Engineering Plastics, available in sheet, rod or machined components, are perfectly applicable to replace traditional engineering materials within packaging applications. Commonly used plastics include HDPE, UHMWPE, Acetal, Nylon and PTFE.
Additionally, Tynic supplies a wide range of customizable PTFE coated materials. Due to excellent heat, static and abrasion resistance, PTFE coated materials are ideal for packaging, processing and sealing applications.
MatTop Conveyor belts are ideal for packaging applications, enabling high speed transport of large and medium sized packaging.
PTFE Coated Materials
Tynic, partnered with Taconic, are major suppliers of PTFE coated glass cloth, Kevlar®, fabric and belt. Within the food and beverage industries, Taconic fabric is utilised as tray liners, sealing mechanisms, and within non-stick applications.
PTFE Adhesive Tapes: PTFE tape is extremely versatile and is used primarily to seal water, gas, air and heat from leaking through threaded connections. Most effective on high-pressure lines.
PTFE Fabrics: Extremely resistant to high temperatures, contain outstanding electrical properties, have excellent release surfaces and superior chemical resistance.
PTFE Belting: PTFE Belts and belting materials are available for applications that require superior release characteristics, permeability for rapid drying, dimensional and thermal stability, and the dynamic strength to stand up to the most rigorous operating conditions. The unique behaviour of these materials results in a product that is more practical and cost-effective than conventional belting materials.

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
