Plastic Material Selection Designed with You in Mind.

With more than 50K commercially available resins in today's marketplace along with a wealth of custom compounders producing unknown numbers of proprietary grades of the plastic materials, including Thermoplastics, Thermosets, and Elastomers.

Today, plastic engineers must have comprehensive understanding of the wide array of plastic materials available to meet their specific needs based on their intended plastic manufacturing process and in clear view of the application and service-use.

Each plastic resin [material] has unique mechanical strength properties that, designed for specific manufacturing processes, tool and die (mold) design and their impact on the performance, useful service life, and ultimate suitability of the plastic material recommendation for testing and analysis.

From Crack Propagation Analysis, Microscopy and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to making sense of laboratory test data, no one has a more infinite understanding of why plastics fail. CPC Plastics, we truly do have plastic down to a science!
