Specialty Compounds for Gears Literature

Gear ApplicationsTechnical Brief

The number of injection molded plastic gears manufactured each year is in the billions. Engineers use plastic gears for a wide range of applications in automobiles, computers, electronics, industrial machinery, and medical equipment. They provide a lightweight, low-cost means of transmitting motion and power.

Unfilled resins are particularly ideal for small, low-power gears. However, applications that require precision motion control, load carrying ability, and/or temperature resistance demand the enhanced performance of plastic gear compounds by RTP Company.

After determining your requirements, we draw on our wealth of experience to select the appropriate resin and additive that balance performance, price, and other demands.
