Specializing on the production of industrial components, Memo has extensive knowledge of polymers and their unique set of properties and qualities. We help you match the right polymer to your specific needs.
The best-known polyamide is probably nylon – the original synthetic fiber that we’ve learned to know as a durable and flexible material. Polyamides are also chemically resistant and good engineering plastics, suitable for e.g. the production of small mechanical parts with complex shapes.
PEEK is one of the most expensive materials by weight in the market. On the other hand, it is used mostly for the production of small components with strict demands of durability (e.g. gear wheels), and thermal or chemical resistance (e.g. inside a combustion engine).
TPE is a group of soft thermoplastics that all feel like rubber when you touch it. They have good mechanical properties, including high resistance against abrasion, pressure, heat and oil, which makes them suitable for a wide range of industrial components.
TPU is the most common type of TPE. It is harder and more rigid than other TPEs and has a smoother finish and better resistance to abrasion, while also shrinking less. It is used in many industrial applications, including dampers, bushings and engine parts.
PE is the most common of all plastics in use today and comes in different densities. It is a soft and ductile polymer with high impact resistance, even at low temperature. It is also a good insulator, has a low friction coefficient and is one of the most chemically resistant polymers.
PP resembles PE but is harder and therefore more suitable for mechanical and structural applications. It is also stiffer, yet still tough, and more resistant to chemicals such as solvents, bases and acids and therefore useful in corrosive environments.
A highly impact-resistant polymer with a very smooth surface finish. Its good mechanical properties, including low weight and high strength, make it suitable for vacuum- and thermoforming. ABS is used in e.g. wall sockets and smartphone and computer housings.
PC is a thermoplastic design polymer with excellent transparency, impact resistance, and dimensional stability in a wide temperature range. It is used in aircraft windows, and in numerous industrial applications in machine building, transportation, medtech, etc.
POM is a thermoplastic design polymer that offers excellent wear resistance, stiffness, ductility and malleability. It is also chemically resistant, making it suitable for a wide range of technical components such as gearwheels, journal bearings and other machine parts.
PBT is a thermoplastic polyester which resembles PA but absorbs less moisture. It is resistant to solvents, shrinks only little during forming, is mechanically strong and heat-resistant, which makes it useful as an insulator in electric appliances, in vehicle’s electric systems, and in electronics.
