Engineering plastics play an integral part in today's world. Whether you drive a car, stay digitally connected with your smart devices or enjoy sports, the chances are that the materials used are largely based on engineered polymers.
Engineering plastics offer enhanced mechanical and thermal properties, such as high impact strength and fatigue resistance, that are of great importance in demanding environments. These high-performance materials meet the ever-growing demand for lightweight design in the automotive, aerospace, 3D printing, and sustainable building industries. These products also allow for miniaturization in consumer electronics.
The most relevant trend to gain traction in the market is the rising importance of bio-based* engineering plastics. By using solutions by Cargill you can improve the sustainability profile of your products, while improving the performances.
Polymer modification with Cargill’s specialized ingredients offers numerous solutions. Firstly, products can improve impact strength, flow properties, and flexibility, thanks to the chemistry of Cargill’s engineering plastics. These products also provide excellent low temperature performance.
Cargill’s engineering plastic products provide enhanced protection against moisture, as well as superior resistance to heat and oxidation. The raw materials used to create engineering plastics materials give products high UV resistance for ultra-transparent materials.
These products also provide improved adhesion for over-molding, fiber reinforcement and lamination, and good surface wetting of low surface energy products.
