Plastic Material

Features

Applicable products

 

POM

Low friction coefficient,

Good geometric stability

Especially suitable for the production of gear and bearing

 

 

 

 

 

 

PA

 

PA6

Good elasticity,

High impact strength,

Water absorption is bigger

Suitable for making general machinery parts, reduce friction wear parts, transmission parts, as well as chemical, instrumentation and so on.

 

PA66

Better than PA6,

High strength,

Good abrasion resistance

 

PA610

Similar to PA66,

but small water absorption,

Low stiffness

 

PA1010

Translucent,

Small water absorption,

Good cold resistance

 

 

 

PC

 

Very good impact strengthm,

Thermal stability, Glossiness,

Inhibit bacteria,

Flame retardant properties and stain resistance

Electrical and business equipment(computer components, connectors, ect.), Appliances(food processor, a refrigerator drawer, ect.), The transportation industry(the vehicle’s front and rear lights, dashboard, ect.)

 

PETG

Transparent,

high strength,

high wayward integrated features

Plate, sheet, special-shaped material (film, bottles), cosmetics packaging

 

 

 

PPO

 

Non-crystalline material,

Moisture absorption of small,

Poor liquidity,

Low bibulous rate is about 0.06%

Suitable for production of heat resistance, insulation parts, antifriction, wear parts, transmission parts, medical and eletronic parts(screws, fasteners and fittings )

 

 

 

PBT

One of the most tenacious engineering thermoplastic materials

 

Have a very good chemical stability, mechanical strength, electrical insulation properties and thermal stability

 

Home appliances (food processing blade, vacuum components, electric fans, hair dryer, coffee ware, etc.), electrical components (switch, electrical cabinet, fuse box, computer keyboard key, etc.), automotive industry (radiator shutters, panels, wheel cover, car body, door and window components, etc.)

 

 

 

 

 

PMMA

Excellent optical properties and resistance to climate change.

The white light penetrability is as high as 92%

Have very low birefringence

Have room temperature creep property

Have good impact resistance properties

automobile industry(signal equipment, instrument panel, etc.), pharmaceutical industry (ChuXie container, etc.), industrial applications (video, light scattering), consumer goods (drink cup, stationery, etc.)
