High Performance Plastics Materials Information
This group of advanced plastics exhibit exceptional thermal, physical, and chemical properties for the most demanding applications. From space exploration to laboratories, from aeronautics to pharmaceuticals – there is a high-performance plastic for your application.
High Performance Plastics Materials:
The engineering plastics possess better thermal, physical, and/or chemical properties than the standard/commodity plastics, yet don’t have the extreme properties found in high-performance plastics. These are typically used for their simplicity in manufacturing and for replacing traditional materials like wood or metals.

Commodity (Standard) Plastics Materials Information
Standard (commodity) plastics include the most widely used plastics across the globe, including materials like polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE), and poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) – also known as acrylic. When these materials satisfy the requirements of an application, they are preferred for cost-effectiveness.
Commodity (Standard) Plastics Materials:
- Acrylic (PMMA) Poly(methyl methacrylate)
- Polyethylene (PE)
- Polypropylene (PP)
