PVDF / Polyvinylidene fluoride
PVDF / polyvinylidene fluoride is a fluorine-based plastic. It has high tensile strength and can be drawn into thin fibers.
PEEK glass-filled material is a type of plastic that is reinforced with glass fibers. It is strong, stiff and resistant to heat and chemicals.
PP (Polypropylene) has excellent resistance to moisture and chemicals, impressive impact strength and good elasticity.
Nylon 6 / PA 6
The fibers are tough but retain high tensile strength and elasticity. PA 6 is extremely resistant to wear and good electrical insulation.
UHMW PE / Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene
UHMW PE is extremely tough and has high resistance to abrasion and wear. It is corrosion resistant and self-lubricating.
PTFE / Teflon
PTFE (Teflon) is a highly slippery material with excellent resistance to extreme temperatures. It has outstanding insulating properties.
POM / Delrin acetal
POM is an easy resin for molding. It has a relatively high tensile strength as well as high resistance to wear, creep and warp.
Acrylic (PMMA) is the most common form of clear, moldable thermoplastic, often used in place of glass due to its higher resistance.
PEEK is used in the production of components such as tubes, bearings, seals, valves, electric insulation and even medical implants.
PC – Polycarbonate is a naturally transparent plastic with high strength and durability on impact. It is shatter resistant and heat resistant.
