How to Choose an Optimal Non-Metallic Stamping Provider?

Non-metallic stamping is the process of pressing a die through non-metallic material, such as thermoset, thermoplastics, or vulcanized fibre. Many industries are choosing this stamping process due to its ability to shape materials within tight tolerances and its cost-effectiveness. Non-metallic stamping produces parts such as plastic gaskets, fasteners, washers and much more. The process of […]


Why Use Nylon Washers for Automotive Applications?

The automotive industry involves the manufacturing of motor vehicles and their components, such as engines, tires, batteries, and vehicle bodies. Passenger vehicles, light trucks, and commercial vehicles are all types of automotive products that require washers in their assembly.   The use of plastic washers in particular has many benefits for automotive applications. Plastic washers […]


Nylon Washers for Your Aerospace Applications

Plastic components have become an important element in modern-day plane construction. Since World War II, plastic aviation components have been making planes lighter, more durable, and more fuel-efficient by replacing critical rubber parts. Nylon washers, in particular, work to evenly distribute pressure from a nut or bolt, protecting the surface and reducing the risk of […]


Plastic Washers vs Metal Washers

Many applications require the use of washers. Washers are responsible for distributing the pressure of a nut over a surface, reducing the risk of the nut loosening at any point. While metal is one of the most commonly used materials for washers, there are other materials available depending on the needs of the application. Non-metallic […]

Why Choose Plastic Stamping?

Plastic stamping offers an ideal plastic forming method for the affordable production of simple plastic goods in virtually any volume. When compared to machining, plastic stamping offers lower material costs, better repeatability, and faster production speeds when creating custom plastic components. An essential process for many industries that create plastic and polymer parts, successful plastic […]


Why Use Nylon Over Metal?

Nylon is a highly versatile material used in the manufacture of a wide range of industrial parts and products, including gears, spacers, washers and provides various benefits and applications. It is available in several variations (e.g., Nylon 6 and its derivatives, Nylon 6/6 and Nylon MDS), each of which demonstrates unique characteristics that make it […]


Acetal Plastic vs. Nylon Plastic

Nylon and acetal are commonly used in a wide range of manufacturing applications. As both materials are a semi-crystalline thermoplastic, some of their characteristics overlap, such as their fatigue resistance, chemical resistance, and wear resistance with a sharp melting point. Additionally, both are appropriate material choices for the creation of small components such as washers, […]


Benefits of Teflon Washers in the Plumbing Industry

Excellent thermal insulation and chemical resistance properties make polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) suitable for many commercial and industrial applications. PTFE—more commonly known by DuPont’s brand name, Teflon™—is widely used to create solutions for the plumbing sector, such as washers and plumber’s tape. Benefits of Teflon PTFE is a good raw material for fabricating industrial parts due to […]


High Density Polyethylene

Choosing the right plastic is essential to the success of every manufacturing and packaging project. Most plastics are formed from any of six different popular plastics or a plastic mixture with concentrations of different resins. Short-term storage containers, such as bottles and jugs, are usually made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE). This is a versatile and […]
