Replacing Metal

For 50 years we have worked in OEM supply chains replacing metal components with engineered plastic components to contribute commercial gains.

Better Value & Longer Lasting Components

OEMs can develop competitive advantages by replacing metal components with high-performance plastic components – they are a more productive and cost effective choice, outperforming metal components over a wide spread of loads, speeds and environments.

Part life can be increased in demanding applications with the low coefficient of friction and inherent wear resistance of engineered plastic components.

Avoid Expensive Downtime & Component Failure

Replace metal parts with plastic for greater durability. Plastic components offer resistance to chemicals, impacts, high pressure, extreme temperatures and autoclaving. They neither contaminate, deteriorate, degrade or corrode easily, unlike metal or steel components.

Improve Performance

Weight, improved energy efficiency and cost savings can be achieved with high performance engineered plastic components – they are much lighter-weight, typically 6 times lighter than steel and half the weight of aluminium.

From Metal To Plastic

Metals are currently used in many applications to combat aggressive operating conditions, but they are heavy, loud and require considerable lubrication.  If you rely on metal fabrication or steel fabrication, talk to us about how we can make plastic alternatives that withstand the elements and make your application perform even better.
