By Materials

We have a extremely wide verity of plastics to choose from. When you need clear plastic, thick plastic, durable plastic, or degradable. Any of these plastics we sell can have added value to the size or shape you need or request. We have listed below a short list of some of the most sold products.

 

In the plastics industry, we typically refer to this group as “mechanicals”. They can also be called engineering thermoplastics or industrial plastics. It’s not a complete list, but it does cover the most popular material.

 

IMPORTANT! Many times, plastic is referenced by a trade name rather than its material, such as Plexiglass® versus acrylic. It may also be abbreviated, so Polytetrafluoroethylene becomes PTFE, or it’s common trade name, Teflon. You may also just run into general description or application (clear tubing, gaskets, hanger clips, etc.). While we may

not stock or source a prospect’s exact brand, we will likely have an equal alternative. Total Plastics has distribution rights with all the top mechanical plastic suppliers. If it’s made, we can probably get it.

  • Polyamides

    Polyamide-imide (PAI)

     

    Color:

    Natural

     

    Description:

    With its versatile performance capabilities and proven use in a broad range of applications, DURATRON polyamide-imide (PAI) shapes are offered in extruded, injection molded, and compression molded grades.

    DURATRON is the highest performing, melt processable plastic. It has superior resistance to elevated temperatures. It is capable of performing under severe stress conditions at continuous temperatures to 500°F (260°C). Parts machined from Torlon stock shapes provide greater compressive strength and higher impact resistance than most advanced engineering plastics.

    DURATRON PAI’s extremely low coefficient of linear thermal expansion and high creep resistance deliver excellent dimensional stability over its entire service range. DURATRON is an amorphous material with a Tg (glass transition temperature) of 537°F (280°C). DURATRON stock shapes are post-cured using procedures developed jointly by BP Amoco and Quadrant. This eliminates the need for additional curing by the end user in most situations. A post-curing cycle is sometimes recommended for components fabricated from extruded shapes where optimization of chemical resistance and/or wear performance is required.

    For large shapes or custom geometries like tubular bar, compression molded DURATRON shapes offer designers the greatest economy and flexibility. Another benefit of selecting a compression molded grade is that resins are cured, or “imidized” prior to molding which eliminates the need to post-cure shapes or parts fabricated from compression molded shapes.

    Popular extrusion and injection molding grades of DURATRON are offered as compression molded shapes. Typically, you can identify a compression molded grade as having a second digit of “5” in the product name.

     

    DURATRON® Grades:

    DURATRON® T4203 PAI, DURATRON® T4301 PAI, DURATRON® T5030 PAI, DURATRON® T7130 PAI, DURATRON® T4503 PAI, DURATRON® T4501 PAI, DURATRON® T4435 PAI, DURATRON® T5530 PAI, DURATRON® T4275 PAI, DURATRON® T7503 PAI

     

    Applications:

    Chip Nests and Sockets

    High Temperature Electrical Connectors

    Labyrinth Seals

    Bearing Cages

    Can Mandrel

     

    Features:

    Maintains strength and stiffness to 500°F (260°C)

    Minimal expansion rate to 500°F (260°C)

    Excellent wear resistance in bearing grades

    Able to endure harsh thermal, chemical and stress conditions

     

    Notes: As DURATRON PAI has a relatively high moisture absorption rate, parts used in high temperature service or made to tight tolerances should be kept dry prior to installation. Thermal shock resulting in deformation can occur if moisture laden parts are rapidly exposed to temperatures above 400°F (205°C).

  • Polyamides

    Polyamide-imide (PAI)

     

    Color:

    Natural

     

    Description:

    With its versatile performance capabilities and proven use in a broad range of applications, DURATRON polyamide-imide (PAI) shapes are offered in extruded, injection molded, and compression molded grades.

    DURATRON is the highest performing, melt processable plastic. It has superior resistance to elevated temperatures. It is capable of performing under severe stress conditions at continuous temperatures to 500°F (260°C). Parts machined from Torlon stock shapes provide greater compressive strength and higher impact resistance than most advanced engineering plastics.

    DURATRON PAI’s extremely low coefficient of linear thermal expansion and high creep resistance deliver excellent dimensional stability over its entire service range. DURATRON is an amorphous material with a Tg (glass transition temperature) of 537°F (280°C). DURATRON stock shapes are post-cured using procedures developed jointly by BP Amoco and Quadrant. This eliminates the need for additional curing by the end user in most situations. A post-curing cycle is sometimes recommended for components fabricated from extruded shapes where optimization of chemical resistance and/or wear performance is required.

    For large shapes or custom geometries like tubular bar, compression molded DURATRON shapes offer designers the greatest economy and flexibility. Another benefit of selecting a compression molded grade is that resins are cured, or “imidized” prior to molding which eliminates the need to post-cure shapes or parts fabricated from compression molded shapes.

    Popular extrusion and injection molding grades of DURATRON are offered as compression molded shapes. Typically, you can identify a compression molded grade as having a second digit of “5” in the product name.

     

    DURATRON® Grades:

    DURATRON® T4203 PAI, DURATRON® T4301 PAI, DURATRON® T5030 PAI, DURATRON® T7130 PAI, DURATRON® T4503 PAI, DURATRON® T4501 PAI, DURATRON® T4435 PAI, DURATRON® T5530 PAI, DURATRON® T4275 PAI, DURATRON® T7503 PAI

     

    Applications:

    Chip Nests and Sockets

    Able to endure harsh thermal, chemical and stress conditions

     

    Notes: As DURATRON PAI has a relatively high moisture absorption rate, parts used in high temperature service or made to tight tolerances should be kept dry prior to installation. Thermal shock resulting in deformation can occur if moisture laden parts are rapidly exposed to temperatures above 400°F (205°C).
