Applications

Synthetic plastics have a relatively short history, but today they are used everywhere. We manufacture and convert raw plastic for insulating, absorption, barriers and more. Here are some common products we fabricate for customers:

Signage and Signage Enclosures

Our material technicians cut and shape flat, multi-dimensional, and channel lettering signage from durable plastics.

Wear Surfaces

Immediate touching or rubbing between two parts will often lead to functionality issues. We convert plastic materials into guards and wear surfaces to avoid damage from friction.

Sound Dampening

Plastic sound dampeners can help reduce sound waves from vibrating adjoining parts of the equipment or device being used. Excess sound waves can cause parts to separate, fracture or even break completely.

Electrical Insulators

To avoid burning, melting and malfunction in the end product, we cut and shape plastic to insulate electrical charges. Electricity from uninsulated sources can cause damage to nearby equipment and humans.

Our material technicians use well over a dozen plastic materials and formulations, including:

  • ABS
  • EVA
