Physical characteristics of plastics are wide and varied. We can help you choose the material best suited for your specific application.

CPVC-chlorinated polyvinyl chloride

CPVC (Chlorinated-Polyvinyl Chloride)

Because of its excellent corrosion resistance at elevated temperatures, it is ideally suited for self-supporting constructions where high temperatures are a concern.

More Info

PVC-Type 1 Grade (General Purpose)

Excellent corrosion resistance, very good dielectric properties, low moisture absorption, high rigidity, good abrasion resistance and excellent weathering properties.

More Info

Polypropylene (natural)

Chemical and corrosion resistance, no moisture absorption, high strength to weight ratio, and easy to fabricate, weld, machine, thermoform, ad vacuum form.

More Info
Coroplast Containers

Coroplast (Fluted Polypropylene)

Tougher than corrugated fiberboard, lighter than solid extruded plastics, waterproof, weather resistant, and stain resistant.

More Info

What Is Foamboard

A lightweight and easily cut material known for its strong yet lightweight properties and its smooth, stable surface.

More Info

Ultrahigh-molecular-weight Polyethylene (UHMW)

This material is an extremely tough plastic with high abrasion and wear resistance.

More Info

Low-density Polyethylene (LDPE)

Often used for orthotics and prosthetics, this material is a softer, more flexible, lighter weight than HDPE.

More Info

High-impact Polytyrene (HIPS)

HIPS is a low-cost plastic typically used for graphic arts applications.

More Info

High-density Polyethylene (HDPE)

HDPE is a thermoplastic polymer made from petroleum. Known for its outstanding tensile strength and large strength-to-density ratio, this plastic has a high-impact resistance.

More Info

What Are Polycarbonates

This plastic is a group of thermoplastic polymers containing carbonate groups in their chemical structures.

More Info

Acrylic; Plexiglass®, and Acrylite®

A transparent thermoplastic often used in a sheet form as a lightweight or shatter-resistant alternative to glass.

More Info

Cast vs. Extruded Acrylic

Cast Acrylic provides superior optical clarity and mechanical strength while Extruded Acrylic provides greater consistent thicknesses and is less costly.

More Info

Acrylic vs. Polycarbonate

Both plastics have tremendous flexibility and are very easy to clean using the proper cleaning materials.
