Do you already know the Engineering Plastics? It’s the right choice for making materials that need an unique characteristics such as high abrasion resistance, impact resistance, low moisture absorption, very low coefficient of friction (slip), resistance to acids and chemicals. It can dispense lubrication and even serve industries that require high levels of care.
Basic Features of Engineering Plastics:
– NYLON 6 | 6.6 | Cast
Resistant and rigid, the material has good mechanical characteristics. Large variation of gauge and dimensions of billet, plates and tubes
Fairly used in parts requiring high stiffness, polyacetal has low friction and high dimensional stability.
The material in question almost does not react with second chemicals substances, causing the toxicity to get close to zero. It is considered the third material of lower coefficient of friction and is impermeable and can work in high temperatures, reaching up to 230 ° C.
Material with high rigidity, resistance to abrasion in operations with temperature close to 100 ° C. Excellent cost benefit.
Going through extreme temperatures and having a reduced weight are two of the characteristics that make the Peek an ideal material for the aerospace industry.
High abrasion resistance coupled with its unmatched sliding capacity make UHMW one of the most used materials in the equipment and machinery industry. It can be used in extreme operations by replacing metal parts, such as in Drag chain guides, Telescopic arms slides for cranes and forklifts, non-slip sliding parts for agricultural machinery and equipment, conveyor sliding tracks, endless threads and synchronizing stars for beverage packaging, medicines, cosmetics, chemicals and others.
– TIVAR 88-2 and QUICKSILVER
The high performance TIVAR88-2 and QUICKSILVER coatings are designed to eliminate waste from more viscous materials, from mineral with high moisture content to hot asphalt in the worst operating conditions. From the icy winds of winter to the heat of summer, they release all sticky material residues, adhering to the surface, resulting in faster tipping and discharge operations. It has less damage to equipment such as truck buckets, excavator and loader shells, shut’s gutters, hoppers and silos. With less surface wear and less need for cleaning, it is an excellent flow facilitator for any bulk handling or material handling equipment!
And how to use Engineering Plastics?
The usage list is huge! It goes according to the need of each project. They can be applied in bushings for shafts and ketchup dispensers, as well as in surgical instruments. They are able to meet aeronautical demands, high voltage cable protective tubes, as well as parts of surgical instruments. They are pieces of machinery, at the same time as they are part of the composition of human implantable prostheses and kitchen utensils. Santa Clara works with engineering plastics capable of attending to any project, whatever it may be.
