Engineering plastics polymer specialists
Engineering plastics are the material of choice for various applications given their excellent combination of mechanical, physical, thermal and chemical properties. In the automotive industry, plastics are increasingly replacing metal and glass since they provide cost, weight and CO2 emissions savings. K.D. Feddersen are the experts in the distribution of engineering plastics. Our products can be efficiently processed by injection moulding and blow moulding. We are your premium supplier and service provider for the development and manufacture of engineering plastic applications.
Our global competencies mean we can deliver innovative solutions to many different industry sectors such as the automotive, E/E, domestic appliances, building and construction, sports and health care industries. Together with AKRO-PLASTIC GmbH, our affiliated company in the Feddersen Group, we can develop and produce tailor-made plastic compounds and masterbatches for engineered applications. The global engineering plastics market is expected to reach € 81.49 billion by 2020. The market is witnessing strong growth due to increasing demand from various end-use industries.

We specialise in a broad range of engineering plastics and, thanks to our many years of experience, can help you find exactly the right plastic material to suit your application. Polypropylene (PP) is one of the most versatile polymers available and is used widely. Polyamides such as PA 6 or PA 6.6 are tough and strong with high shock and fatigue resistance and are well known for their ease of processing. Combined with minerals, glass fibre and/or carbon fibre, polyamide compounds feature outstanding strength, toughness, impact and heat resistance. All this makes them ideal for use in automotive industry applications where weight reduction is a must. They also boast excellent anti-friction characteristics as well as chemical resistance. Polyaryletheretherketone materials (PEEK) are characterised by their excellent mechanical and chemical properties which can be maintained at high temperatures.
Thanks to a close cooperation with our affiliate company AKRO-PLASTIC, a leading plastics compounder, we are one of the leading distributors of polyamides (PA), polyphthalamides (PPA), polyketones (PK), POM, PBT, PC, PC blends and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS). We also possess the skills and expertise needed to provide tailor-made solutions to our customers. Developing innovative products is our goal. To achieve this, we are fully prepared to work closely with our customers to explore innovative new solutions. AF-COLOR, a branch of AKRO-PLASTIC, enables us to offer masterbatches, including carbon black, and color batches or specific functional concentrates that enable processes and applications for foaming or better mould release. Aside from this, through BIO-FED we offer biopolymers such as biodegradable plastics made of renewable and bio-based products. BIO-FED is a branch of AKRO-PLASTIC and a member of the Feddersen Group.
