Engineering Plastics

Engineering plastics have a whole array of benefits to offer, and in many cases can effectively replace metals or ceramics. Moreover, engineered plastic components often provide the only alternative when it comes to the implementation of unusual technical applications - which makes them a true pacemaker for innovation in every key of industry.


Laird plastics offers a wide variety of engineering plastic and thermoplastic polymers, which possess better mechanical and/or thermal properties than the more widely used standard plastics such as polystyrene, PVC and Polyethylene.
