Plastic Injection

Materials

Our engineering team will help you to select the most appropriate material to meet your product needs. In addition, they will inform you about the advantages and disadvantages of each.

We have extensive experience in using all kinds of thermoplastics among which those of greater use can be found as follows:

Polypropylene:

Thermoplastic resin produced from the polymerisation of propylene with good balance in strength and impact scale and thermal resistance. Processed by injection moulding. It has several applications: automotive sector, appliances, construction and furniture parts. It can also be mixed with various components such as impact modifiers, loads and reinforcements, pigments and additives, thus improving its mechanical and aesthetic aspects.

Polyethylene:

Ethylene polymerisation-based resin with good softness, toughness and dimensional stability. It can be applied on toys, caps and locks, engineering parts as well as on sports and leisure equipment.

Polyamides:

Easy to process and environment-friendly in production thanks to its capacity to be reused. Hard and light resin resistant to high temperature, chemical agent and humidity resistant. It has an excellent balance of strength and stiffness, reducing distortion effects. It can be reinforced with minerals and fiberglass to combine low distortion and excellent finish. Widely used in car industry and industrial pieces with numerous applications.

Acetyl resin:

Characterised by low friction, stiffness, hardness, dimensional stability, fatigue endu¬rance, resistance to solvents, fuels and abrasion. Semi-crystalline thermoplastic used for dynamic solutions (gears, skates, slides).

ABS:

A blend of three monomers: Acrylonitrile, Butadiene and Styrene. ABS has excellent engineering properties, such as good mechanical strength and impact resistance as well as easy processing. ABS is characterized by being a very strong and light material. It is therefore used in manufacturing interior and exterior car parts, as well as appliances and toys.

Polystyrene:

A thermoplastic polymer that is produced by the polymerisation of styrene. There are two main types for injection: the PS crystal, which is transparent, rigid and brittle, and high impact polystyrene, resistant and opaque. The main advantages of polystyrene are its ease of use and relatively low cost. Among its disadvantages; poor resistance to high temperature (it deforms at less than 100°C) and its poor mechanical resistance.

Polycarbonate:

A thermoplastic polymer with a number of useful properties in terms of impact resistance and transparency; the most common use is in production of transparent exterior components. It is also highly resistant to thermal deformation, with excellent dimensional stability and good electrical insulation properties.

PPS:

One of the most important high temperature polymers which has a number of outstanding properties, amongst them heat and chemical resistance to aging and sunlight. Highly demanded in sectors such as the automotive industry (air suction systems, water and fuel pumps, valves, clamps, feedback system components, etc.), as well as in electrical/electronic engineering.
