Getting the right material for your application will ensure it meets the demands for the planned conditions.
Does It Really Matter?
Selecting the right material for your application will ensure that it lasts and performs as expected. Is the product going to be outside or Inside? Will it be in the direct sunlight? Any chances it will be exposed to extreme temperatures? Will it be weight-bearing? These are just a few things to consider when selecting the right material.
While these are the most common materials we use, we are able to manufacture a number of specialty materials based on your needs and application.
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
Frequently used for plumbing and irrigation as well as insulation for electrical applications. Can also work well for flooring, packaging, fence, and window applications.
Polyethylene (PE, HDPE, LDPE, PET)
Widly used in applications in the food industry, outdoor furniture, and packaging solutions.
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS)
Often used for cases and enclosures as well as tough applications with high impact or low temperatures.
Plastic materials can be confusing, but it doesn’t need to be. Let us know how we can help you select the correct material.
How Do I Select the Right Material?
We are always happy to assist if you are unsure which material to use in your application. In addition to our own internal expertise, we have access to engineering experts with our supply partners to review options and take advantage of the newest and greatest materials available.
Are There Material Limitations?
Generally no, but with some specialty materials that have a very high-melt temperature or require special screws, additional steps may be required in order to deliver your product.
Can You Change the Color?
With most all of our materials we can customize the color to meet your needs.
Do You use Recycled Plastics?
Yes we do! We believe in being a responsible plastic manufacturer. We recycle our own plastic internally from start ups and from change overs. We also purchase regrind material from outside sources when we have applications that are less critical in requiring virgin material.
