TYPES OF PLASTIC PRODUCTS

Plasticut uses a variety of plastic materials to create products for our customers. Different materials are required for specific applications. It is important to always use the most appropriate material to ensure reliability and safety.

POLYETHYLENE

POLYETHYLENE


  One of the most common plastic materials for everyday products like plastic cutting boards, bottles, fuel tanks, wire casing, seats, piping and many others uses. Polyethylene is very malleable and easy to apply to a variety of different applications...READ MORE

Acetal

Acetal

  Acetal is a type of thermoplastic normally used in engineering situations. Quite often Acetal is used for precision parts requiring great stiffness, low friction and dependable strength and stability. Mechanical gears, bushes, rollers and handles are among the plastic products made from Acetal...READ MORE

NYLONS

NYLONS

  Nylon plastic products are now readily used to replace parts typically made from metal, such as screws, wear plates, sheaves, gears and sprockets...READ MORE

PETP

PETP

  PETP (Polyethylene Terephthalate), or PET or PETE as it is sometimes known, is commonly used for plastic products such as food and beverage containers. It is also a member of the Polyester family of resins...READ MORE

POLYPROPYLENE

POLYPROPYLENE

  Polypropylene is an inexpensive plastic material used for products such as storage tanks, bench tops, plating tanks, pump bodies and components...READ MORE

PTFE

PTFE

  PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) is most commonly known as Teflon, which is often found as a thin coating on non-stick fry pans due to PTFE's extremely high melting point (260 ?C). It has a low friction quality that makes it suitable for plastic products where a sliding action is required, such as bearings, gears, seals, packings, piston rings and seats...READ MORE

PVC

PVC

  Polyvinyl Chloride is very often used in subterranean fluid distribution, such as sewage pipes, due to its inexpensive cost and low risk of corrosion. It is also used in door and window frames, and in applications where metal may corrode due to environmental conditions...READ MORE

ADVANCED ENGINEERING PLASTICS

ADVANCED ENGINEERING PLASTICS

  These are used in the most harsh and unforgiving of environments. The susceptibility of metals to corrosion, as well as the weakness of lighter plastics means that advanced engineering plastics are used for very specific applications...READ MORE

POLYCARBONATE

POLYCARBONATE

  This incredibly strong material is often used where an unforseen impact may occur. Many guards for machinery and vehicles are made from Polycarbonate, as well as skylights, bus shelters and boat hatches. If coated, it is UV stabilised and will last well in most environments...READ MORE

ACRYLIC

ACRYLIC

  Acrylic is a UV stabilised and lightweight material commonly used in signage, mechanical covering and displays. Its excellent clarity coupled with its strength makes it a very versatile material suitable for a variety of uses. As a product, it is often known as Perspex to both suppliers and the general public...READ MORE

POLYURETHANE

POLYURETHANE

  Polyurethane is available in a variety of hardness, densities and colours. It possesses excellent impact resistance and has high wear resistance, which means it will go the distance when a metal material is unsuitable...READ MORE
