High-Performing Thermoplastics

Edgetek™ Engineered Polymer Formulations

Versatile & Customizable

The Edgetek™ portfolio consists of a broad range of specialty thermoplastics using a spectrum of engineering resins. Offering versatility and compatibility with a wide range of additives, reinforcing agents, and colorants, Edgetek formulations offer a great balance of properties that make them suitable and widely used in a range of applications and industries.  

To modify and expand on the structural performance of the base resin, these materials are formulated with a range of reinforcing additives, including short glass or carbon fibers, minerals or glass beads. Edgetek materials also offer the opportunity to further customize attributes like chemical resistance, modulus/strength, scratch and mar performance, impact resistance, flame retardance, temperature resistance, and UV stability to match your specific needs.

Serving a variety of industries, including transportation, industrial, consumer, telecommunications, and electrical and electronic, these thermoplastics feature reduced weight, improved design flexibility and part consolidation at a significantly lower cost compared to machined components.

Impact

  • Structurally reinforced formulations utilize a range of fillers to balance strength, dimensional stability, toughness and load-bearing ability
  • High-temperature formulations, based on amorphous to crystalline resins, which retain their physical properties and dimensional stability at elevated temperatures
  • Flame-retardant formulations, offering UL certification and compliance while maintaining the performance of the base engineering resin
