About Milling and Mining Plastics
Operating environments in mining industries are abrasive, noisy and generally tough on materials. A wide range of engineering plastics, such as Nylon, UHMW, HDPE, and many more, are used for a variety of applications in the mining industry, especially for material handling and transportation. For example, plastics deliver tremendous wear resistance, impact resistance and corrosion resistance for applications such as truck and rail car liners, as well as, sheaves, gears and other wear-resistant parts needed for milling, cutting, cleaning and separating. Polymershapes’ portfolio of engineering plastic includes hundreds of grades that can reduce weight and power requirements, eliminate costly lubrication, and increase Mean Time Between Repair (MTBR), all while improving your ability to meet stringent quality and reliability metrics.
