The selection of a plastic material for a specific application can be a difficult task. After careful consideration, the possibilities may be narrowed to two or three candidates and the final selection is then determined by testing.

The first and most important step in selecting a plastic material from the broad range of available materials (i.e., acrylic, polycarbonate, UHMW, Delrin, nylon, etc.) is to carefully define the requirements of the application, the physical properties required and the environment in which the material will need to perform.

The following list of questions or considerations should be used to define the application as completely as possible. In many cases, the answers to these criteria may be helpful to eliminate a particular plastic or an entire family of plastics. The more completely the application is defined, the better the chance of selecting the best material for the job.

Physical & Mechanical Considerations Thermal Considerations Chemical Considerations Bearing and Wear Considerations Other Miscellaneous Considerations After answers to the above list of questions (or at least some of them) have been determined, please contact us for further assistance. Our sales or engineering staff will be happy to help you choose one or more available plastic materials that will meet your requirements. We stock almost all of the materials we sell, so we can provide samples or small pieces for your evaluation.
