Polymer Resin Engineering
Polymer Resin Engineering
At EnviroTech Custom Injection Molders, we employ the highest quality engineering resins in our production processes, helping us ensure the outstanding results we are known for throughout the industry.
We recommend the resins that will help produce the results you seek in your injection molding applications.
For example, we consider the temperature and environment under which you will use your components. Some polymer resins are better suited to endure exterior conditions or high temperatures than others. Likewise, certain materials can stand up better than others to solvents, oxidants, esters, acids, bases, ketones, etc.
We also recommend materials based on how their mechanical properties align with your component needs. Some considerations might include the material’s stiffness, propensity for shrinking and how much strength and impact resistance the material has.
Among the high-tech engineering resin material options we offer are:
- Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK)
- Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS)
- Polypropylene (PP)
- High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE)
- Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
- Nylon (PA)
- Polycarbonate (PC)
- Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS)
We also have a variety of options for additives, surface treatments and physical finishing techniques we can use with our polymer engineering resin applications to produce optimal results. These techniques can help your components resist dirt and dust, help finish coatings adhere to or produce other desired characteristics.
We source our engineering resins from the world’s leading producers of specialty polymers and plastics. In fact, we often collaborate with resin manufacturers to create polymers specifically for our customers’ applications. This helps us continue to reliably produce the exceptional quality injection molded components we are known for.
EnviroTech offers a variety of engineering resins and other plastic injection molding materials for our customers’ needs. You can always specify the materials you want used for your project or you can call upon our team of experienced injection molding professionals to recommend the materials that best meet your needs and budgetary requirements.
Fluoropolymers are used in applications such as electronic data storage, communications, transportation, and medical devices. These materials are highly durable and sustainable, resistant to chemicals and heat, and capable of delivering high performance in a variety of applications.
Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK)
PEEK provides a high level of tensile strength and an outstanding chemical resistance. This material is also resistant to fatigue and abrasion wear as well as a high-temperature tolerance. PEEK can even be used as a replacement for metal in many applications.
Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS)
PPS offers a desirable balance of performance and cost, making it appropriate in a wealth of applications. PPS provides a high level of chemical- and high temperature resistance. Its high level of dimensional stability makes PPS ideal for complex molded products requiring tight tolerance.
PP offers a high level of heat and chemical resistance with an affordable price point. PP is durable and lightweight, and appropriate for use in a variety of applications including medical and laboratory, toys, sporting goods and storage containers.
High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE)
HDPE is a robust thermoplastic that is tough and flexible, making it well-suited to a variety of applications. This versatile material is lightweight and resistant to chemicals. HDPE also provides excellent impact resistance under low temperatures.
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
PVC offers a well-tested suite of characteristics that include high levels of strength and durability, weather- and chemical- and flame- resistance. Applicable in a variety of applications, PVC can produce both rigid and flexible results. PVC offers a cost-effective, lightweight and long-lasting alternative to metal.
Nylon polyamide offers a high tensile strength, low wear rate (even under high friction), and low moisture absorption. PA resists most organics as well as water and steam. An excellent metal replacement in many applications, nylon allows for a high level of customization using carbon and glass fillers.
One of the most rugged material options for injection-molded products, PC offers a high level of impact resistance and strength in a variety of applications. PC offers the ability for transparency and rigidity, along with the option for reinforcing additives.
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS)
ABS offers superior strength and high impact resistance. This material is also temperature resistant with good rigidity and surface appearance. ABS is cost-effective and appropriate for use in medical devices, electronics, industrial components and more.
