Metal Finishing

The use of plastics in all manufacturing applications is consistently replacing metal as a preferred material for many industrial applications. Mechanical and engineered plastics, along with new composites and advanced plastics, have improved, making them more widely used for parts and components.

We offer a variety of different materials for multiple construction and building uses:

High wear resistance
Corrosion and moisture resistance
Temperature resistance
Low thermal conductivity
Low deformation
High strength to weight ratio
Machinability

Custom Plastics and More has seen how advancements in the quality of plastics has improved on these properties, increasing the strength to weight ratio and high wear. As a result, plastics have become the material of choice for many components, replacing perishable materials like wood, fiber, and other metals, especially for applications that are exposed to moisture or corrosive materials, extreme temperatures or high wear.

Machined plastic components from Custom Plastics and More do not rust, expand or contract with temperature changes, or wear out as quickly as metal components. And, with improved strength to weight ratios, equipment manufactured with plastic parts is lightweight, durable and more fuel efficient than equipment manufactured with metal parts.

As a distributor of machined, engineered and advanced plastics, Custom Plastics and More can assist you in selecting the best material for your application and can provide materials that will perform better than most metals in your application.
