Product Range

A B S

Sheet only - low cost, signage material.


ACETAL

A thermoplastic with a high level of stability and rigidity as well as good sliding properties and wear resistance in rod and tube.


ACRYLIC

Sheet in various colours, clear rod and tube - excellent outdoor use, no load or scratch resistance, UV stabilized, excellent for signage and fabrication.


D M C

Dough Moulded Compound for low cost electrical insulating, moulded items.


HDPE / UHMWPE

Sheet and solid rod – a thermoplastic with high toughness and chemical resistance but rather low mechanical strength in comparison to other plastics.


NYLON

Sheet, rod and tube - extruded and cast nylons with high mechanical stability and good wear resistance, including our own premier grade, Demex.


POLYCARBONATE

Hi impact resistance, dimensionally stable, good use in fabrication of machine guards.


POLYPROP

Sheet and solid rod – a thermoplastic with high rigidity and very good chemical resistance.


P T F E

Sheet, rod and tube plus moulded items - high temp 260°C, excellent chemical resistance, low co-efficient of friction, various fillers available.


POLYURETHENE

Sheet, rod and tube - plus moulded items (various colours) Poly-urethane is an excellent alternative to rubber for wear and chemical resistance.


PULTRUSIONS

Pultruded fibre-glass profiles in continuous lengths, for high strength, electrical insulation items.


P V C

Sheet and solid rod – a rigid material with excellent chemical resistance and bonding properties.
