In many application cases thermoplastics are excellently suited as substitutes for metals and offer many advantages at the same time.
Thermoplastics have a low mass, better insulation and produce less noise. They offer higher functional integration, allow a better design to product differentiation and can thus usually significantly lower the costs of the whole product manufacturing process.
Special corrosion measures or later coatings can for example be dispensed with.
Advanced plastics today achieve an elasticity coefficient of almost 30,000 MPa!
Lowered system costs are one of the main reasons for substituting metal with plastic.
Successful metal substitution projects require special rules which should be observed during the product creation process.
We will gladly advise you in selecting the material and manufacturing process best suited to your product.
