Engineering plastics offer many advantages over metal as a production material:
- Reduction in weight
- Good wear properties
- Superior corrosion and chemical resistance
- Ease of processing
- Electrical and thermal insulation
- Cost saving
Selecting the correct engineering plastics for your application can be an intimidating proposition, and certainly the selection process will be crucial in determining the success or failure of the application. Therefore, consideration of the application conditions are crucial, i.e. chemicals, heat/temperature, speeds/loads, expansion/creep and insulations are just some examples.
Bay Plastics are here to ensure the right selection has been made. Our commitment to service and unrivalled product knowledge enables us to guide you in all aspects of material selection.
