Plastic Product Design

In hostile and corrosive environments, plastics keep performing long after conventional materials would be destroyed. With lower friction and greater chemical compatibility than most metal alloys—not to mention a larger temperature range than standard elastomers—thermoplastic polymers can be engineered to excel under even the most punishing conditions.

Utex develops moldable thermoplastic polymers with a broad range of thermal and mechanical properties for the toughest applications, including the medical, aerospace, and petrochemical industries. Each of our highly engineered polymer components is carefully compounded and processed to possess the properties needed for the job at hand, allowing for optimum sealing performance in a wide variety of sealing environments.

With expert engineers and unsurpassed chemists, Utex is a leading specialist in providing plastic custom sealing solutions that solve the toughest design challenges while reducing the costs associated with metal components.

Utex is also a leader in Urethane Molding.

Our polymer components offer:

  1. Lightweight strength

    Metal may be strong, but it comes at a heavy cost. For jobs that require strength without the extra weight, PEEK features incredible strength-to-weight ratios.

  2. Low friction

    When an application calls for minimal friction, thermoplastic polymers are often the answer. PTFE, for example, is ideal for low-friction jobs like sealing about a low torque shaft.

  3. High temperature and chemical resistance

    Corrosion is often a problem in demanding environments such as the oil and gas industry. Plastics can be engineered to withstand harsh chemical environments while operating under high temperatures and extreme pressure.

  4. Enhanced properties

    When their inherent performance characteristics aren’t enough, thermoplastic polymers can be enhanced with a variety of fillers such as glass, carbon, graphite, and molybdenum disulfide.

  5. Affordability

    Plastics deliver exceptional wear under harsh conditions, extending the operating life and providing an affordable alternative to conventional materials.

  6. Precision machining

    Thermoplastic polymers are highly susceptible to lathe cutting and milling. Our state-of-the-art machining produces exacting replication of critical dimensions, allowing us to meet even the most precise specifications. Our capabilities include: Machining Injection molding Compression molding Molding to metal or rubber
