Thermoplastics ... infinite variety

... endless opportunities.

Our plastics are characterised by a huge range of properties. By mixing different raw materials (blending) or by co-extruding different plastics during plate production (multi-layering), there is virtually no limit how you can combine the basic properties of the individual plastics. For example, we use and process ABS/ASA, ABS/PMMA, ABS/TPU, PS/PE, PC/ABS, etc.

 

 

Standard-Thermoplastics

Name Properties Chemical resistance
ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) High surface hardness, good impact strength, good adhesive and painting properties, galvanisable, continuous service temperatures from - 45 to 95 degrees Celsius Alcohol, benzine, bases, oil, acids
ASA (Acrylonitrile styrene acrylate) Similar to ABS, but much more weather and UV resistant; high quality, shiny and scratchproof surface; continuous service temperatures from -40 to 80 degrees Celsius see ABS
PE (Polyethylene) High resistance against chemicals; high viscosity and breaking elongation, almost unbreakable; continuous service temperatures from -50 to 70 degrees Celsius Alcohol, benzine, bases, solvents, oil, acids
PP (Polypropylene) Higher stiffness, hardness and stability than PE; continuous service temperatures from 0 to 110 degrees Celsius; PP can be mixed with mineral fillers such as talcum, chalk or fibre glass which considerably enlarges the spectrum of the mechanical properties (stiffness, service temperatures etc.). see PE
PS (Polystyrene) Hard, brittle, crystal clear, UV sensitive, also high-impact variants, continuous service temperatures from -10 to 70 degrees Celsius Alcohol, bases, oil, acids
PVC (Polyvinyl chloride) High stability and resistance, good insulating properties; continuous service temperatures from -50 to 70 degrees Celsius Alcohol, benzine, bases, oil, acids
PETG (Polyethylene terephthalate with glycol) High stiffness, hardness and shape retention; continuous service temperatures from -20 to 70 degrees Celsius Alcohol, benzine, oil
PC (Polycarbonate) High stability, impact resistance, stiffness and hardness; weather and radiation resistant, electrically insulating, continuous service temperatures from -100 to 130 degrees Celsius Alcohol, benzine, oil, acids
PMMA (Polymethylmethacrylate) High hardness and impact strength, UV and weather resistant, transparent; continuous service temperatures from -40 to 70 degrees Celsius Benzine, bases, acids
TPE (Thermoplastic elastomers) Thermoplastic elastomers are synthetic materials which behave similar to the classical elastomers with room temperature, but plastically deform when heat is added and thus show a thermoplastic behaviour. different

 

Fireproofing
The right fireproofing additives can have a positive effect on how plastics react to fire. All fire prevention standards after UL94 can be met.

Conductivity
There are several methods available for filling plastic components with conductive materials to prevent them from becoming electrostatically charged. The most common of these materials are carbon black and graphite.
