Polymer play key role in nearly every sector of the economy. As the demand for environmentally-friendly and durable plastic increases, key players in the industry adopt technology to meet the demand.


There is steady improvement in the development of engineering plastics. This increases with upgrading in the nature as well as method of production. Besides, engineering plastics have wide temperature range, flexible, chemical stability, better thermal properties, fire safety, and wide uses.


Early Engineering Materials

Before the introduction of engineering plastics, materials like iron, tin, zinc, brass, wood, and copper. The inception of plastics steadily replace wood and metals in engineering work.

 Engineering Plastics

As technology increases, high performance materials like polyphenylenes, polyoxadiazoles, polyperfluorotriazines, and inorganic materials like polysilazanes and boron polymers enter the industry.


Current Engineering Plastics And Types

Engineering plastics are high performance plastic materials with sustained application in structural uses. It has better chemical resistance as well as resistance to vibration and shock.


Engineering plastics include nylons, phenolics, acetals, fluorocarbons, poly-phenylene oxide, ABS, the urethane elastomers, the acrylics, polyvinyl chloride, and polyolefins.


Existing Problem of Engineering Plastics

Engineering plastics are mostly produced in small quantity. Though engineering plastics are strong, generally, they are not as strong as metal. They are also less ductile as metal.


How To Solve The Existing Problem

There is steady innovative approach in the production of engineering plastics with required materials. The materials are durable, resistance to chemical, and lightweight.

Moreover, there are machines that produce a reasonable amount of quality engineering plastics. The materials are economical and easy to use for different applications.


Application of Engineering Plastics

Engineering plastics have wide range of applications. Some of the categories of applications are:


1. Mechanical Stress Application

Use for couples, cams, gears and other parts. Materials for this application are acetals, polycarbonates, nylons, and fluorocarbons.  This is suitable for application such as:
