We recognize that heavy equipment must be built from the most robust engineering polymers so that it will stand up to the rigors of outdoor use in extreme operating environments.

Plastic materials offer a number of advantages for these machines including:

  • Superior wear resistance
  • Impact resistance
  • Durability
