PLASTICS MATERIALS

When we save, you save. In addition to CNC machines, we have a full arsenal of tools for a variety of material and plastics machining combinations. Our efficiency and extensive care in producing less waste of both time and materials passes those savings onto you.

K&E Plastics has over 50 years of experience working with thermoplastics, high-performance engineered polymers. Within the thermoplastics family, we machine virgin, glass-filled, or grades with other fillers. Our machinists ensure the proper coolants are used for the type of material they are machining.

Why use thermoplastics? They come in wide varieties compatible with specific mechanical, electrical, or chemical properties, enabling them to fit an extensive range of applications. Thermoplastics provide your project with the following benefits:

  • Chemical resistant
  • Eco-friendly manufacturing options
  • Electrical insulation
  • Elimination of lubrication
  • Faster operation of equipment/ line speeds
  • High strength and rigidity
  • Impact resistance
  • Less power needed to run equipment
  • Longer part life
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Low dissipation factor
  • Low moisture absorption
  • Reduced wear on mating parts
  • Various types of thermoplastics images
  • Various types of thermoplastics images of largely rounded shapes

At K&E, we machine all types of composite grades including fiberglass-reinforced polyesters, paper-based laminates, and glass fabric laminates to name a few.

Why use thermosets? They are the perfect option for applications demanding the following capabilities:

  • Economical
  • Electrical insulation
  • Excellent wear properties
  • Flexible design
  • Heat-resistant
  • Lighter weight ratio than metal
  • Superior dimensional stability
  • Rounded thermoset product produced by K&E Plastics
  • Assorted thermoset products produced by K&E Plastics
  • Square thermoset product produced by K&E Plastics
  • Additional square thermoset product produced by K&E Plastics
  • Thermoset product produced by K&E Plastics
