Semi-finished plastic products and plastic profiles are manufactured by extrusion, a process for the production of continuous plastic forms. Ensinger extrudes a great variety of high performance plastic sheets, plastic rods, and plastic tubes. The majority of these plastic materials are designed to lend themselves to plastic fabrication, and the manufacture of long lasting, high performance plastic parts.
Ensinger engineering plastic materials show consistently lower internal stress than competitive plastic materials. That leads to dimensional stability and the ability to hold tighter tolerances. Ensinger offers such high tech plastic materials as TECAPEEK® polyetheretherketone (PEEK) manufactured with Victrex® PEEK™ polymer, TECAFORM® acetal copolymer and Delrin® 150 acetal homopolymer. We also manufacture plastic stock shapes from Ultem® polyetherimide, Radel® polyphenylsulfone, and Zytel® nylon along with many other high performance plastic resins.
