Amorphous Engineering Plastics

Thermoplastics with moderate strength and temperature capabilities often used for general purpose structural parts

General Characteristics of Amorphous Engineering Plastics

  • General purpose structural parts
  • Moderate strength
  • Moderate temperature
  • Good dimensional stability
  • Good Izod impact
  • Easily fabricated

Amorphous engineering plastics can be considered for applications with an approximate maximum temperature of 250°F. Selecting a plastic material for use in a high temperature environment requires careful review of material properties data.
