HiGrav™ High Specific Gravity Compounds
Our High Specific Gravity Compounds combine the processing benefits of thermoplastic compounds with the superior attributes of metal. Our compounds utilize metals and heavy clays to achieve such a product.
Surlyn® Reflections Series
Specially designed alloys based on ionomer technology. An unmatched combination of durability and aesthetics in outdoor applications with tough, weather-resistant alloys.
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.
