Electrical

Plastic materials are ideal for use in electrical and electronic applications. Plastics can withstand high voltages and high temperatures without degradation, where other materials experience failure. Many of our materials offer superior insulating properties while others are available in surface or volume conductive and dissipative formulations. Plastics exhibit dielectric strength, high insulation and corrosion, thermal performance, and water and heat resistance. These qualities make them ideal for safe, high performance electrical components. Composite materials combine properties to make electrical components with superior mechanical strength, high dielectric constants, and other important characteristics. The electrical and insulation properties of plastic make it a popular material for wiring, cabling, sleeving, and electrical shielding products.
