Applications / Aerospace

Components used in aerospace applications require high strength, lightweight plastics with good machining characteristics. Some components are made from Ensinger plastics that feature a low coefficient of friction, good dimensional stability, superior wear resistance, good surface hardness and resilience, as well as superior resistance to repeated impact and creep. Ensinger plastics have been used in avionics sensor plates, electronic mounting brackets, and military components with moving parts.
