CHEMICAL MANUFACTURING

Chemicals are prevalent in the creation of today's consumer and industrial goods. The chemical manufacturing industry offers unique challenges for plastics. Applications typically demand materials that are resistant to high temperatures and pressures, as well as corrosive chemicals. Applications include mechanical applications, such as conveyor belt rollers, bushings and plates, graphical applications such as safety signage, and see-through applications such as machinery guards.

Advantages of plastics

The advantages of plastics in chemical manufacturing are numerous. Plastics are much lighter than metal, which equate into better fuel economy and cheaper to manufacture parts. Additionally, the lighter weight aids in safer material handling. Plastics can be designed to be impact and dent resistant, and modified for improved strength. Corrosion resistance is one of the key advantages for the Chemical industry.

Materials Utilized Within Industry

Materials utilized for chemical environments include Acetal, Ultem, PEEK, PVC, Polypropylene, PVDF, PET and PTFE
