material 
selection 

When designing a product it is absolutely crucial that nothing is left to chance when selecting which materials will be used in its construction.  We have put together a helpful guide of the main polymers we fabricate from to help with the selection process.

01

PE-HD...

…is a highly cost effective, lightweight polyethylene thermoplastic offering excellent chemical resistance accompanied with low moisture absorption… 

PE HD
PP H
02

PP-H...

…is a homopolymer polypropylene based material which offers greater stiffness and chemical resistance than copolymer polypropylene…

03

PP-C...

…is a copolymer polypropylene. Whilst not as rigid as PP-H it offers superior rigidity and heat resistance to PE-HD…

PP C
PVDF 2
04

PVDF...

…is an incredibly stable material.  It combines high density, high strength and high chemical resistance with a very low moisture absorption…
