Plastic solutions for mechanical engineering that last


Faster, more efficient, more precise: These are the growing demands on mechanical engineering. The diverse properties of plastics offer immense innovation potential that will permit the industry to face these challenges.

Plastics score particularly high in situations where conventional materials, like metals, often fail. Because plastics are especially light, they are many times more energy-efficient and quiet, for example with gears and guide rails. Overall, plastic constructions require less maintenance than metal constructions. They are less prone to corrosion, wear and tear from oxidation, and they remain dimensionally stable even with constant loads. Maintenance intervals are therefore much shorter.

Advantages for mechanical engineering


Low maintenance

Plastics are not prone to corrosion, they are abrasion-resistant and wear-resistant. That is why they require much less maintenance than conventional materials, such as metals.

Weight

Plastics are real lightweights. Machines with technical plastic solutions are therefore easier to handle and more energy efficient in everyday use.

Malleability

An appealing design, innovative solutions – all this is possible thanks to the special malleability of plastics.

Oxidation

The use of active ingredients prevents plastics from oxidizing. This slows down the aging process and makes plastic products durable.

Modules

Our modern plant makes possible the production of complex modules. Our engineers have the know-how to provide support to help you design and select just the right materials.

Fire protection

Our portfolio includes high-performance plastics that meet the UL94-V0 fire protection classification. Flames extinguish after 10 seconds, and the afterglow lasts at most 30 seconds.
