Performance Plastics thermoplastic injection molding

market Industrial

From precision molded high temperature thermoplastic seals to gears we incorporate unique materials and processes to create high-volume, custom-engineered solutions. We are particularly adept at creating components which need to excel in high temperature or aggressive chemical environments or where lubricity, wear, and dielectric properties are important.

High Temperature and Corrosion Resistant Thermoplastic Components Improve Performance

Thermoplastic Sealing Surfaces, Gaskets And Rings Excel In Harsh Environments

We leverage our deep understanding of high performance thermoplastic materials including PEEK, PFA, FEP, Torlon, Ultem to create more reliable, better sealing, longer wearing and more cost effective components.  They are used in a variety of industrial applications including those in harsh chemical and high temperature environments.  We have helped design and injection mold a wide variety of critical thermoplastic sealing components including:

  • Poppet Seals
  • Bearing Seals
  • Face Seals
  • Guide Rings
  • Mechanical Seals
  • O-Rings
  • Plunger Seals
  • Back Up Rings
  • Pusher Rings
  • Rider Rings
  • Seal Cages
  • Valve Discs
  • Valve Seats
  • V-Rings

Metal To Plastic Conversion

Metal to thermoplastic conversions and metal replacement applications are areas of expertise at Performance Plastics.  Tremendous advances in the development and performance attributes of high end thermoplastics and fiber loaded compounds are enabling the conversion of metal to thermoplastic components including those subject to significant torque loadings, such as gears.  Advantages of thermoplastic components relative to their metal analogues include, but are not limited to, weight, noise and cost reduction, improved quality, enhanced performance and can be self lubricating. For more information, please refer to the following articles and case study.  Sample projects include:

  • Spray nozzles
  • Low and high pressure hydraulic poppets
  • Sealing applications
  • Gears
  • Valves
  • Spools
  • Bearings
