Plastic Material Selection Designed with You in Mind.

The growing demand for high-tech engineered plastics [resins] offers plastic product design engineers more than +50,000 varying commercially available grades of plastics to select for use in their plastic components or assemblies.

Today’s engineered resins are produced and marketed at breakneck speeds. Consequently, the amount of available historical [plastic] test data when compared to metals is inherently limited and the availability of technical data associated with these materials can be exceptionally difficult to locate.

CPC Plastics, Inc. has decades of knowledge and experience working with all types of plastics, including Thermoplastics, Thermosets, and Elastomers. CPC Plastics’ engineers have commissioned more than +1000 Plastic Material Selection Studies for a multitude of applications, such as medical, automotive, military, technology, and a wide range of consumer and industrial applications.
