Allegheny Performance Plastics is your partner for imagining and manufacturing technically advanced functional parts made with high-performance, high-temperature polymers for demanding automotive environments. We develop many proprietary manufacturing and injection molding techniques to fulfill the demanding quality requirements of the automotive industry, supplying some of the largest automobile Tier I and Tier II suppliers with parts for legacy engine technologies, as well as next-generation E-mobility platforms.

Found in the powertrain and transmission systems of automobiles, over the road trucks, and off-highway equipment, most of our engineered high-performance polymer parts can withstand high-temperature applications and are designed to replace metal components. This metal-to-plastic conversion leads to low friction, reduced wear, weight, space, and costs.

Our automotive certifications include:

  • IATF 16949: IATF 16949 is the international ISO technical specification for automotive quality management systems. It prevents defects and reduces variation and waste in the automotive industry supply chain.

Real-World Results With High-Performance Polymers

We’re one of few high-performance plastics component suppliers in the world with the capability to do high-volume, precision injection molding of Torlon® parts. Our tribology testing capabilities allow us to go from design to prototype to high-volume production much more rapidly than our competition.

Additionally, our automotive plastic molding expertise and in-house support speed your timeline, control costs, and ensure a smooth workflow. Check out this case study to learn how our automotive plastic injection molding capabilities helped a transmission component supplier eliminate a potential failure mode.

Looking to replace metal with high-temperature polymer parts, save money by substituting Vespel® with Torlon®, or design the next-generation all-electric or hybrid-electric components?

We’ll work with you to meet your specs as well as your standards, timeline, and budget.
