Engineering Plastics are designed with strength, toughness and resilience in mind. With a vast range of available products, there is an Engineering Plastic suitable for numerous applications - from temperature, chemical and impact resistance; low moisture absorption; dimensional stability; self lubrication, to low flammability.
Righton Blackburns stocks a full range of Engineering Plastics products, including:
A partially crystalline polyamide with good strength, toughness and resilience. This is particularly important under impact loading or at low temperatures. Available in round bar from 5mm - 320mm.
This material has a higher melting point than Nylon 6 and, in addition, better mechanical properties, greater hardness and low water absorption. This makes it ideal for components which need to meet close tolerances. Available in round bar from 5mm - 250mm and ¼” - 2".
Nylon 66 Mos2Filled
The presence of the Mos filler results in greater wear resistance and lower coefficient of friction. Stiffness, tensile strength and temperature resistance are also improved. Available in round bar from 6mm - 250mm and ¼” - 2".
A semi-crystalline copolymer with a good all-round balance of engineering properties. Operates continuously at 100°C and has the added advantage of low moisture absorption, good impact resistance and dimensional stability. Available in round bar from 4mm - 250mm and ¼” - 2".
With a unique combination of properties, PETP offers better wear and abrasion resistance than nylon or acetal, wet or dry. It also brings benefits of significantly better dimensional stability, low thermal expansion rate, good electrical properties, and is food grade rated. Available in round bar from 10mm - 200mm.
As the most widely used fluoropolymer, PTFE has outstanding chemical resistance, low flammability and high degree of resistance to weathering. Available in round bar from 4mm - 90mm.
PEEK - Ketron/Tecapeek
An outstanding advanced material for demanding applications where excellent mechanical performance under extreme conditions is a pre-requisite. Available in round bar from 4 - 200mm.
Polyphenylene Sulphide (PPS)
A reinforced, self lubricating polyphenylene sulphide for demanding applications. A cost effective alternative to PEEK in some applications. Available in round bar from 4mm - 100mm.
Polyamide Imide (PAI)
A high performance material with exceptional mechanical properties, even when operating at temperatures of 260°C. Available in round bar from ¼” - 2½”.
