Material Selection for Part Application

Material selection is one of the most complicated aspects of the final part design.  The customer/inventor usually does not have enough knowledge of what type of thermoplastic material to use for their product.  There are over 69,000 types and grades of thermoplastic resin.  Choosing a material can be very time consuming.

Toth Mold/Die Inc. has run and sampled all types and grades of thermoplastic resin from standard PP, HDPE and Nylon to very high engineered materials.  Toth Mold/Die Inc. can choose a suitable resin to meet the required properties for the product.  There are materials that are metal replacement and also various types of elastomers that replace rubber.  There are also a large choice of fillers such as glass fiber, mineral, stainless steel and carbon fiber to mention a few.  Other highly used material includes flame retardant, lubricated, conductive and optical.  Another issue for a product is color.  Toth Mold/Die Inc. can match any color that the customer requires and also many types of surface finishes.
