Plastics properties, applications and groups
The various plastic types mentioned above can be divided into more specific plastic groups on the basis of their properties.
Basic plastics are the most commonly used plastics. They are produced in large quantities worldwide. The basic plastics PVC, Polypropylene and Polyethylene are excellent to process, extremely suitable for constructive applications and available directly from stock at Amari Plastics in many versions. They have good mechanical properties, are highly chemically resistant and, moreover, a very attractive type of plastic for economic reasons.
Engineering plastics are often used for dynamic mechanical engineering applications. The high wear resistance, excellent workability and mechanical properties play a major role in this. The favorable price/performance ratio of these materials is also an important application criterion. Amari Plastics offers a wide stock program in many specific versions.
High Performance Plastics
High performance plastics are the absolute top in terms of performance among engineering plastics. Characteristic are their extremely high and often low (-°C) permissible operating temperature. This group has excellent mechanical properties and dimensional stability, even at high temperatures. The performance is completed by the excellent chemical resistance.
Types of High Performance Plastics
Crystal clear plastics
Crystal-clear plastics have their specific field of application in industry. For example, in machines where visual inspection and physical protection are required, because crystal clear, light, chemical and UV resistant and virtually unbreakable is a combination of properties that you can only expect from plastics.
Thermosetting plastics have no softening range and are therefore hard, form-retaining and have a relatively high temperature range, unlike thermoplastics. Glass fibre reinforced thermosets in particular are mechanically strong, absolutely corrosion resistant and very suitable for constructive applications.
