IndustriesAustin Plastics & Supply has versatile plastics with specific properties for every industry.
We offer plastic products that are temperature, water and chemical resistant, medical grade, FDA food grade, light weight, machinable and thermoformable.
Plastics such as PVC, PET, Nylon, and PVC play a very important role in industries such as aerospace, electrical, healthcare and medical, oil and gas, manufacturing, semiconductor and technology.
All plastics have unique qualities and characteristics making them ideal for specific industry applications. We can recommend the plastic product that meets your most demanding application
ELECTRICAL- The electrical industries have unique demands, that require material suppliers to provide multiple grades coupled with extensive research and development capabilities. The electrical and insulating properties of plastics coupled with corrosion, heat and water resistance make them ideal for electrical components. Some plastics used in this industry include PEEK Themoplastics, Polypropylene, PVC, PTFE, and PET are popular materials for wiring, cabling, electrical and sleeving.
GALLERIES AND MUSEUM QUALITY DISPLAY CASES- Acrylic is a perfect material for art conservation due to its optical clarity, light weight and available UV-filtering, non-glare, anti-static and abrasion resistant coatings. Clear acrylic is the optimal alternative to the darkness of glass and its opaque structural supports are no longer a necessity. Acrylic museum display cases can be built to your specifications or designed to your project requirements.
HEALTHCARE, MEDICAL & LABORATORY- Polymers have become better suited to healthcare applications as they offer lighter weight, better biocompatibility and lower cost. Plastics used include PVC, polypropylene, polyethylene, polystyrene as well as nylon, PET, polycarbonate, ABS, PEEK and polyurethane. The most widely used plastic material in medical applications is PVC as single use pre-sterilized applications. It is a versatile plastic used in medical applications for over 50 years.
MANUFACTURING- Plastics are used in an enormous and growing range of products, from paper clips to spaceships because of their relatively low cost, ease of manufacture, versatility, and imperviousness to water. They have already replaced traditional materials, such as leather, wood, stone, paper, metal, glass, and ceramic.
OIL AND GAS- The oil and gas industry benefits from the usage of high performance polymers (plastics). Various plastics are being used for a wide array of oil and energy applications as they possess unique combinations of electrical, wear, chemical, and temperature resistance. Plastic machined products’ role in the oil and gas industry has grown and become more visible as the reliability and added advantages over metals has become more apparent. Some common plastics used in the oil and gas industry are: PEEK, PVDF and PPS. High-grade machined plastic components with excellent physical and chemical properties are being increasingly used by offshore reserves as the same are helping greatly in various applications like exploration, delivery process and development.
SEMICONDUCTOR AND TECHNOLOGY- The semiconductor and technology industries design and manufacture of vast number products from semiconductor wafers and components, to business equipment and consumer electronic devices. Plastics are an essential part of the processes and equipment used by companies in this industry. Plastic materials and fabricated products make the technology we use today possible. These plastics must have high purity and cleanliness, as well as light weight and resistance to chemicals and heat. Plastic materials used in the production of electronics and other technology products include; Polycarbonate, PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) and PVC (polyvinyl chloride).
