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 90,000 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.
