Specialty and smart polymer materials are suitable for engineering processes with exceptional mechanical properties, such as stiffness, toughness, tensile strength, and low creep. These polymers are ideal for structural applications such as gears, auto parts, the outer covering of electronic devices, and high-strength composites. For that, explore our thermosets, thermoplastics and 3D printing filaments.
Our thermosetting polymers, or thermosets, can be irreversibly hardened by curing and molding into the final shape. For these applications, we offer:
Thermoplastic polymers have other unique properties, such as thermal processability allowing them to be reshaped at elevated temperatures. They are commonly used injection molding and extrusion. Thermoplastic polymers are also used to reinforce anisotropic composite materials that function as artificial muscles, or actuators, that reversibly contract, expand or rotate through external stimuli. Examples include:
We provide a wide selection of 3D printing polymer filaments to accommodate your additive manufacturing applications. Fabricated for all types of 3D printing technologies, our polymers allow for quick printing, minimal nozzle clogging, and low warping for the rapid design, prototyping and manufacturing of your end products.
