Material handling equipment such as conveyors, carts, wheels, rollers, slides, and transportation equipment are ideal applications for plastics. Plastics are flexible and tough enough to withstand rough treatment and abuse without breaking. Bearings and wear surfaces made from plastics are low friction and tough.
Materials Utilized Within Industry:
Materials used in the Material Handling industry include ABS, Acetal, Acrylic, PETG, HDPE,
Nylon/Cast Nylon, Polycarbonate, PEEK, PET/PETE, Polypropylene,, PTFE, PVC, and UHMW-PE.
