Metal to Plastics, Emerging Technologies & Markets
Our expertise and design capabilities within the field of metal replacement to plastics, places Gadac Plastics as an industry leader ensuring that our customers are getting full benefits from improving technology and material developments.
Specific plastic resin manufacturers are constantly developing and introducing new engineering grade resins that offer lighter weight, greater strength, and improved chemical resistance along with improved cosmetic and economic properties that are desirable for a particular product.
Choosing the correct plastic material and additives for your project requires a working knowledge of many different polymers. We can evaluate the function of your project to ensure the necessary physical, chemical and environmental properties are met, as well as eliminate the cost you would pay for unnecessary additives within the resin.
There are advanced plastic materials that have a higher specific strength than some metals. Metal parts replacement and metal to plastic conversions provide lower cost, lower weight, save on energy consumption and provide many other performance advantages.
As an example, PEEK materials perform better in steam than stainless steel.
