URETHANE

Economical plastic used in consumer electronics.  Exhibits rigidity, good impact

strength and hardness with chemical resistance and a glossy finish.


High clarity rigid plastic used in retail displays, light lenses and window glazing.

Comes in translucent and opaque colors.  Also known as Plexiglas.


High tensile strength, good impact and abrasion resistance.  Low co-efficient of

friction, high temperature and chemical resistance.  Ideal for machining.


Similar to acrylic in appearance with better impact resistance.  Can be cold-formed

without fracturing.  High clarity and also used for displays or lenses.


High clarity and excellent impact resistance.  Comes in clear and colors.  Also has

high temperature resistance.  Used in windshields.  Also known as Lexan.


LDPE - high impact resistance, low tensile strength and good moisture resistance.

HDPE - harder and stiffer than LDPE, good temperature and chemical resistance.


Rigid, semi-rigid and flexible with good weather and UV resistance.  Non flammable

with high corrosion resistance.  Good tensile and impact strength.


Economical crystal clear material used in displays.  Low

impact resistance.  Comes in clear and colors.


Plastic alternative to rubber.  Comes in various durometers

with good tensile strength and chemical resistance.


Comes in soft to hard grades.  Has good tensile and tear

strength with excellent impact resistance.  Used for auto trim.
