Engineered Resins for

High-Performance Parts

Engineered resins, also known as engineering thermoplastics, are a class of high-performance polymers designed to meet specific and demanding requirements. Unlike commodity resins, which are more general-purpose and cost-effective, engineered resins provide enhanced performance characteristics and are better suited to specialized applications.

Properties of Commodity Plastics

Mechanical Strength

Often exhibiting superior mechanical strength and toughness, making them suitable for applications that require durability and impact resistance.

Thermal Stability

Many engineering resins have higher heat resistance, allowing them to withstand elevated temperatures without deformation or degradation.

Chemical Resistance

Engineered resins are formulated to resist exposure to various chemicals, making them ideal for applications associated with harsher environments.

Electrical Properties

Some engineering resins offer excellent electrical insulation properties. As a result, they are commonly used in electronic and electrical components.

Dimensional Stability

Engineered resins typically have low levels of shrinkage during molding, leading to a finished product with enhanced dimensional stability.
