From pumps and compressors to meters and valves, engineered plastics are a great option in numerous fluid handling applications, exhibiting performance advantages over a broad range of temperatures, environments, and mechanical requirements.
Fluid Handling with Cope Plastics
Engineered plastics provide increased wear life in both wet and dry components, and are a non-abrasive mating surface for materials like stainless steel, aluminum, and ceramic. Applications requiring high temperatures, extreme PV values, and dimensional stability can be enhanced with a wide variety of formulations.
Resistance to chemicals—from acids, to bases, to steam—is inherent in many types of engineered plastics. Utilizing the proper material to address specific requirements is critical to achieving high performance.
Applications like seals and seats require a unique combination of strength, toughness, and fatigue resistance. Engineered plastic formulations provide successful performance in a variety of environments.
