Metal Balls

(124 companies)
Metal balls are rolling, spherical elements that exhibit greater strength and toughness than plastic and ceramic balls. They have a sufficient hardness for many industrial ball applications, and most products are electrically conductive. Some steel, nickel, and cobalt balls can be magnetized. Metal balls made from certain alloys can also provide corrosion resistance and refractory resistance.

Spherometers

(5 companies)
Spherometers are used to measure the radius or curvature of spherical surfaces such as optical lenses, spherical mirrors, and balls.
Thermoplastics and thermoplastic materials soften when heated and harden when cooled. They can withstand many heating and cooling cycles and are often suitable for recycling.
Fabricated plastic parts and semi-finished shapes include molded, cast, extruded and machined parts made from any polymeric materials. They are supplied as bars, films, plates, profiles, rods and shims.

Rare-Earth Magnets

(77 companies)
Rare-earth magnets are permanent magnets made of alloys of rare earth components. Rare-earth magnets have the strongest magnetic field of most magnets.

...to process than other graded resins, but have characteristics that make them desirable for specialized use. Widely used engineering grade thermoplastics include acetal, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), nylon, noryl and polycarbonate. Certifications...

Ceramic Balls

(71 companies)
Ceramic balls are spherical, rolling elements that provide higher stiffness, lower thermal expansion, lighter weight, increased corrosion resistance, and higher electrical resistance than steel balls. They are made from a variety of ceramic materials.

Resins and Compounds

(375 companies)
Resins and compounds are used for shape fabrication or bond formation. Types include adhesive, casting, and leveling resins; caulk and grout; and sealants and thread lockers.

Hot Melt Adhesives

(235 companies)
Hot melt adhesives are solvent-free chemical compounds that are used to join materials. They can be repeatedly softened by heat and hardened or set by cooling, allowing parts to be removed or repositioned during assembly.
Polysulphide adhesive resins and sealants provide a flexible and chemically resistant adhesive or sealant.

Ball Joints

(20 companies)
Ball joints are flexible joints consisting of a ball with a protruding stud that has been captured inside an outer housing. They allow simultaneous limited motion in all directions, including rotation as well as angular.

Plastic Tubing

(629 companies)
Plastic tubing is tubing constructed from plastic compounds for use in fluid flow or structural systems, or as insulation or sheathing for electrical or heating assemblies.
