Structural & Reinforced Plastic Compounds

Our Structural Products are thermoplastic materials that provide a specific combination of physical, mechanical, visual, and protective properties. Our Product Development Engineers carefully balance these properties when formulating a thermoplastic solution, first by selecting a proper resin system to meet the physical requirements, and then tailoring the additive technologies to achieve the necessary mechanical, visual, and protective characteristics.
