Engineering Plastics

What are engineered plastics? Engineered plastics are high-performance plastics designed for uses that require extreme durability or heat resistance. They are found in a variety of products, from car components to medical implants. Engineered plastics have an entire array of benefits to offer, and in many cases can effectively replace metals or ceramics.

Each engineered plastic has unique physical and mechanical properties, which vary depending on the ingredients used to make it. Engineered Plastics are designed to meet the needs of a wide range of industries and applications. Engineered plastics offer many benefits over standard polymers. The material properties of an engineered plastic can be altered by adding fillers, modifying the molecular structure or changing the processing methods used in the production of the polymer. Laird Plastics® has the largest inventory of Engineering Plastics Rods, Tubes and Shapes in North America.
