High-Performance Plastics

High-performance plastics are characterised by the fact that one or more material properties stand out particularly.


Special properties are e.g:

  • High continuous temperature of usage
  • Extreme temperature resistance
  • Electrical conductivity
  • Outstanding chemical resistance
  • Frequent sterilization
  • High strength


High-performance plastics are frequently used in the automotive sector: For these special and rapidly evolving requirements, plastics are used that are resistant even under extreme conditions. Plastics must be able to withstand several extreme conditions at once: High temperatures in the engine, durability and attractiveness in the interior and high strength in the body.

Hardly any other industry is so driven by innovation and poses such high challenges to functionality and design. Plastic components are enormously important for implementing designs while complying with the latest regulations and still being able to operate efficiently. Many of the requirements, e.g. weight savings, can only be achieved by using high-performance plastics.

If these properties are required for your products, the solution may be to use high-performance plastics. We will advise you on the choice of materials like PEEK, PPS, PPSU, PES, etc. to ensure an optimal price-performance ratio for your premium products.
