Polyamide is characterized by high moisture absorption, enormous impact strength and excellent sliding properties. The material is excellently suited for use as a construction/bearing material (e.g. housing, bushings, etc.) and has excellent abrasion and wear resistance. The thermoplastic polyamide belongs to the group of aminocarboxylic acids and is semi-crystalline.
Polycarbonate has an enormously high impact strength. In addition, polycarbonate has excellent heat resistance and temperature resistance. Due to the high-quality, versatile properties of the transparent thermoplastic, polycarbonate can be used in a wide variety of applications, such as protective glazing, cladding and roofing, for technical products, machines and insulation parts, etc.
Polyethylene is semi-crystalline and has high food fastness, stiffness and toughness as well as excellent chemical resistance. The material is also characterized by a soft, flexible surface texture, making it suitable for a wide range of applications. For example, in the packaging and food industries, in the machine industry and in many other applications.
Polyetheretherketone is a high performance plastic that is resistant to high temperatures and has a very high continuous operating temperature. In addition, PEEK is characterized by excellent flexural and tensile strength, stiffness and hardness as well as chemical resistance. Due to its excellent mechanical and chemical properties, polyether ether ketone is particularly suitable for the production of highly stressed parts.
Polyethylene terephthalate is a structural plastic with excellent electrical insulation and excellent machinability. PET has very good wear and friction properties as well as high weather resistance. The thermoplastic is used, for example, in the manufacture of films, textile fibres or plastic bottles.
Polyoxymethylene is a universal, partially crystalline plastic with excellent machinability, strength and dimensional stability. POM is UV-resistant in black and is characterised by its surface hardness and high toughness. The stiffness as well as the low coefficients of friction make the thermoplastic material suitable for various applications in which precision parts are used. For example, in electrical engineering and precision mechanics as well as in the automotive industry.
Polypropylene is characterized by excellent strength, hardness and stiffness. In addition, PP has a high resistance to acids and chemicals. Due to its high strength and melting temperature, prolypropylene is ideal for welding and is therefore very versatile. The thermoplastic is used in the packaging industry, automotive industry and the construction sector.
Polystyrene has a sensational light transmission and is characterized by excellent surface quality and radiation resistance. The material PS has a medium hardness and strength as well as a high stiffness. Due to the dielectric properties of the thermoplastic, polystyrene is particularly suitable for high-frequency technology. PS is used, among other things, in the course of food packaging and for general packaging production

PMMA has excellent light transmission and is brilliant and colourless. Polymethyl methacrylate has very good lightfastness, medium strength and high stiffness. The surface can be polished and is particularly scratch-resistant when treated with special surface treatment. PMMA also has very good insulating properties. The thermoplastic is used in optics, electronics, automotive industry, construction, etc.
PTFE has excellent insulating properties. It is therefore particularly suitable for high-frequency applications. Polytetrafluoroethylene is also used in many other areas (industry, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, etc.). PTFE has low stiffness, strength and hardness. On the other hand, it has excellent impact strength. Due to its non-polarity, it is anti-adhesive and hardly wettable. Polytetrafluoroethylene also has excellent chemical and weather resistance.
PVC has excellent resistance to temperature, weather and light. In addition, polyvinyl chloride has very good sliding properties and excellent chemical resistance. The material can be easily bonded and processed excellently. Polyvinyl chloride has a very long durability and is used as a basic material for floor coverings, in the construction sector, as a window profile, as well as for kebal sheathing and many other applications.
Polyvinylidene fluoride is a semi-crystalline, opaque, thermoplastic fluoroplastic. PVDF is characterised by its good UV resistance and excellent chemical resistance. The material is very easy to weld and is used in numerous applications such as membranes and seals. PVDF is also used for the production of shrink tubing, gear wheels, slide rails, packaging films, etc.
