Engineering Plastics

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. In comparison to widely used commodity plastics for packaging as PE, PP, PVC, engineering plastics are chosen in case of higher requirements in mechanical strength or thermal resistance, but are not as sophisticated and expensive as high temperature plastics.
