At its most basic level, PTFE is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene (TFE). It’s a fluorocarbon solid with a high molecular weight compound that is composed solely of carbon and fluorine atoms. PTFE is corrosion resistant, incredibly versatile and can be used in virtually everything from aerospace shuttles and computer cables to pharmaceuticals, telecommunications and even the food and beverage industry!

In many areas of industry, plastics play a significant role in improving the efficiency and competitive standing of customer applications. Due to stringent regulations, the food and beverage sector, the need to provide customers with high –performance engineering plastics has arisen.
Thanks to continuous growth of the oil and gas industry, there is now a growing demand for engineering plastic material. In this respect, high performance polymers offer many advantages over metal, especially when used appropriately
Polycarbonate is naturally transparent, unstructured, thermoplastic. It is used to produce a variety of materials and is particularly useful when impact resistance and transparency are product requirements.
Epoxy 4W/EP is a general purpose FR-4 epoxide resin laminate conforming to BSEN60893 3-2-EPGC202, based on a medium weave glass cloth. This material has excellent electrical, mechanical and fire resistance properties.
Most of us have come across the term 'nylon’ at some point or another. But what is nylon and what is it used for? By definition, nylon is a synthetic thermoplastic linear polyamide that was first produced in 1935 by American chemist Wallace Carothers. Nylon is extensively used in a variety of applications which include clothing, for reinforcement in rubber material like car tires, for use as a rope or thread, and for a number of injection moulded parts for vehicles and mechanical equipment.
PC-350™ Polycarbonate is a plastic sheet product that controls static electricity for many applications, including bent and contoured equipment covers, guards, enclosures, and panels. It is a premium quality polycarbonate sheet with a coating that prevents charge generation on the sheet surfaces.
