Transport Industry Applications

The transport industry is currently experiencing huge demand in engineering plastics such as polyurethane and plastic moulds. Abrasion and impact wear, weight restrictions, friction, extreme operating conditions, heaving loading and harsh operating conditions are critical within the transportation industry. Through decades of experience within the plastic industry, Tynic has the expertise to guide you through the correct plastic for each application.

Tynic are experts in the reverse engineering of OEM componentry and sourcing engineering equipment. If there are particular parts or products that are not specifically mentioned on our website, don’t hesitate to get in contact and we will gladly help out.

Engineering Plastics

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
      • Affordability

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

OEM Componentry

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.

Polyurethane Ram Pads

Tynic offers a wide range of polyurethane pads that can be used for multiple applications such as bumpers, gaskets and mounting pads. When polyurethane is mounted onto transport equipment and used as a bumper, the pads are able to reduce noise or vibration Additionally, they are able to absorb the effects of material impact, while extending the life of machinery and its components.
