Feasability check & Material research


Consider mechanical loads, aesthetics, and machinability when selecting a plastic. It’s important to identify friction and wear requirements, operating temperature ranges, and outdoor or chemical exposure.

Together with Maes insights your guaranteed to find the type of plastic your looking for.

Plastic characteristics

  • High Temperature Resistance
    Some plastics can withstand extreme temperatures without losing their shape or properties, which is essential in high-heat applications.
  • Impact Resistance
    Plastics can absorb shocks and impacts without breaking, making them excellent for protective applications.
  • Chemical Resistance
    Certain plastics are resistant to corrosive chemicals, making them suitable for use in laboratories, chemical industries, and chemical storage.
  • UV Resistance
    Some plastics can endure prolonged exposure to sunlight and ultraviolet radiation, making them suitable for outdoor applications.

  • Electrical Insulation
    Plastics insulate electricity well and are often used in electrical and electronic devices.
  • Biocompatibility
    Specific medical plastics are biocompatible, meaning they can be safely used in implants and medical devices without adverse reactions in the body.
  • Low Friction
    Plastics with low friction reduce wear and are suitable for sliding applications, such as bearings.
  • Water Resistance
    Some plastics are water-resistant, ideal for applications where moisture is a factor.
  • Thermal Insulation
    Plastics act as thermal barriers, justifying their use in insulation materials.
  • Sound Absorption
    They can absorb and reduce sound, making them suitable for sound control in architectural and industrial applications.
