Material Specialists.
Polymer Experts.
Machining Craftsmen.

Machining plastics and composites into intricate products with tight tolerances is our specialty. Material expertise sets us apart from the competition. Our decades of experience with high-performance specialty plastics and thermoplastics ensures your product will be expertly machined to its exact specification—or better.

We can work with you to explain the benefits and limitations of various materials to ensure that you select the most appropriate component for your application.

Composites

CIP composites are thermoset or thermoplastic materials reinforced with impregnated material for additional strength. Impact resistant and dimensionally stable, the formula for CIP composites can be specifically formulated for your application.

With virtually no water absorption and 1/6th the weight of brass and plugged bronze, CIP composites are ideal material choices for wet applications and are commonly used for electrical isolators, bushings, thrust washers, wear pads and more.
