Materials

At KT plastics, we create custom plastic parts and products using different types of plastics. The plastic that we use depends on the purpose of the item being created. For instance, a replacement part may need to be manufactured from the most durable material that we carry.

As for why our plastics and polymer blends are preferred over metal fabrication, plastics are cost-effective and can be fabricated to stand up to high temperatures and pressures.

Plastics for Machined Parts

We work with more than 50 blended materials when creating custom parts. The following is a list of the plastics that we use when manufacturing machined parts:

  • Teflon® and Teflon® blends
  • Polyurethane
  • Expanded PTFE sheets
  • PEEK™ and PEEK™ blends
  • Polypropylene
  • Nylon
  • Nylatron®
  • PVC and CPVC
  • MD/Nylon
  • Phenolic
  • Acetal and Acetal blends
  • Ryton
  • Delrin®
  • Viton®
  • PPS blends
  • Kynar®
  • Neoprene
  • Atlas®
  • Kel-f®
  • HNBR
  • Lexan®
  • PFA®
  • Tefzel®
  • Vespel®

Other materials that we work with include high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and high-temperature compression molding (HTCM). Every material has a certain degree of durability and different qualities, making each suitable for different purposes. If you are not sure which material must be used to fabricate the product, our knowledgeable staff can identify the right material.

When you know which material must be used, let us know and we will ensure it is fabricated according to your specifications.
