polyethylene (HDPE)

HDPE is a thermoplastic that offers many benefits, including high impact strength, high recyclability, low manufacturing costs and light weight. The material is used in injection molding processes as well as solutions for automotive, packaging and electrical applications.

Polycarbonate

Polycarbonate substrates are strong, tough materials that can be easily molded, thermoformed or tooled to create custom parts. Polycarbonate is durable, offers high-impact and low-scratch resistance, and some formulations are optically clear for greater design freedom.

Nylon

Nylon is the generic term for a family of thermoplastics made from petroleum that are most often formed into a fiber. Nylon is routinely used to create both industrial and consumer products like ropes, parachutes, socks, stockings, toothbrushes and all types of mechanical parts.

Polyester Films

These materials are extremely versatile, offering good chemical resistance, durability, and a number of valuable mechanical, optical and thermal properties. Polyester films are used for a wide range of applications, including printing and masking applications.

Teflon (PTFE)

Teflon is the trade name for polytetrafluoroethylene, a carbon and synthetic polymer that is used for a wide range of applications. Teflon offers good water resistance, chemical resistance, low friction and is suited for a broad range of temperatures.

Polyoxymethylene (POM)

This material is a thermoplastic used to create precision parts or for applications that require excellent dimensional stability, high stiffness and low friction. POM is also known for its high tensile strength, excellent chemical resistance, low permeability and hardness.

Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol (PETG)

PETG is a clear thermoplastic that is essentially a copolymerized formulation of PET. The material is often used in 3D printing because it can be engineered with custom colors and is suitable for injection molding, sheet-extruding or extruding processes.
