Heavy Equipment

Durable yet lightweight performance plastics stand up to the toughest jobsite demands

It’s called heavy equipment for a reason. Whether the task is construction, demolition, hauling, drilling, conveying, or cleanup, your machinery and vehicles handle massive loads and (whether figuratively or literally) move the earth to enhance our living and working environments.

Despite their light weight, performance plastics shoulder a great deal of this burden. From the cranes that erect skyscrapers to the equipment that harvests food and resources, materials like UHMW, ABS, nylon, and polycarbonate add extraordinary value when used to complement or replace metals, wood, and glass.

Curbell Plastics supplies a broad range of strong, tough, and durable plastic materials for use in agriculture, building construction, road construction and maintenance, snow and ice removal, towing, drilling, and much more.

Our plastic material and part design experts work daily with equipment manufacturers, design and cost engineers, maintenance and repair professionals, and procurement and supply chain managers.

Save Time, Keep Costs Down, and Protect Your Assets

Thanks to their durability, light weight, and resistance to impact, wear, heat, chemicals, moisture, and corrosion, plastics improve the performance, efficiency, and longevity of all heavy equipment types.

Performance Plastics for Heavy Equipment Can:

  • Reduce downtime and extend equipment lifetime
  • Lower fuel consumption
  • Improve safety and reduce noise
  • Eliminate or reduce the need for part lubrication
  • Optimize equipment performance in the full range of harsh weather and extreme conditions
  • Take continued punishment and wear to protect more expensive metal heavy equipment parts
