Performance Plastics thermoplastic injection molding

market Aerospace & Defense

Highly engineered carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastics formulations are capable of achieving higher strength to weight ratios than lightweight alloys such as aluminum and titanium. Consequently these fiber reinforced thermoplastic materials are gaining wider adoption in the aerospace and defense markets.

High Strength / Light Weight Injection Molded Components

We produce highly intricate mission critical parts utilizing high temperature and high strength thermoplastic resins, including glass and carbon fiber reinforced compounds, designed to function in critical and harsh environments. Sample projects include:

  • Weapon components
  • Transit, storage and impact protection
  • Extreme operating environment equipment
  • Housings
  • Fuse Covers
  • Metal replacement components
  • Turbine blade holders

Further, our program management expertise facilitates design, development, validation and qualification.  We strictly adhere to specifications and lot and batch traceability and are ISO 9001:2008 and ITAR registered.

Adhesive/Sealant Removal Tools

Endurosharp™ is a line of thermoplastic tools specifically designed to safely remove coatings, boots, tapes, sealants, adhesives, gap fillers and caulking materials as well as pressure sensitive (PSA) adhesive and tape residue without damaging underlying metallic surfaces (i.e. steel, titanium, and aluminum) and nonmetallic (i.e. composites surfaces such as fiberglass, carbon/graphite), glass and ceramic surfaces.  Our injection molded Torlon® tools provide significant performance benefits compared to other nonmetallic material removal tools.  For more information and a description of the benefits of using Endurosharp™ tools, please click here.
