Plastic materials

Plastics come in many types and sizes. Each material has its own specific characteristics, processing techniques and applications. As a specialist in plastic processing, we can process any type of plastic sheet material for you, whether it is aesthetic plastics (design plastics) or technical plastics. But, of course, the most important question is: which type of plastic is best for your specific application? We will be more than happy to advise you.

Many types of plastic

The range of plastics is enormous and the applications are extremely diverse. It's also good to know that: different types of plastic are often known by several different names. Plastic materials with which we often process and use in our made-to-measure products are:

But you can also come to us for PS, PP (polypropylene), ABS, POM, PA, nylon, PE and other technical plastics.

Benefits of thermoplastics

We work exclusively with thermoplastics, such as acrylic, polycarbonate, PETG and PVC. This is because these plastics become soft when exposed to high temperatures. It makes them easy to mould into shape. They can also be shaped after processing. Another important advantage is that thermoplastics, unlike thermosets, can easily be recycled.

Which type of material will you choose?

You have an idea or a (detailed) design for a specific application, but which type of material is best for it? Based on our knowledge and experience of various sectors, we would be happy to advise you on the possibilities and the advantages and disadvantages of different plastics and together we will choose the best material for your made-to-measure product.

If you would like more information on the plastic materials we process or advice on making a choice, we will be happy to help you.
