Engineering plastics

Engineering plastics are produced by linking additional polymer chains to basic plastics’ polymer frames.

Engineering plastics include POM (polyoxymethylene or polyacetal), PA (polyamide or nylon), PET (polyethylene terephthalate), Technical PC (polycarbonate), PUR (polyurethane), and their alloys. Offering higher dimensional accuracy than basic plastics during machining, engineering plastics have several properties that make them suitable for challenging applications. Typically, engineering plastics are used in environments where temperatures remain below 150°C.
