Engineering plastics English name: engineering-plastics […]

Engineering plastics English name: engineering-plastics, engineering plastics [2] refers to industrial plastics used as industrial parts or casing materials, plastics with excellent strength, impact resistance, heat resistance, hardness and aging resistance. . It is defined by the Japanese industry as "a high-performance plastic that can be used for structural and mechanical parts, and its heat resistance is above 100 °C, mainly used in industry."

Compared with general-purpose plastics, engineering plastics can achieve higher requirements in terms of mechanical properties, durability, corrosion resistance, heat resistance, etc., and are more convenient to process and can replace metal materials. Engineering plastics are widely used in electrical and electronic, automotive, construction, office equipment, machinery, aerospace and other industries. It has become an international trend to replace steel and plastic.

Engineering plastics are high-performance polymer materials that can be used as structural materials to withstand mechanical stresses over a wide temperature range and used in harsh chemical and physical environments. They have good mechanical properties and dimensional stability. It can maintain its excellent performance at high and low temperatures and can be used as a plastic for engineering structural parts. Such as ABS, nylon, polysulfone and so on.
