Today, we can choose the most suitable material for our needs in a wide and constantly evolving range, where the basic properties are combined with advanced characteristics for the given field of application
The new hi-tech “Food comlpliant” polymers are more economical than the previous generation, but they can be used with high temperatures and aggressive substances, maintaining excellent mechanical and self-lubricating properties.
Today, we can choose the most suitable material for our needs in a wide and constantly evolving range, where the basic properties (extreme self-lubrication, wear resistance, chemical resistance) are combined with advanced characteristics for the given field of application.
PEEK®, Teflon®, Polizene®, Delrin®, Nylon®, Arnite® and Vetronite® are perhaps the best-known brands, but do they still represent the best in terms of price/performance ratio? For example, the components in POLYSTAR-A weigh half of those in aluminum, cost less and do not require lubrication: the result of the replacement is an increase in the maximum speed up to 66%.
With the new range of high-temperature materials, Plastics & Seals can produce critical components for situations where other materials would fail, at a low cost.
The research allowed Plastics & Seals to bring the answers to further technical needs in the food and medical sectors: white antistatic materials, metal detectable parts, anti-radiation and antimicrobial materials, autoclavable materials and the most innovative hybrid materials in which the chemical, physical and mechanical properties of multiple polymers are combined.
More than 5,000 customers know Plastics & Seals is a reliable partner, highly experienced and equipped with the most advanced technology, capable of providing technical offices with high level of support for the design of plastic components that improve the performance of food machinery.
The details – both plastic components and seals – are entirely manufactured by our highly qualified staff with the most advanced technologies, including several 5-axes turning and milling centers and a metrology room with Zeiss equipment.
Plastics & Seals’ product specialists will provide special guidance on each application and project area.
