HEAVY EQUIPMENT

Increasing productivity through advanced engineering plastics

Our plastics are designed to operate in tough conditions, offering heavy machinery OEMs increased efficiency and more reliable performance.

Hero
Replacing bronze, cast iron, and welded steel with high-performance plastics

Thermoplastic products that extend time-in-use, reduce installation costs, and improve the final performance of heavy machinery.

With global expertise and broad experience across applications in heavy equipment, we help you find better, more flexible material solutions – including custom injection-molding designs to meet tight tolerance requirements.

Our wide range of heavy equipment engineering materials, combined with a variety of conversion technologies, ensures industry-leading solutions that reduce costs, greatly abate noise, and extend service life and Mean Time Between Repair (MTBR).

The high-performance materials in our industry portfolio are extensively tested and designed to operate in extreme conditions – including harsh wear and high temperatures. Due to the natural properties of polymers, many are even self-lubricating, leading to reduced downtime and longer-lasting parts in heavy machinery applications.

Our suite of extreme thermoplastic materials exhibit high mechanical strength while maintaining the cost effectiveness and light weight of advanced polymers, allowing our customers to replace heavy materials such as bronze and steel without compromising on performance.

Our teams deliver enhanced parts for the end-user, while reducing waste and costs and helping to push innovation in heavy equipment applications.

  • Increased productivity
  • Reduced wear and increased cost savings provided by wear-enhanced products
  • Extended Mean Time Between Repair (MTBR)
  • Improved component chemical resistance
  • Noise reduction through friction-optimized products (with non-stick-slip behavior)
  • Environmentally friendly applications resulting from reduced external greasing
  • Optimum safety in use
