Material Handling and Conveying

In today’s highly mobile, connected society, information isn’t the only thing that moves around quickly. Packages go through shipping terminals on high speed conveyors, being sorted by barcodes, food is packaged and sealed immediately after preparation to guarantee freshness in the local market and medical products are prepared in sterile environments to protect patient health while being shipped all over the world. All of these operations require the use of several kinds of plastics that help reduce down time, aid in noise abatement and keep lines contaminant free. Here are some commonly used products in these areas:

Nylon (Tecamid®, Tecast®, Nycast®/Nyoil® FG, Nylatron®)
PET-P (Tecapet®, Ertalyte®)
Polycarbonate (Makralon®, Tecanat®, Lexan®)
ABS (Tecaran®)
PBT (Polybutylene terephthalate, Hydex® 4101/41010L)
Acetal (Tecaform®, Delrin®)
Polypropylene (Tecafin®, Proteus®)
Polyurethane (Instantroll®)
PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene)
PEEK (Polyetheretherketone, Tecapeek®)
UHMW-PE (Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene, Tivar®)
Polyetherimide (Ultem® PEI, Tecapei®, Semitron®)
CPVC (Chlorinated polyvinyl chloride, Corzan®)
HDPE (High Density Polyethylene, Tecafine®)
LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene)
PPS (Polyphenylene Sulfide, Tecatron®, Techtron®, Ryton®)
Polystyrene High Impact
Polysulfone (Tecason® S)
PVC (Polyvinyl chloride, Type I or Type II)
PVDF (Polyvinylidene fluoride, Tecaflon ®, Solef®, Kynar®)
