High-Temperature Polymer Components You Can Rely On


We know high-end polymers and know how to use them through the entire product development life cycle to develop high-temperature polymer solutions specific to cost-savings and performance. Backed by a commitment to quality, our rapid in-house prototyping and relentless problem-solving have made us a trusted partner to Fortune 500 original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and Tier 1 suppliers.

We work in close collaboration with global plastic suppliers to understand and investigate new and emerging high-temperature polymer materials, and our team can help you select the best material for your part in terms of general industrial application requirements and total value. Additionally, we conduct ongoing research to test limits, explore new ideas, and become even better at what we do. We also assist in providing testing/data for proper material selection based on the specific applications our customers are developing. We’re one of the only companies that’s equipped to do friction and wear testing in-house with a dedicated R&D engineer.

Whether you need to improve the reliability of your parts or reduce the number of components in your systems because your systems need to get smaller, we deliver the quality, performance, and timeliness your application demands. No other supplier can offer the same level of high-performance, high-temperature polymer manufacturing expertise, and in-house support.
