Polymers for industry have managed to replace all kinds of traditional materials, mostly engineering applications thanks to their excellent mechanical and thermal properties.

Our Product Line:


(polyamide) is a natural and synthetic fiber plastic. It is possible to generate it with a chemical reaction due to its polymer compound. In the industry it is commonly known as Nylon and is considered a thermoplastic due to its properties. Nylon can be processed into different shapes and textures for various uses. In its classification you can find two types, nylon 6 and 66.


(polyacetal), is a partially crystalline thermoplastic with high mechanical resistance and rigidity. This polymer has good sliding and wear resistance properties as well as low moisture absorption. Its good dimensional stability and its excellent resistance to fatigue as well as its excellent machining properties by chip removal make Poms a versatile technical plastic, even for complex parts.


(polycarbonate) is an amorphous polymer from the polyester family. Due to its low degree of crystallinity, PC presents a high transparency. Plastic is distinguished by high mechanical strength, rigidity and hardness. In addition, the PC also has high resilience.


(polybutylene terephthalate) is an engineering thermoplastic polymer, which is widely used as an electrical insulator and in the electronics industry. It is a (semi) crystalline thermoplastic polymer. It is a type of polyester. PBT is resistant to solvents, shrinks very little during forming, is mechanically strong, heat resistant up to 150°C (or 200°C with fiberglass reinforcement), and can be treated with flame retardants to make it fireproof.


(methyl methacrylate) also known as acrylic or plexiglass is a clear polymer often used in sheet form as a lightweight or shatter-resistant alternative to glass. The same material can be used as a casting resin or in inks and coatings, among many other uses.


(acrilonitrilo butadieno estireno) es un plástico de ingeniería, debido a que cuya elaboración y procesamiento es más complejo que los plásticos comunes, como son las polioleofinas (polietileno, polipropileno). Los materiales de ABS tienen importantes propiedades en ingeniería, como buena resistencia mecánica y al impacto combinado con facilidad para el procesado.


(Thermo Plastic Vulcanized) are a series of high performance elastomers that combine the desirable characteristics of vulcanized rubber, such as flexibility and low compression, with the ease of processing of thermoplastics. It combines the typical performance of a thermosetting rubber together with the advantages of a thermoplastic compound. Snuggled in the middle of the mid-range cost and development spectrum of both thermoplastics and thermoset rubbers.


Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), also known as thermoplastic rubber, are high molecule materials that contain characteristics of rubber vulcanized at normal temperature and plastic when heated. This means that once the thermoplastic elastomer compounds are formed, they can be heated and reformed multiple times. The ability of thermoplastic elastomers to process like thermoplastics and mimic the performance and appearance of thermosetting rubbers has made them famous among plastic materials for a long time.


Thermoplastic polyurethanes are normally elastomers, which do not require vulcanization for processing. TPU is a block copolymer consisting of alternating sequences of hard and soft segments.


(Styrene Acrylonitrile) a co-polymer usually of 70 to 80% styrene and 20 to 30% acrylonitrile. It is a plastic that combines the clarity and rigidity of polystyrene with the hardness, strength, and resistance to heat and solvents of polyacrylonitrile.


Thermoplastic Polyester Elastomer (TPE-E or TPEE), also known as Thermoplastic Copolyester, is a class of multiblock copolymers or a physical blend of polymers (usually a plastic and rubber) that are composed of materials with both thermoplastic and elastomeric properties. Thermoplastic elastomers show both the typical advantages of rubbery and plastic material. The main difference between thermosetting elastomers and thermoplastic elastomers is the type of crosslinking in their structures. In fact, crosslinking is a critical structural factor contributing to high elastic properties. Crosslinking in thermosetting polymers is the covalent crosslinking created during the vulcanization process. On the other hand, crosslinking in polymers with thermoplastic elastomers is a weaker dipole or hydrogen crosslinking or takes place in one of the phases of the material.


(Polyethylene-octene) POEs guarantee excellent workability, are extrudable and mouldable, with excellent transparency, and resistance to atmospheric agents. POEs are divided into EOR (Ethylene-1 Octene Rubber) and EBR (Ethylene-1 Butene Rubber), they are very similar, EBR has lower crystallinity and better impact, while EOR has better mechanical resistance, slightly stiffer, induriemiento with exceptional vulcanization.


(p-phenylene oxide) It is a high temperature thermoplastic with the general formula (C8H8O)n. Pure PPE is very difficult to transform, so mixtures are made to improve its injection capacity. It is mainly used as a blend with polystyrene, with high impact styrene-butadiene copolymers or with polyamide. These polymer blends of PPO (polyphenylene oxide) with other polymers make up a family with a wide combination of mechanical, thermal and electrical properties.
