Final Advanced Materials offers the supply and machining of a wide range of plastics. Our team of experts can help you choose the right plastic for your needs.
Plastic is a material obtained by polymerisation of compounds (ethylene, propylene, styrene, etc.) derived from oil. It is formulated to satisfy increased requirements in terms of quality, reliability and safety. Many types of plastic exist, and these come in various forms. Plastic can be moulded, shaped, generally while hot and under pressure, to produce a semi-finished product or an object.
- Thermoplastic adhesives
- Optics and electronics
- Chemicals and health
- Good viscoelasticity
- High durability
- Easy to manipulate
Types of plastics
POM or polyoxomethylene is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic known for its excellent mechanical properties, moisture resistance and low friction coefficient. It is often used in mechanical construction, the motor vehicle industry, the textile industry and the food production industry.
PA (Polyamide or Nylon) is a low-density semi-crystalline thermoplastic with exceptional wear resistance, thermal stability, and temperature/impact resistance. It finds applications in injection molded parts, films, fibers, cables, and pipes in industries like automotive, electronics, construction, and packaging.
PEHD (Polyethylene High-Density) is a widely used plastic due to its resistance, durability, flexibility, and transparency. It has high tensile strength and is commonly used in the water and sanitation industries.
PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene), also known as Teflon®, is a fluorine-based synthetic polymer with high resistance to heat, chemicals, and excellent anti-adhesive properties. It is utilized in coatings, sealing joints, cables, industrial pipes, and technical parts in the chemical industry. Rulon® is a trademarked reinforced PTFE plastic known for its wear resistance, corrosion resistance, and low friction.
PVC (polyvinyl chloride) plastic is a stable, inert and flexible polymer. PVC is easy to work and to mould, resistant to moisture, chemicals, abrasion and impacts. Common uses of PVC include piping, door and window profiles and coatings.
Polypropylene is a thermoplastic polymer widely used in the manufacture of plastic products. It is known for its remarkable properties: its inertia to chemical attacks, its chemical and thermal resistance and its suitability at very high temperatures. Examples of its use include the motor vehicle industry, the food production industry and the chemicals industry due to its resistance to bacteria and to chemicals.
Polyetheretherketone is a high-performance thermoplastic polymer, renowned for its heat, chemical and wear resistance and its dimensional stability. PEEK resists temperatures as high as 260°C and is known for its excellent mechanical properties, including its fatigue resistance, rigidity and stress resistance.
Bakelite®, the commercial name for synthetic resin produced from phenols and formaldehyde, is a thermosetting material invented in 1907 by the Belgian chemist Leo Baekeland. It is known for its heat and electrical resistance. Currently it is used above all for motor vehicle parts and in aeronautics.
We also supply a wide range of glass-epoxy composites. Final has the machining facilities to ensure a quality that meets your requirements.
