ABS is a low-cost engineering plastic that is easy to machine and fabricate. ABS is an ideal material for structural applications when impact resistance, strength, and stiffness are required. It is widely used for machining pre-production prototypes since it has excellent dimensional stability and is easy to paint and glue. Natural (beige) and black are FDA compliant for use in food processing applications.

An acrylic plastic sheet is completely transparent, flexible, and has great resistance to breakage. It is an excellent material that can replace glass for windows, doors, partitions, and skylights. It is lightweight, with only half the weight of glass, and it is virtually unaffected by nature. The acrylic sheet is supplied in a variety of transparent, translucent, and opaque colors, as well as colorless transparent. The material is also supplied in a number of surface patterns. Acrylic plastic can be thermoformed or molded economically to create shapes suitable for a variety of applications.

Acetal is characterized by a low coefficient of friction and good wear properties-especially in wet environments. Because acetal absorbs minimal amounts of moisture, its physical properties remain constant in a variety of environments. Low moisture absorption gives excellent dimensional stability for close-tolerance machined parts.
Acetron® GP is DSM's general-purpose copolymer acetal and is the only porosity free acetal product available today. Investments in process technology by DSM now provide the performance and machinability of acetal without center core porosity.
Arena Board is ideal for hockey rink applications, including dasher boards, kick plates, and official lines. Arena Board exhibits the properties of high impact strength, abrasion-resistance, and low coefficient of friction. The material is also moisture, stain, and abrasion-resistant. The material’s durability and UV stabilization make it ideally suited for the rigors of harsh hockey rink environments.
Applications: High Impact strength Abrasion-resistant Moisture resistant Stain-resistant Low coefficient of friction UV stabilized for outdoor environments.
Acrylic Sheet bullet-resisting glazing material is a lightweight, crystal-clear, non-laminated alternative for UL-752 Class I security applications. The material offers cost savings when compared with bullet-resisting glass or poly-carbonate of the same UL class rating. This version of the Plexiglas SB sheet is listed by Underwriters Laboratories as resisting medium-power small arms in both indoor and outdoor applications.
Cutting Board material is made from a special high-density Polyethylene plastic. This unique material is specially formulated for the manufacture of quality thermoplastic cutting boards. Cutting board is a "long-life" cutting surface specifically designed never to dull knife blades.
Additional outstanding features of the cutting board include acid resistance, odorless, tasteless, will not chip, peel, crack or warp and will wipe clean with a damp cloth. It is non-porous, non-absorbent, stain-resistant ,and always stays white.
Applications: Cutting board is available in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and thicknesses. "Dishwasher safe" cutting boards for cheese, fruit, meat, vegetables, bread, and fish.
High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE): is a high-impact strength and high density polyethylene. HDPE has excellent tensile strength, energy absorption, abrasion resistance, and resistance to stress cracks.
High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE): Business Machine Parts, Cams/Washers/Shims, Guides/Wear Plates, Laboratory Vessels, Low-Speed Bearings, Nuclear Storage Containers, Packing/Rings in Chemical Applications, Roll Stand Bearings, Rotors/Blades, Skids/Deflector Plates and Tank/Chute/Bin Linings.
UHMW is an excellent general purpose wear material that meets FDA, USDA, for pharmaceutical processing and food contact applications. Standard colors are Natural (White) and Black, custom colors are also available.
Polycarbonate (Lexan) is a thermoplastic that has an excellent balance of clarity and toughness while displaying a wide range of high-heat deflection temperatures. Toughness is the most outstanding feature of polycarbonate; for applications such as safety shields and sports equipment, this durable material is without equal.
Half the weight of glass, acrylic mirror is shatter resistant with extensive design flexibility. It may be cut into intricate shapes, drilled, sanded, polished, machined, cold-formed for curved shapes.
