Polyoxymethylene (POM), also polyacetal, is produced by polymerisation of formaldehyde via intermediate steps to homoploymer or copolymer.
Polypropylene (PP) is a thermoplastic. It is synthesised by means of a chain polymerisation of propene. The plastic is semi-crystalline and covalent.
Polyamides (PA) are a group of semi-crystalline polymers known for their wide range of applications in the plastics industry. Every type of PA has a unique chemical structure due to variations in the arrangement of the monomers.
Polyketones (PK) are thermoplastic high-performance polymers with high impact strength, low wear, good solvent resistance, low water absorption and good environmental compatibility.
Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) are compounds that combine the elasticity, appearance and feel of conventional thermosetting rubber with the processing efficiency of thermoplastics and can be tailor-made for versatile applications.
Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene copolymer
The amorphous polymer ABS is widely used due to its dimensional stability, good impact strength, excellent colourability, high gloss, versatile finishing options and convincing price-performance ratio.
Polycarbonate & acrylonitrile butadiene styrene
PC/ABS is the material of choice when the application requires toughness, heat resistance, good formability, easy processing and high optical quality.
If a material with high strength, good dimensional stability, low wear and good chemical resistance is required for applications, polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) is the right choice.
Polyphthalamide is a semi-aromatic, high-performance plastic that is characterised by exceptional heat resistance. PPA plastic is often the best economical and technical choice for components in the automotive and electronics industry with high demands.
If high temperatures, excellent chemical resistance, good mechanical properties, dimensional stability and costefficiency are required, then polyphenylene sulphide (PPS) is often the best technical and economical solution.
Liquid crystal polymers
Liquid crystal polymers (LCP) are halogen-free and inherently flame-retardant high-performance polymers with very good heat resistance for thin-walled applications as well as high tensile strength and high tensile modulus.
Long fibre-reinforced compounds
Long fibre reinforced compounds (LFRT) are thermoplastics with incorporated reinforcing fibres, which are characterised by a low creep tendency and exceptionally high impact strength or energy absorption due to the greater fibre length.
