Rigid Plastics

ABS (Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Stryrene)

A thermoplastic known for lightness, rigidity and moldability. It comes in conductive and anti static grades, and is often used for material handling applications and housings for computer systems.

APET

Amorphous polyester material, rigid and clear, typically used for high volume, thin gauge packaging.

Kydex®
A brand of thermoplastic products from Kleerdex Company, LLG. It's an extremely durable combination of acrylic and PVC that can be formed or molded into a range of thicknesses and grades. Advantages include rigidity, impact strength, light weight and chemical resistance.

PETE
Polyethylene Terephthalate is clear, tough, and has excellent gas and moisture barrier properties. It's commonly used in soft drink bottles, injection molded consumer product containers, and both food and non-food containers.

PETG
A clear, tough, thermoplastic material that is easy to thermoform. It is ideal for medical applications because it stands up to radiation and chemical sterilization techniques without changing color.

Polycarbonate
A typically clear thermoplastic used for high temperature applications such as shatterproof windows, lightweight eyeglass lenses, and strong food service containers.

Polypropylene
A strong material with excellent chemical resistance and a high melting point, excellent for hot-fill liquids, flexible rigid packaging, and large molded parts for automotive and consumer products.

Polystyrene
A versatile, economical thermoplastic that can be rigid or foamed. Clear, hard and brittle, it is often used for packaging, containers, trays, and light duty material handling.
