Materials
           
   Your choices are...         
   ABS       Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) is a hard, rigid, thermoplastic polymer. It provides good chemical and creep resistance, and dimensional stability. ABS is used in many industries, in a wide array of applications. It is generally inexpensive, although it is prone to crack when under stress. Common trade names include Cycolac® (GE Plastics), Lustran® (Bayer) and Novodur® (Bayer). 
   CPVC       Chlorinated polyvinyl chloride. 
   Delrin®       Delrin® refers to a class of acetal homopolymers from DuPont. They offer high tensile strength, impact resistance and stiffness, and outstanding fatigue endurance. Delrin is resistant to moisture, gasoline, solvents, and many other neutral chemicals. It offers dimensional stability and good electrical insulating characteristics. Delrin is resilient and resists creep. It also maintains natural lubricity at a wide end-use temperature range. The main property limitations are repeated use in steam or hot water, and exposure to strong acids or bases outside the pH range of 4-9. 
   Hypalon® (CSM)       Chlorosulfonated polyethylene (CSM) provides excellent ozone, oxidation, sunlight (color degradation), and weather resistance. It is also capable of providing resistance to alkalis and acids. Suggested operating temperature for CSM materials is between -60° to 300° F. Hypalon® is a registered trademark of DuPont Dow Elastomers. 
   Kevlar®       Kevlar® is a man-made organic fiber developed by DuPont, characterized by aramid fibers in an epoxy matrix. The general features of Kevlar are high tensile strength at low weight, structural rigidity and durability, high chemical resistance, low electrical conductivity, and high flame and cutting resistance. It is used in many safety and heavy-duty industrial applications. 
   Kynar®       Kynar® is one of the most chemically resistant plastics available. It provides excellent (UV) ultraviolet and abrasion resistance and is primarily used in chemical processing industries. Kynar is a registered trademark of Elf Atochem North America, Inc. 
   Nylon / Polyamide       Nylon, comprising several grades of polyamides, is a general purpose material in wide use. It is tough, resistant, and has good pressure ratings. 
   PEEK       Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) is a high-temperature resistant, engineered thermoplastic. It has excellent chemical and fatigue resistance, and thermal stability. PEEK has superior chemical resistance, is inert to all common solvents, and resists a wide range of organic and inorganic liquids. It has a maximum continuous working temperature of 480°F and retains its mechanical properties in up to 570°F steam or high-pressure applications. 
   Polycarbonate (PC)       Polycarbonate is an amorphous material with excellent impact strength, clarity, and optical properties. It has excellent mechanical properties, and can be molded to tight tolerances. Solvents and petrochemicals attack it, and its weatherability is only adequate. Brand names commonly include: Caliber® (Dow), Lexan® (GE), Makrofol® and Makrolon® (Bayer). 
   Polyethylene (PE)       Polyethylene (PE) is a semi-crystalline (typically around 50%), semi-opaque, commodity thermoplastic that is soft, flexible and tough even at low temperatures. PE has outstanding electrical properties, but poor temperature resistance. It also has very good chemical resistance, but is prone to environmental stress cracking. PR also has poor UV resistance (unless modified) and poor barrier properties, except to water. 
   Polyolefine       Polyolefine is a resin that exhibits resistance to chemicals and is suitable for a wide use of media. 
   Polyoxymethylene (POM, Acetal)       Acetal polymers are semi-crystalline. They offer excellent inherent lubricity, fatigue resistance, and chemical resistance. Acetals suffer from outgassing problems at elevated temperatures, and are brittle at low temperatures. Glass-filled and added lubrication grades are available, while flame-retardant grades are not. Brand names include Celcon® (Hoechst Celanese), Delrin® (DuPont), Thermocomp® (LNP), Ultraform® (BASF). 
   Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS)       Polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) is a heat-resistant, crystalline polymer with simple chemical construction. This polymer has a high melting point of about 280o C and maintains outstanding chemical resistance. Brand names include: Fortron® (Hoechst Celanese), Lubricomp® (LNP), Ryton® (Phillips), Supec® (GE). 
   Polypropylene (PP)       Polypropylene is a thermoplastic material exhibiting excellent cold flow, bi-axial strength, and yield elongation properties. It is similar to PVC, but can be used in exposed applications because of its resistance to UV, weathering, and ozone. 
   Polyurethane / Urethane       Polyurethane materials exhibit elongation, recovery, and toughness properties. They are flexible and have good abrasion resistance. (NOTE: The urethanes of the plastics industry are so named because the repeating units of their structures resemble the chemical urethane.) Trade names include Texin® (Bayer), Adiprene® and Vibrathane® (Uniroyal Chemical), Estane® (B F Goodrich), Genthane® (General Tire and Rubber), Millathane®, and Pellethane® (Dow Chemical). 
   PTFE - Teflon®       Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is an insoluble compound that exhibits a high degree of chemical resistance and a low coefficient of friction. It is sometimes marketed in proprietary classes of materials such as Teflon®, a registered trademark of DuPont Dow Elastomers. 
   PVC       Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is a widely used material that has good flexibility, smooth surface, and nontoxic qualities. Some grades are used in food and chemical processes due to the inert nature of PVC. Brand names include: ACP® and Dural® (Alpha Gary), Geon® (Geon), Benvic® (Solvay), Flexalloy® (Teknor Apex). 
   PVDF       Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) is a melt processable fluropolymer. It is similar in properties to other fluropolymers, but has better strength and lower creep than the other members of this family. PVDF has good wear resistance and excellent chemical resistance. It does not perform well at elevated temperatures. Brand names include: Kynar® (Elf AtoChem). 
   Vinyl       Vinyl exhibits good flexibility and chemical resistance; it is used in many medical and chemical applications. 
   Other       Other unlisted material.
