A variety of factors drive conversion from traditional materials to thermoplastics. As the industry looks to reduce weight, component complexity, and part counts, while increasing sustainability, thermoplastics have increasingly become the material of choice.
Thermoplastics offer durable and robust alternatives for housings, coverings, and surfaces. Explore how thermoplastics can be used in place of other traditional materials.
Compared to like-sized fiberglass parts, thermoplastics are lighter, reducing the weight of finished assemblies, as well as VOC-free and 100% recyclable.
SEKISUI KYDEX will help you in your journey to convert to thermoplastics over traditional materials.
Thermoplastics offer more aesthetic options, including custom colour matching, wood grains, and surface finish effects that are more durable and will not swell, stain, and eventually delaminate when exposed to liquids.
Thermoplastic materials will not fray, dent, or ding, but will retain the base materials’ properties and durability, which can decrease replacement and out-of-service costs.
