Injection Molding Materials

ABS
Toughness, high impact strength and flame-retardant properties.

Acetal
Strength with excellent chemical resistance, natural lubrication, dimensional stability and stability at high temperature. 

Nylon 6/6
Strength, rigidity, impact resistance, abrasion resistance, self-lubrication and a high melting point. Ideal for metal replace applications.

Nylon 6/6 Glass Fiber
Long-lasting wear and resistance to abrasion, impact, chemicals and heat. Twice as strong as general purpose nylon. 

PBT (Polybutylene Terephthalate)
Mechanically strong and heat resistant up to 150°C. Resistant to solvents. Minimal shrinking during forming. 

PC (Polycarbonate)
Nearly unbreakable and heat-resistant up to 125°C with excellent clarity. 

PC-ABS
A blend offering rigidity, good impact strength (even in cold temperatures), and dimensional, thermal, and color stability.

Polypropylene
Flexible and lightweight with high tensile strength and very low-density. Inert toward acids, alkalis, and solvents. Ideal for hinged parts. 

Polystyrene
Solid with limited flexibility. Good for molds with fine detail. Transparent or made to take on various colors. 

PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride)
Durable, flame retardant and chemical resistant. Available in rigid or flexible forms. 

TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomers) or TPV (Vulcanizate)
Like natural rubber but more durable and longer lasting in temperature extremes. 

ULTEM 1000
Exceptional flame and heat resistance; performs continuously to 340°C and withstands multiple autoclaving cycles. Hydrolysis resistant and highly resistant to acidic solutions.
