Polymers Used

Thermoplastic Polymers represent a very wide range of materials, many of which are still unknown even to industry professionals.

GHEPI manufactures millions of components for different applications through the injection molding of Commodity Polymers, Technopolymers, Thermoplastic Elastomers, Biopolymers (biodegradable and compostable) and High Performance Polymers.

To meet specific thermal, tribological, mechanical and chemical requirements, GHEPI has in-depth experience in the use of the following High Performance Polymers:

  • PARA-PAMXD6 Polyarylamide
  • PA PACM 12 Micro-Crystal Polyamide
  • PAI Polyamide-imide
  • PPA Polyphthalamide
  • PEI Polyetherimide
  • PPS Polyphenylene Sulfide
  • LCP Liquid Crystal Polymers
  • PEEK Polyetheretherketone
  • PSU Polysulfone
  • PPSU Polyphenylsulfone
  • PAR Polarized
  • PVDF Polyvinylidene Fluoride

In-depth knowledge of materials is crucial in the project development phase, for this reason in GHEPI we pay close attention to the Preliminary Selection of Polymers.

GHEPI also conducts Research and Experimentation on Innovative Polymers, Nanocomposites and Biopolymers.
