Injection Molding Engineering Plastics 

Engineered plastics are a group of thermoplastics with physical properties that allow for prolonged performance in demanding environments. In some cases, they can even replace metals or ceramics.

Engineering Plastic Applications

In comparison with more widely used commodity plastics, engineered plastics have better mechanical and thermal properties as well as heightened resistance to chemicals and wear. Uses for engineered plastics include:

  • Structural applications
  • Gears
  • Bearings
  • Electronic devices

Engineering Plastic Types

Engineered plastics are typically produced in small quantities and tend to be more expensive. Common types of these plastics include:

  • Polyamides
  • Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene
  • Polyesters
  • Polycarbonates
  • Acetals
