Full Range of Plastic Materials Available
Plastic materials are also commonly used for washers and gaskets due to their versatility, durability, and resistance to various environmental conditions. Here are some common types of plastic materials offered:
Polyethylene is a widely used plastic material known for its excellent chemical resistance, low friction, and good impact strength. It is available in various forms, such as high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and low-density polyethylene (LDPE), each with its own properties. Polyethylene washers and gaskets are commonly used in applications where resistance to chemicals, moisture, and low friction is required.
Polypropylene is a thermoplastic material that offers excellent resistance to chemicals, high-temperature stability, and good mechanical strength. It has low moisture absorption and is often used in applications involving contact with chemicals, acids, and bases. Polypropylene washers and gaskets are widely used in chemical processing, plumbing, and industrial applications.
PTFE, commonly known by the brand name Teflon®, is a highly versatile plastic material with exceptional chemical resistance, low friction, and high-temperature resistance. It has a low coefficient of friction, making it suitable for applications where non-stick properties are required. PTFE washers and gaskets are commonly used in applications involving aggressive chemicals, high temperatures, and in industries such as food processing, pharmaceuticals, and chemical manufacturing.
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS)
ABS is a lightweight and impact-resistant plastic material with good mechanical strength and rigidity. It offers good resistance to chemicals and is commonly used in automotive, plumbing, and electrical applications. ABS washers and gaskets are suitable for applications requiring strength, durability, and moderate chemical resistance.
Nylon is a versatile engineering plastic known for its high strength, excellent wear resistance, and good dimensional stability. It offers good resistance to chemicals, oils, and solvents. Nylon washers and gaskets are commonly used in applications involving high loads, abrasion resistance, and in industries such as automotive, machinery, and electrical equipment.
Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW)
UHMW is a type of polyethylene with an extremely high molecular weight, resulting in exceptional wear resistance, impact strength, and low friction properties. It has excellent chemical resistance and high abrasion resistance, making it suitable for demanding applications. UHMW washers and gaskets are commonly used in industries such as mining, material handling, and automotive, where resistance to wear, impact, and sliding friction is critical.
Polyurethane is a versatile plastic material with excellent mechanical properties, including high tensile strength, abrasion resistance, and elasticity. It can be formulated into various hardness levels, ranging from soft and flexible to hard and rigid, depending on the specific application requirements. Polyurethane washers and gaskets are known for their resilience, durability, and resistance to oil, grease, solvents, and abrasion. They find applications in industries such as hydraulic systems, automotive, and machinery.
Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate (EVA)
EVA is a versatile plastic material that combines the properties of both rubber and plastic. It has a soft and flexible nature, providing good shock absorption and cushioning properties. EVA is often used in applications where impact resistance, vibration dampening, and comfort are required.
