Plastics for your project
Technical plastic (engineering plastics)
Technical plastic may also go by the name of engineering plastics. It is most commonly used for items and constructions that place higher demands on the technical and chemical properties of the material in terms of its fire-retardant quality, heat and chemical resistance, shear strength and mechanical strength.
On the illustration below you will find a cetegoisation of the different plastics.
Among others we can produce your parts in the following types of technical plastics:
- PA6 [Nylon]
- PTFE [Teflon]
- PETP [Ertalyte®]
- POM-C [Polyoxymethylene-copolymer]
- POM-H [Polyoxymethylene-homopolymer]
- PEEK [Polyetheretherketone]
- PC [Polycarbonate]
- PET [Polyester]
- PVDF [Polyvinylidenefluoride]
- PEHD 300 [Polyethylene High Density]
- PEHD 500 [Polyethylene High Density]
- PEHD 1000 [Polyethylene High Density]
- PEHD 2000 [Polyethylene High Density]
There are multiple additives for technical plastic, which modify the product in order to attain specific results. The aim might be to increase strength, glide, friction, self-lubrication or anti-static properties.

In contrast to technical and chemical plastics, we have designated as 'creative plastic' a group of plastic materials that demonstrate particular visual qualities and creative opportunities.
Such qualities include colour, structure, shine, light transmission as well as UV- and weather-resistance. Creative plastic is often used for visual communication, shaping and design purposes.
At Induflex we can produce your creative products in plastic materials such as:
- PMMA [Acrylic]
- PS [Polystyrene]
- PVC [Polyvinyl chloride]
- PP [Polypropylene]
- PET [Axpet®]
- PETG [Vivak®]
- ABS [Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene]
- EVA foam [PE-foam/foam rubber]
