Engineering Plastics Compounding Systems
Engineering plastics, also called construction plastics, can be used for the most demanding applications in terms of mechanical strength, heat resistance and resistance to chemical attack. In the so-called plastics pyramid, they are therefore higher than standard plastics such as PE, PE and PVC, but still below the high-performance plastics. In many cases, engineering plastics are an excellent alternative to metals, glass or even ceramics. With function-integrated design and construction as well as sophisticated production methods, customized compounds can be used for realizing high-quality and cost-efficient components. They therefore offer a unique potential for innovation in a wide variety of applications such as automotive and industrial, renewable energy, medical technology and transport. Compounding with its specific possibilities is often the key to achieving the necessary material properties. The engineering plastics compounding systems by BUSS are the support for the production of such specialized materials.
