Beneficial Features of Engineering Plastics Offered at Mid Continent Plastics

Engineering plastics are basically thermoplastics, which are becoming quick alternatives to metal in various industrial applications. Their easy availability is one of the main reasons for this replacement. In addition to this, the plastics available with us offer several benefits, which are as mentioned below:

  • Chemical Composition: The engineering plastics are known for their simple molecular structures with independent macromolecules. Their chemical composition allows easy alterations, whenever necessary.
  • Easy to Modify: Physical, chemical, and thermal properties of engineering plastics can be altered by adding fillers and additives. These modifications help optimize the product characteristics to suit application requirements.
  • Malleability: These plastics can be softened by heating, then formed, shaped, welded, and solidified easily without severe damaging. Many of these plastics also allow recycling and reprocessing. This brilliant malleability is one of the reasons for the increasing popularity of engineering plastics among welders, and injection molding service providers.
  • High Thermal Resistance: Engineering plastics can withstand temperatures between 100 °C and 150 °C, this is why they are mostly termed as technical thermoplastics.
  • Excellent Machinability: These thermoplastics provide the same strength and durability as their metal and wood counterparts. Also, they offer the additional benefit of molding into complex shapes.

In addition to the above-mentioned benefits, the engineering plastics are also known for the following:

  • Excellent Dimensional Stability
  • Good Wear and Tear Resistance
  • Good Chemical Resistance
  • High Tensile Strength
