AEC Pre-Colored, Reinforced, UL Listed Compounds
Precise color-coded and matching part harmony in glass-reinforced polyamide and polyester plastics are among the many ways that we combine our advanced material technology for our customer’s most demanding and cost-sensitive applications.
Reinforced & Lubricated Applications
Wear resistance (moving parts) and metal-like strength (load bearing) are inherent in our high-performance engineered compounds.
We’ve leveraged our decades of compounding expertise to develop customized solutions to drive innovation in a form that makes sense for you. We address common challenges while boosting your process control, quality, and profitability.
InStruc™ Structurally Reinforced Compounds
Whether you are working with high temperatures, high load or just need a wear resistant plastic to boost the durability of your products, Americhem’s glass and carbon fiber reinforced technologies can help you achieve significant improvements.
InLube™ Internally Lubricated Compounds
Over time, parts and components can see a lot of wear in areas where plastic wears on plastic, or plastic wears on metal, causing performance issues, costly warranty claims and premature failure of your products. Americhem can help you protect your products with PTFE, silicone, MoS2 and graphite internally lubricated compounds that are custom designed to help you.
InElec™ Electrically Active Compounds
Electrostatic charge build-up can wreak havoc on the inner-workings of various types of products and equipment, often causing safety concerns and premature wear. Americhem specializes in custom-designed thermoplastic technologies to disperse electrostatic charges. Our carbon fiber, carbon powder, stainless steel fiber, nickel-coated carbon fiber and antistatic alloy compounds are widely used for their proven abilities.
ColorFast™ Engineered Compounds
Adding color to your designs has never been easier than with Americhem’s ColorFast® pre-colored engineering resins. Whether you are looking to boost your brand identity or differentiate your products, ColorFast™ is intended to provide you with shorter lead times and precise color matches.
