All Product Categories

  • Polycarbonate: Polycarbonate is a high-performance thermoplastic material with exceptional strength and durability. It is 250 times more resistant to breakage than standard glass and 30 times more resistant to impact than acrylic sheet plastics. With its excellent optical clarity and weather resistance, polycarbonate is widely used in applications that require high-performance materials.
  • Acrylic: Acrylic is a transparent thermoplastic material with exceptional clarity and 30 times the strength of glass. It has a low sensitivity to UV light and is highly weather-resistant, making it a popular choice for outdoor applications. Acrylic sheets are also lightweight and easy to fabricate, making them ideal for a range of applications.
  • PVC: PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) is a versatile plastic material with excellent resistance to chemicals, water, and abrasion. It can withstand temperatures ranging from -15°C to 60°C and has a high tensile strength of up to 50 MPa. PVC Type 1 is widely used in applications such as electrical insulation, signage, and industrial and mechanical environments.
  • Polypropylene: Polypropylene is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic material that is lightweight and has a high strength-to-weight ratio. It is resistant to fatigue, impact, and chemicals and performs well in corrosive environments. Polypropylene can withstand temperatures up to 100°C and has a tensile strength of up to 38 MPa. It is commonly used in automotive, packaging, and medical applications.
  • PETG: PETG is a transparent thermoplastic material with excellent impact resistance, chemical resistance, and gloss. It is 30 times stronger than acrylic and offers a balance between strength and clarity.
  • PET: PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) is a strong, lightweight thermoplastic material that is resistant to impact, moisture, and chemicals. It is commonly used in packaging applications, such as beverage bottles.
  • ABS: ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) is an amorphous thermoplastic material that offers a balance between mechanical toughness, impact resistance, and ease of fabrication. It is widely used in automotive, electronics, and consumer goods applications.
  • Nylon: Nylon is a strong, flexible thermoplastic material that offers excellent wear resistance, low friction, and high strength. It is frequently used in engineering applications, such as gears, bearings, and bushings.
  • HDPE: HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) is a versatile thermoplastic material that is lightweight and has high chemical and impact resistance. It is commonly used in applications that require support, mounting, or surface protection, such as cutting board surfaces and marine applications.
