Plastic Solution for Mechanical Engineering
Traditionally, mechanical engineering likes to use steel or metal alloys in order to get the high mechanical strength and precision of the components. But the metal materials also have their own inevitable disadvantages, such as heavyweight, extra lubrication needed, no resistance under corrosive conditions, and so on.
So nowadays, high-performance engineering plastics are gradually replacing metal and the trend is becoming more and more popular. The plastic material has many benefits that the metal is incomparable, such as good chemical resistance, lightweight, electrical insulation, and etc.
Plastic is always an ideal solution for mechanical components like gears, seals, sliding elements, valve seats, and other applications.
Keward provides a wide range of high-performance engineering plastics and has extensive application experience. We could not only provide high-quality materials but also offer practical suggestions on materials selection, design, and machinability.

Materials for Mechanical Engineering
PEEK virgin is an unfilled semi-crystalline high-performance plastic with high continuous temperature, good mechanical strength, excellent dimensional stability, and exceptional chemical resistance.
PTFE virgin is one of the most widely used high-performance plastics. It exhibits exceptional chemical resistance, very good slide and wears properties, excellent electrically insulation, and other benefits.
PPS virgin is a high performance plastic with great benefits of high continuous temperature, good machinability, excellent dimensional stability and low water absorption. Black and natural color are available.
PEEK PVX is a bearing grade PEEK plastic. It has excellent wear resistance and sliding performance by adding PTFE, graphite, and carbon fiber. PEEK pvx is an ideal material for any sliding situation.
Ultem virgin has high mechanical strength, high rigidity, dimensional stability, and very good radiation resistance. It also has very good wave permeability and can be used in the telecom industry.
