Rigid Materials Extruded

Back to Services
ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene)

Has good impact strength as well as stable mechanical properties at temperatures from -20 to 80 °C. High gloss (Shiny surface). Low scratch resistance. Needs additives to be flame retardant and UV resistant.

Acrylic (PMMA : Poly Methyl Methacrylate)

High transparency. High gloss. Economic alternative to PC (polycarbonate) when extreme strength is not needed. Low impact strength. Brittle under moderate load. (Both can be improved with additives)

HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene)

Good mechanical properties. Good rigidity. Will degrade under long term exposure to UV.

Rigid PVC (Poly Vinyl Chloride)

The most common type of plastic. Good mechanical properties. Not environmental friendly, produces Hydrochloric Acid gas when burned.

PETG (Polyethylene Terephthalate)

Has good transparency, but not as clear as PMMA. Good impact strength. An alternative material between PC and PMMA.

PE (Polyethylene)

The most used plastic in the world. Has good chemical resistance towards acids and bases. Depending on density, mechanical properties for PE varies.

PP (Polypropylene)

Tough and flexible with good chemical resistance. Liable to chain degradation when exposed to UV.

PC/ABS (Polycarbonate ABS Blend)

Very good rigidity, impact strength and mechanical properties. High gloss. Difficult to process (extrude)
