Nylon

Very strong, nylon can be machined and will take a fine thread. It is also slippery and can be used to make washers, spacers and bushes.

Acrylic

Comes in a range of thicknesses, colours and can be opaque or transparent. There are two types of acrylic, extruded that is cheaper and has a very plastic nature or cast which machines better but is harder and less flexible. Suitable for ‘point of sale’ and artistic applications.

PVC and uPVC

Stiff, hard, tough lightweight plastic. uPVC is stabilised for outside use and is ideal for plastic ductwork and plastic pipes. Plasticised PVC is used for flexible applications such as insulating – cables.

Polyethylene

This plastic has a range of uses from chemical tanks to gas pipes. The plastics can be injection moulded or extruded and is available in two forms. High-density polyethylene (HDPE) is a hard rigid plastic. A low-density grade (LDPE) is tough and flexible.

Polypropylene

Polypropylene is a tough, cheap plastic; it has a slightly waxy feel. It can be bent repeatedly without breaking. Used for Medical equipment, chemical tanks, ductwork and livestock applications.

Polycarbonate

Used for making eye protection, machine guards and riot shields. It is not as hard as acrylic and can be cut easily but it will absorb impacts.
