Typical properties of Perspex are as follows:

Perspex Sheets

  • Easy to clean
  • Excellent light transmission
  • Excellent strength & rigidity
  • Great ability to withstand UV discolouration


Perspex Characteristics:

Perspex will begin to become malleable at temperatures between 140 – 170 degrees Celsius, which is great when you need to fabricate custom Perspex displays.

Perspex can be glued using specific water thin solvents as well as thicker types of glues when strength in the glue joint is required. An example of this situation would be  fish tank.

Perspex is easily machine- able and can be cut using a panel saw with saw blades that are typically used to cut wood. Perspex is able to be Cnc Routed as well as laser cut. You can even score it in sheet form up to 4.0mm thick using a Stanley blade clamping the sheet and pressing down to snap it to size.

Another great feature of Perspex is that you can make custom trophies that can be engraved and come with highly polished edges.

Everywhere you go nowadays you will see Perspex used as custom and point of sale display stands that are in almost every retail shop. Have a look and you will be surprised how much is out there.

Nylon uses & properties


Nylon commonly known as the work horse of plastics was first patented in 1935 by a scientist working for DuPont. Since this time nylon has become renowned for its toughness & wear characteristics which enable it to be used in many industrial applications that require a tough material.
There are many variants of nylon nowadays each suited to a particular set of circumstances.

Some of the more common Nylons are:

Nylon Cnc Routed Component

• Nylon 6 SA
• Nylon 66 SA
• Nylon Oil filled LFX or Oilon
• Nylon 6PLA
• Nylon 6XAU

Nylon is not damaged by oils in fact you can purchase oil filled nylon for self-lubricating applications.
It is often used within the electrical industry due to its heat resistance & non-conductive properties as it has a melting temperature of 216 degrees Celsius.
Another Nylon attribute is that it has excellent impact strength as well as being able to withstand high loads, although it does have water absorption which can cause it to swell.
Nylon is used to make plastic bushes as well as bearings & as such may have additives introduced to increase wear properties such as Molybdenum, and in other cases glass fibres to increase strength properties.

Commonly used for applications such as:

• Rollers
• Gears
• Guides
• Insulators
• Wear pads
• bearings

Nylon is an excellent material when machined and is often used to make quality change parts for industry saving a lot of money to business owners due to the fact it is cheaper than steel and lasts longer. In many applications the material is much lighter than metal.
Available in rod & sheet form in various thicknesses & diameters it is commonly supplied in natural as well as black, however it does come in green and yellow oil filled.
Next time you require a bush or bearing consider using nylon for its advanced wear properties, as well as no need for lubrication.
So when inquiring about a piece of plastic call one of our dedicated staff to help source the correct material type for your job.

Polycarbonate Machine Guards for safety

Polycarbonate Machine Guards
Without Polycarbonate Machine Guards, the  potential for serious injury is always present when machinery is in motion. Sharp edges are rotating and cutting components to size, or flat panels are slamming down on powerful pistons to crush waste material into compact packages. One careless moment in this or any other machine-heavy area would be enough to cause a nasty injury, one that has the potential to end life. Thankfully, there’s a line of defense that stands between your employee and this hazardous mechanical area. The embodiment of this shield is found in the installation of machine guards. Far from being perceived as peripheral parts of a machine, trained employees are always made aware of such guards, how they function, and what will happen if the barrier is not in place.

You can see examples of Polycarbonate Machine Guards in action everywhere. As one example, check out the belt drives on motor assemblies. Often made of metal, they’re equipped with a grille to improve heat dissipation. Now, while metal guards have always had this role in industry, other environments have turned to engineering plastic as the optimal answer. It’s true that metal will defeat bodily contact when a sealed machine is nearby, but what about the assembly line devices that are only partially enclosed? This scenario and instances where contact is either partially accessible or brought about during key moments of a lengthy process requires a more elegant solution. Think about a machine tool setting where drilling and CNC operations are being carried out repeatedly. The process is directly interfaced to human input. Tough plastic machine guards are fabricated for just such applications. A clear Perspex or hard Acrylic composite moulds to cover every possible access point, allowing the operator to safely monitor the task without injury.

The dynamic forces in play on the other side of this setting reinforce our case study by providing a solid rationale to form the guard from an abrasion-resistant material that incorporates a certain amount of elasticity. Not fabricated from an engineering plastic that could be considered truly pliable, the acrylic and polycarbonate guards are nonetheless formulated to absorb energy. This means sparking metal fragments and rough-edged materials may fly off a component as it’s shaped by a subtractive CNC router operation, but the protective screen will absorb this high-energy explosion of subtractive debris.

Though often seen as the transparent energy-absorbing plastic barriers that are placed between a tool operator and a hazardous working environment, we’d be remiss in not entertaining other scenarios. Plastic machine guards act as bumpers and handrails during an assembly line process where human operators are in attendance. They act as spring-loaded guards that are integral to the outline of powered hand tools. And though these machine guards are often connected to some form of dead-man’s switch or an electronic sensor, a safeguard that stops the machine if the shield is not in place, we must still consider the physical nature of the fixture as a first line of protection. Remember, thanks to these simple attachments, industrial injury figures are consistently kept low.

What are Acrylic Displays?

Acrylic displays have become the mainstream choice for displaying products. Despite its growing popularity, many business owners still ask – what are acrylic displays? ”What you don’t know won’t hurt you,” it’s commonly said. But this is one of those times where “not knowing” could be bad for business. As an entrepreneur, it is your responsibility to know what an acrylic display is and how you can benefit from it on a commercial standpoint.

A Quick History of Acrylic

Acrylic glass, the material used in acrylic displays, was first invented in the mid-1800s. By the time World War II broke out, acrylic glass was commercially available. Both the Allied and Axis forces used it on aircraft windshields, gun turrets, and submarine periscopes because it was less hazardous to the soldiers that operated them. Fast forward to today, and it is now widely employed by the commercial sector as acrylic displays.

What are acrylic displays?

Acrylic displays are basically display stands. Depending on their design, they may be incorporated with other materials such as aluminum, stainless steel, or hard plastic. Acrylic displays can be fully enclosed, partially enclosed, or open.

They are typically used to showcase retail products to customers. Examples of products that can be put on display include packaged food, household items, body care products, clothes, and accessories. However, they can also be used solely for storage. When employed with refrigeration, acrylic displays can be used for both the storage and display of perishable products such as fresh produce, meat and poultry, fish, and other food items that require a cool environment like cake, ice cream, and certain medications.

Because of their many uses and designs, acrylic displays are found in a variety of businesses including flower shops, restaurants, bakeries, cake shops, pharmacies, clothing outlets, computer shops , and many more. With that said, there is more to acrylic display than functionality.

The benefits of acrylic displays

Because of their functionality, acrylic displays are quite practical for any business. That’s because they are made of polymethyl methacrylate or PMMA. This chemical composition gives acrylic display a plastic look and feel, but still provides clarity so that you can still see through it clearly. And while it is technically made of glass, acrylic display is tougher and more flexible than standard glass.

Acrylic displays are highly resistant to impact and scratches, which make them excellent for both the display and storage of products. And, because they don’t contain bisphenol-A common in plastic (polycarbonate) displays, they are a lot safer to use with food items.

Another benefit of acrylic displays is their wide availability of designs to choose from. Some companies like Industrial Plastic Solutions can even provide you with custom-made acrylic displays for your specific needs. More information about the company and their products can be found here:

Teflon Sheet & its Applications

teflon sheet
Teflon sheet is hard at work in every aspect of domestic life, having seeped into our collective consciousness by creating a formidable reputation in several critical industrial applications. The brand label is derived from the hard to pronounce technical name, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), a complex polymer with high tensile carbon-fluoride bonds, but it’s the properties and applications of this well-known polymer that concern us today.

Having established a place in popular culture as the non-stick coating of choice for cookware, the industrial applications of the long chain polymer are many. Due to an ability to reject moisture, Teflon coated parts are called into service where water is present, meaning Teflon is found underwater and in pipe coatings that reject the influence of watery liquids. The tactile sensation encountered when running a finger along a Teflon coated component is that of a slippery layer of tough plastic. This simple action clues us into another application for the Teflon family, that of a ball bearing or other low friction component. A tough environment that presses the fluorocarbon polymer into service against potentially abrasive surfaces will find Teflon up to the task due to this enviable low-friction coefficient.

As with many advanced polymers, PTFE, is chemically inert. A coating made from Teflon will reject the reactive influences of acids and oils, thus promoting a primary characteristic that typically sees Teflon additives gaining prominence within oil and chemical production domains. But we have to return to that initial contact with the waxy and slippery surface of PTFE to explore the full scope of Teflon. Able to take the form of a powder or an emulsion in the high-end factories where the substance is applied, the curing process used to seal Teflon is incredibly versatile. It can be precisely deposited as the thinnest of layers on a bullet, thus reducing friction within a rifle barrel. The same technology deposits the material on components that move and must never stick. We’re not talking about non-stick frying pans in this case. Instead, we’re referring to sluice gates that have been idle for extended periods. This approach is especially relevant in places where low maintenance is preferred. Self-lubrication is an advantageous factor in these situations, a role that Teflon is particularly adept at fulfilling.

We’ve skimmed across a few of the common applications that Teflon (PTFE) is suited for, taking the opportunity when possible to establish why the polymer is so capable in each application. Look for mentions of Teflon in other disciplines, in the semiconductor industry, pharmaceutics and as a tough coating for use in the food and beverage sector.
