Plastic materials for moulding

We mould plastic, TPE rubber and two-component parts

We mould plastic, TPE rubber and two-component parts

Our production department has 18 injection moulding machines (Arburg and Fanuc) for one and two-component moulding operations, and 2 blow moulding machines. The fully electric fleet of machinery (Arburg and Fanuc machines) is upgraded regularly with the latest models, enabling us to mould every type of plastic and always obtain optimal results.

Be it a component for the food, medical or automation sector, during a prior consultation we identify the most suitable material and carry out the moulding operations on our premises, optimising timescales and providing customers with superior standards in terms of precision, durability and strength.

Most requested moulded plastics

The plastic materials that are currently the most requested for moulding operations range from the expensive PEEK through to nylon 66 and TPE rubber. We can mould more than 60 different types of plastic, and the choice of one over another depends on the design and application of the moulded component.

It is thanks to the initial consultation that we can choose the best plastic material for the job and guarantee moulded parts of superior quality.

PEEK

Polyether ether ketone, otherwise known as PEEK, is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic with high plastic-mechanical resistance up to 260°. It is mainly used to produce components for the automation, automotive and military sectors.

Polycarbonate

This is a thermoplastic polymer that is resistant to chemicals, is easy to work with, and is stable in terms of dimensions. It is easy to sterilise in autoclaves or using gamma rays, therefore is widely used in the medical sector.

Polyethylene

This material has very low moisture absorption, a low coefficient of friction, is extremely lightweight, resistant to abrasion, and suited to the food sector in particular.

ABS

Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene is a thermoplastic polymer that enables the production of components that are light but very strong. Most automation components are made of this material.

TPE

These are thermoplastic elastomers, sometimes referred to as thermoplastic rubbers, which are easy to recycle, but in particular they have less impact on the environment and employees as they do not release phthalates during moulding operations. They can be sterilised in autoclaves so are used in the food and medical sectors.

Polyamides

Known with the initials PA, polyamides are polymers with high mechanical strength and excellent dimensional stability. They are mainly used in the automation sector, and their performance can be improved by adding fibreglass and additives. At TEKSAE we process every type of polyamide, from the traditional nylon 66 to the innovative PPA, which is an excellent alternative to metal components, and PPO, a polyamide and p-phenylene oxide-based polymer compound.

PPS

Polyphenylene sulphide is a high-performance, semi-crystalline thermoplastic with excellent mechanical properties, resistance up to 240° and high chemical resistance to solvents. It is mainly used to produce seals, electric connectors and valves. It is also suitable for contact with drinking water.

PSU

PSU is a transparent, high-strength thermoplastic material. It is used to produce artificial membranes, feeding bottles and food containers. It is a non-toxic material.

POM

Semi-crystalline polymer, often known as acetal resin, with good mechanical properties, resistant to wear and tear and low moisture absorption. Used in the food sector because it is suitable for contact with food.

Polypropylene

Semi-crystalline polymer. Abbreviated to PP it is one of the commonest plastics used in daily life, because it is used to make domestic equipment, plastic cups and plates, and components for the automotive and automation sectors.

PBT

PBT is a particular kind of polyester that is heat-resistant and has good mechanical properties. It is mainly used in the automotive industry and for domestic appliance components.

Ixef® PARA

A plastic compound reinforced with fibreglass and with high resistance to mechanical stress. It has a glossy reflective finish. With its low weight, Ixef® PARA enables the creation of particularly complex but lightweight components. It is used to produce cups and components in contact with food and water.

PVDF

Polyvinylidene fluoride is a partially fluorinated thermoplastic polymer which is resistant to acids and oxidants, and is relatively cheap. It is widely used in the plumbing industry and the production of membranes and valves.

Entrust the moulding of your components to experts in the characteristics of each compound who can give you the right advice for your applications.
