Engineering plastics is a vital material when considering cost-effective engineering solutions. Thermoplastics are renowned for offering categorical improvements on standard steel, brass and other traditional engineering materials.
Our range of materials cover a wide variety of characteristics, finding a solution for every application. These products include but are not limited to; Acrylic, Acetal, HDPE, UHMWPE, Nylon, PEEK, Polycarbonate, PVC, Polypropylene, Polyurethane, PTFE.
High performance plastics are for applications which require resistance to extreme environments that regular plastics would be incapable of maintaining dimensional stability. The most common advanced plastics are PEEK and PTFE. These plastics have excellent temperature, wear, chemical, radiation and impact resistance.
Contact Tynic today to discuss the appropriate material for your application.
The deciding factors for choosing engineering plastics are heavily dependent on its application. The following needs to be taken into consideration:
- Density (Weight)
- Corrosion Resistance
- Impact Resistance
- Is it Physiologically Inert?
- Sliding Abrasion Resistance
- Co-Efficient of Friction
- Temperature Resistance
- Dielectric Strength
- Weather Resistance
For the application of construction, common plastics include HDPE, UHMWPE, Acetal, Nylon and Polyurethane. This is mainly due to the requirement for either affordability or impact strength. for more details including datasheets

High Performance Thermoplastics
High Performance Engineering Plastics are a superior option for engineered and automated solution. Superior properties include co-efficient of friction, weight, temperature resistance, affordability and machinability. Thanks to decades of experience within the plastic industry, Tynic is always available to advise any client on the best engineered plastics for every set application. Incorrect application can often result in excessive part replacement, low efficiency, increased manufacturing shutdowns and mechanically unstable application.
High Performance plastics specifically include:
- PET (Polyester)
- PTFE ( Teflon)
- PEEK (Polyether ether ketone)
Tynic is fully equipped to advise, design, and manufacture componentry to the specifications of each individual client. Primarily, components made for the engineering industry consist of bushes/bearings.
