ENGINEERING PLASTICS such as Nylon, Delrin®, Acetron®, PET-P, DURATRON®, ULTEM®, FLUOROSINT®, TECHTRON®, TORLON®, ERTALYTE® and many others are increasingly being used to replace other materials like bronze, stainless steel, aluminum, and ceramics. The most popular reasons for switching to plastics include:

  • Longer part life
  • Elimination of lubrication
  • Reduced wear on mating parts
  • Faster operation of equipment / line speeds
  • Less power needed to run equipment
  • Corrosion resistance and inertness
  • Noise reduction
  • Weight reduction

Materials such as TIVAR® 1000 UHMW offer low-friction, impact strength, wear resistance, and corrosion resistance for:

AGRICULTURE - wearstrips, chain guides, flights, chain tensioners, spreaders and grain strippers

FOOD PROCESSING - augers, bearings, guide rails, rollers, chutes, hopper liners deboning tables, spiral freezers, idler sprockets, mixer bushings, mixer paddles and trough liners

WASTEWATER / SEWAGE TREATMENT - scraper blades, filter press plates, wearstrips, bearings guide rails, plow blades, flight wear shoes, chain sprockets, idlers, vents and filter plates
