Omnia Acetal-C

Polyoxymethylene, commonly called Acetal, is a crystalline polymer obtained from the polymerisation of formaldehyde. Discovered fairly recently (1960), it has enjoyed rapid growth and large acceptance thanks to its excellent mechanical features, stability to humidity and ease of machining.

Full details

PTFE Virgin

This product is more commonly known by the brand name Teflon® and is renowned for the lowest friction coefficient. It also has exceptional chemical resistance and dielectric properties. Despite excelling with the above properties it has poor mechanical properties, which is why is can be modified with both glass and carbon to improve the dimensional stability.

Full details

ABS

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is the polymerization of Acrylonitrile, Butadiene, and Styrene monomers. Chemically, this thermoplastic family of plastics is called “thermopolymers”, in that they involve the combination of three different monomers to form a single material that draws from the properties of all three.

Full details

PETP

Arnite is a relatively new semi-crystalline polymer developed for technical applications. It is suitable for mechanical parts which require dimensional stability and a low friction coefficient. Omnialite is a modified PET designed to provide a higher shock resistance than Arnite by reducing the E-modulus.

Nylon 6 Extruded (natural)

Semi-crystalline polymer Nylon has goods general features and excellent quality/price rate. Using only high viscosity raw material for the extrusion of our Nylon 6 stock shapes grants a very high quality level: mechanical resistances as well as sliding properties are higher if compared with other low viscosity Nylons.

Full details

Polycarbonate

Polycarbonate material is formed by a condensation polymerization resulting in a carbon that is bonded to three oxygen atoms. It’s a transparent, strong and stiff thermoplastic material with outstanding impact resistance.

Full details

HDPE – PE 300

High Density Polyethylene (HD-PE300) has excellent impact strength, even at temperatures as low as -30ºC. Coupled with low coefficient of friction and ease of fabrication, HD-PE300 is widely used in automotive, leisure and industrial applications and is particularly suitable for the fabrication of tanks, silos, hoppers etc.

Full details

Polypropylene H

Polypropylene provides excellent resistance to organic solvents, degreasing agents and electrolytic attack. It has a lower impact strength, but its working temperatures and tensile strength are superior to low or high density polyethylene. It is lightweight, resistant to staining, and has a low moisture absorption rate.

Full details

UPVC

PVC has high hardness, good mechanical properties, high tensile strength and excellent chemical resistance. It is self-extinguishing and has class 1 fire rating. This is vital for construction applications and making flat sheet PVC ideal for wall cladding applications and hygienic-cladding.

Full details

Omniamid (Cast Nylon Natural)

Cast Nylon 6. The method of production of this polyamide (i.e. the polymerisation of the caprolactam directly in the mould) allows the production of stock shapes in larger than normal dimensions, such as big rings or very thick sheets.

Full details

Epoxy Sheet

This is a thermo-laminated glass epoxy material, composed of woven fibreglass cloth and an epoxy resin binder that is flame resistant. With a good strength to weight ratio this product is used most commonly in electrical applications where high heat, mechanical stability and electrically isolative conditions are needed.

Full details

Polysulfone (PSU)

PSU is a semi-crystalline polymer. It’s a material with high mechanical and thermal properties (up to 240°C.). It resists to creep under load and to wear, its friction coefficient is low. The temperature resistance without load is high but it is reduced by the addition of load even if limited.

Full details

Peek Natural

Peek has excellent mechanical strength, dimensional stability, a low coefficient of friction, very good chemical, hydrolysis resistance and radiation resistance, good dielectric properties and a low notch impact strength. UL94 Vo rated (self-extinguishing). Temperature range -50°C to +250°C.

Full details

Omnia Acetal-H

The general features of the homopolymer Acetal resin are similar to those of the copolymer POM-C. However, the service temperature (under load) is slightly higher but the resistance to hydrolysisis and strong alkalis is slightly lower. POM-H is more commonly known as Delrin®.

Full details

Acrylic

Acrylic is polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), which is sold under the brand names of Plexiglas, Lucite, Perspex, and Crystallite. PMMA is a tough, highly transparent material with excellent resistance to ultraviolet radiation and weathering. It can be coloured, moulded, cut, drilled, and formed.

Full details

PVDF

PVDF is a relatively new fluoropolymer. Like the other fluoropolymers, its best feature is its chemical resistance. The mechanical features of PVDF are notably higher than PTFE and it does not suffer strain under load.

Full details

Noryl

The NORYL family of modified PPE resins consists of amorphous blends of PPO™ resin (polyphenylene ether) and polystyrene. They combine the inherent benefits of PPO resin (affordable high heat resistance, good electrical properties, excellent hydrolytic stability and the ability to use non-halogen FR packages), with excellent dimensional stability, good processibility and low specific gravity.

Full details

Ultem

Ultem is a high performance engineering plastic offering high mechanical and electrical properties as well as excellent flame and heat resistance. It is UL94 VO rated (self-extinguishing) and USP Class VI compliant. Capable of withstanding repeated autoclaving cycles. Maximum continuous operating temperature is 170°C.

Full details

Fine Weave Phenolic Sheet F1

This material is made by applying heat and pressure to layers of Super Fine Weave Cotton and synthetic resin. When heat and pressure are applied to the layers a chemical reaction (polymerization) transforms the layers into a high-pressure thermosetting industrial laminated plastic.
