Applications / Automotive

The ability to hold tolerances through a temperature cycle or withstand variable temperature swings are important for plastics being used in the automotive industry. In addition to handling temperature, Ensinger plastics provide the dimensional stability and wear resistance needed for a variety of component applications. Components machined from Ensinger stock shapes have been used in large automated paint systems and automotive curing ovens, as well as applications as simple as a windshield wiper mechanism.
