    Product Index

    ABS

    ABS is available in a variety of grades, such as virgin, economy, acrylic capped, flame retardant and engineering grades. ABS lends itself towards a number of uses, such as cases, automotive applications, encasings and durable point of sale.

    Acetal

    Acetal is an engineering plastic with a high surface strength, high resistance to wear and tear and very good sliding properties. Acetal has good thermal stability with a temperature range from -50 °C to 110 °C as well as a very low risk of stress cracks and a good resistance to chemicals. Typical applications include bearings, fittings, gear wheels, parts for pumps, screws. 

    Acrylic

    Acrylic is our core material, we offer a huge range encompassing rod, tube, block and accessories. Acrylic can be extruded or cast, with cast offering technical properties over the extruded. Acrylic is used for a range of applications including retail display, aquariums, medical applications, fluid movement analysis and lighting.

    Aluminium Composite Panel - Alupanel / Dibond / Reynobond

    A lightweight, rigid composite of aluminium with a plastic core. Available in a range of pre-painted finishes this sheet product is particularly well suited to shop-fitting, interior design and sign making as well as many industrial applications.

    HIPS

    Combines excellent forming with good colouration and mechanical properties. Available in a wide range of colours and finishes, HIPs is used in a large number of applications, such as point of sale, signage, model making, tray forming, templating and printing.

    Nylon

    Available in many different grades, for example 6, 66, oil or glass filled Nylon. Nylon is well suited to a range of industrial applications. Due to its mechanical characteristics, high stiffness and hardness Nylon is commonly specified for bearing parts, gear wheels, pump parts and castors. 

    PE

    PE has good chemical resistance to almost all acids and bases, detergents and hot water. PE has good insulation properties and is easy to weld. Typical applications include transport containers, pumps and valve parts, parts in tank construction, components with medical applications, gaskets, sliding profiles, components for the food industry.

    PEEK

    PEEK can be used at very high temperatures (about +260 °C) and it shows an extraordinary mechanical strength, toughness, hardness, flexural strength and torsional strength. PEEK exhibits excellent chemical resistance, very good dielectric properties up to +260 °C and a very good resistance to all kinds of radiation (even ultraviolet rays only lead to a slight yellow discolouration of its self-extinguishing properties according to UL 94).

    Perspex

    Perspex is a high quality brand of acrylic sheet, available in a range of colours, textures and finishes. Perspex clear acrylic cast sheet has a light transmission higher than that of glass and can be formed, fabricated and machined to produce a range of products suited to interior design, point of sale and furniture.

    PETG

    Transparent PETG sheet has excellent processing properties with a light transmission of 90%, the same as glass, PETG is just over half the weight and has a superior impact resistance.  PETG has an excellent fire rating and is suitable for applications where more durability is required. PETG has the benefit of being food approved as standard, according to FDA and EEC regulations.

    Polycarbonate

    Polycarbonate delivers the transparency of glass at less than half the weight combining superior impact resistance and clarity, making it the material of choice for many demanding applications. Polycarbonate can be fabricated and formed, making it ideal for applications such as barrel vault roofing, roof lights and glazing. Clear, translucent or opaque polycarbonate sheets are also ideal for safety glazing applications.

    PP

    Polypropylene shows a high mechanical and tensile strength, but a low notched impact strength. PP resists stress cracking and it is easy to weld. At minus temperatures it can become brittle. The chemical and electrical properties are very good. The continuous operating temperatures ranges between -40 °C and +90 °C.

    PSU

    Polysulfone has great thermal stability from 100 °C to +160 °C. PSU possesses a high mechanical strength, very good dielectric properties and hydrolysis resistance.

    PTFE

    PTFE is a semi-crystalline high performance thermoplastic available in rod, sheet and tube. In addition to the standard range ADL offer filled grades of PTFE to best suit the product application. PTFE has excellent chemical resistance, very good sliding properties as well as being a product that machines very well. Applications include; pump housings, valve seats, roller coverings, pump parts.

    PVC

    PVC is rated self-extinguishing, has exceptional chemical resistance and is easy to machine. PVC shows high mechanical strength, tensile strength and can be used in applications ranging in temperatures from 0 °C to +60 °C. It can also be easily solvent cemented and welded.
