Plastic Material Selection
The exact plastic material composition is an important factor when specifying parts for equipment used in the lumber and timber industry. Our plastic experts will determine the best plastic material, including custom resins and colors, for your application.
For example, DPI’s UHMW (ultra high molecular weight) polyethylene is an excellent material choice for parts and components used in lumber and timber industry equipment applications that require superior durability, wear resistance, low friction, and corrosion resistance. Additionally UHMW plastic can be machined, fabricated, or injection molded.
DPI’s Injection Molding Plastic Expertise
Diversified Plastics has mastered the art of injection molding Industrial Grade Polymers to meet custom designs and sizes. DPI is the only company with the capabilities to injection-mold UHMW polyethylene, thanks to our state-of-the-art facilities and plastics expertise. Our proprietary injection molding process can produce products of UHMW-PE, high density polyethylene, polypropylene, urethane, cast urethane, and nylon. Our injection molding capabilities provide benefits such as custom and precision parts work, faster cycle times, reduced material waste, cost efficiencies, and high production runs. So, why machine it when you can mold it?
