Thermoplastic Polymers for Parts
Thermoplastics have a wide range of applications. Items made from thermoplastic materials are common in consumer and industrial use – especially for the fabrication of parts used by original equipment manufacturers and other manufacturers. Many of these materials can provide thermal and electrical insulation needed for an assembly of fabricated parts.
Dielectric Manufacturing stocks a wide variety of thermoplastic polymers for fabrication into plastic parts. Among the materials are the many types commonly used are ABS (which can be food-safe), acrylic, polyethylene, polystyrene and PVC. These and other thermoplastic materials are available with various durometer hardness levels; the finished part can be very hard and strong or soft and pliable like rubber.
With thermoplastics, parts can be made in high volumes without sacrificing precision.
We use CNC machines, not injection molding machines, to fabricate thermoplastic parts with great precision. Read about the difference at the Goodman Project website.
Thermoplastics can be re-formed once the shape is manufactured, as the material experiences physical change rather than chemical change. Thus, parts made with thermoplastics are recyclable.
