We know you have many raw materials to choose from when fabricating and manufacturing your parts. When choosing your material for your next innovati5ve project, here are a few reasons you may want to consider thermoplastics:
Diverse material options: There are many thermoplastics available, each with a unique set of properties and features. With so many options you can always find the right material for your application to succeed.
Weight: Unlike metal parts, thermoplastics are very lightweight by volume so they’re perfect in applications where you are trying to be conservative on your weight.
Durability: Thermoplastics are often used in environments and they are often subjected to friction, environmental, and temperature extremes. Parts made from thermoplastics are durable and can withstand these harsh environments, meaning you experience less downtime for equipment and get a longer part life.
Environmentally friendly: Thermoplastics are a performance plastic that is easily recyclable.
Here’s what you should look for in a thermoplastics company:
- Flexibility: Part specs and requirements sometimes change due to forces beyond your control. Choose a thermoplastics company who allow for trial runs of parts, and one with an in-house design and tooling team to make changes right away to save you time and money.
- Efficiency: Efficiency will save you money and can help eliminate waste! Look for a company with high efficiency standards to provide you with the best value.
- Customization: Every project is unique, so you want to find a plastics company that can provide custom profiles to meet your needs.
- Speed: Look for a plastics company that can turn-around your project in a reasonable timeframe. If you require quick turn-around times, look for a company that has been around for a while because they often have the knowledge and efficiency processes to make this happen for you.
