Phenolic Thermoset

With a long history as a custom molder of thermoset materials,
M & E Plastics LLC has facilitated the successful design and launch of many programs. Thermosets are frequently used as material for powertrain applications such as thrust washers and torque convertor stator caps. The use of thermosets in these applications results in low creep for high temperature environments at a low cost.

Other very common uses of thermoset molded items are electrical applications such as circuit breaker bodies and items which require excellent electric insulation properties. Our bulk molding capabilities and equipment allow M & E Plastics LLC to successfully meet the requirements of our customers in the electrical supply industry.

Our commitment to providing outstanding thermosetting and thermoplastic services is represented by our investment in specialty thermoset molding equipment. We use hot oil circulation equipment to meet the higher temperatures required for tooling thermosetting materials and can also accommodate existing tooling with cartridge heaters in our plant.  

Thermoplastic

The growth of thermoplastics in almost every area of manufacturing has dramatically increased the choices of materials to meet end use requirements. Thermoplastics are now used across many markets from automotive to aerospace and consumer goods to agriculture. They have been used in an ever-expanding array of applications often replacing more costly materials.

New materials have been brought to market that have excellent properties which have revolutionized the injection molding field. Unique additives to the base material result in excellent wear resistance, chemical resistance and other desirable properties in molded parts. The unique thing about thermoplastics is the wide spectrum of materials that can be processed with injection molding including both engineered materials and common community materials.
