NEW POLYMERS, NEW POSSIBILITIES
Rauh Polymers

The introduction of three new polymers, a conductive thermoplastic with high heat and chemical resistance and good mechanical properties for electronic and electrical applications, a copolyester with high impact resistance and durability, and a copolyester-based thermoplastic elastomer with high temperature resistance for medical, food and packaging applications, is reported.

Products & Services
Polymers and Plastic Resins
Polymers and plastic materials are organic, synthetic or processed polymers that are supplied as raw materials. They typically consist of thermoplastic or thermosetting resins in the form of pellets, powders or liquid resins. These materials can then be molded into a variety of shapes for a wide range of uses.
Elastomer and Rubber Shapes
Elastomers and rubber shapes are natural or synthetic  polymers that exhibit elastic properties and can be formed into finished or semi-finished stock.  These amorphous polymers are usually thermosets, but are also available as thermoplastics. Elastic polymer (elastomer) and  rubber shapes are available in different forms and sizes, and often use filler materials.
Thermoplastics and Thermoplastic Resins
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.
Electrical Connector Bases and Covers
Electrical connector bases and covers are designed to provide mechanical protection for electrical connectors. They are available in many shapes and sizes to accommodate different types of electrical connections.
Balls and Sphere Shapes
Balls and sphere shapes are used in products that require a spherical component. Examples include bearings, ball screws, valves, flow meters, and gages. Balls and sphere shapes are made from materials such as glass, metals, plastics, and ceramics.
