High Performance Plastics for Material Handling

Thermoplastics growth in the material handling and packaging industry reflects the suitability of these materials to meet today’s requirements, add value and reduce over costs in these applications.

We modify plastic resins with a variety of unique modifiers to yield specific properties and functional benefits. You can depend on RTP Company for unbiased assistance during the development process and during production to be a supplier of quality materials who can meet your delivery expectations anywhere around the globe.

Our Materials Provide:

Increased Life Cycles with Internally Lubricated Materials

  • Eliminate or minimize need for external lubricants
  • Increase life of moving or contact surfaces
  • Wide range of wear additives available for diverse applications

Typical applications include:
Links,bearings, bushings, rollers, guides, wear strips and pads.

Removal of Static Charges with Conductive Compounds

  • Provide permanent protection from ESD (electrostatic discharge)
  • Minimize static shock dangers and particle build-up problems
  • Maintain mechanical properties of unmodified base resin
  • Meet ATEX requirements for explosive atmospheres
  • Metal detectable compounds and masterbatch
  • X-Ray detectable compounds

Typical applications include:
Parts totes and bins. Conveyor links, rollers, idlers, scrapers, anti-static wear strips and guides.

Increased Strength and Improved Designs with Reinforced Polymers

  • Improve mechanical properties for more durable, lightweight and corrosion resistant parts
  • Use increased design freedom to consolidate parts, simply manufacturing processes
  • Long-glass fiber compounds provide superior strength, impact resistance, dimensional stability, creep and fatigue performance
  • Value Product structural compounds for a wide range of low cost glass and mineral reinforced compounds

Typical applications include:
Conveyor sprockets, links, scrapers, and guides.

UL and European Compliance with Flame Retardant Compounds

  • Provide resistance to ignition and burning
  • Select from 300+ UL Recognized or RoHS/WEEE compliant materials
  • Lower smoke generation and toxic fume emissions

Typical applications include:
Shipping boxes, pallets and bins. Conveyor links, rollers, idlers, and guides.

Improved Seals and Ergonomics with Thermoplastic Elastomers

  • Bondable to a wide range of substrates
  • Dampen vibration, reduce noise, and protect impact points

Typical applications include:
Conveyor linkage overmolds, conveyor wheels, vibration isolators and gaskets for control panels.
