Heavy Equipment

Engineered plastics are an excellent alternative to traditional metal components in construction, agricultural, and mining equipment. The unique physical characteristics of a wide variety of materials provide a performance advantage in the rugged requirements of heavy equipment.

Corrosion & Abrasion Resistance
Weight Reduction

Wear Life

The low coefficient of friction and inherent wear resistance of engineered plastics have proven to increase part life in demanding applications. These materials are also non-abrasive to mating surfaces, improving the wear life of the metallic components as well.

Lubrication Reduction

The sliding characteristics of engineered plastics and the enhanced surface lubricity offered by internal fillers can reduce or in some cases eliminate the need for additional lubrication.

Corrosion & Abrasion Resistance

Engineered plastics do not rust, they exhibit good UV resistance, and they are unaffected by a wide variety of chemicals. Abrasion resistance is also very good, enabling the materials to be used in extremely dirty environments.

Weight Reduction

Engineered plastics have an excellent strength to weight ratio, providing fuel economies, decreased compaction, and lower structural stress.
