> Special polymers and engineering polymers or techno-polymers are classes of thermoplastic polymers with high mechanical, thermal and chemical performance with innumerable uses, in fact they are capable of replacing metals in many applications, such as bronze, brass, light aluminum alloys.
The advantages are concrete in terms of technology, cost-effectiveness, clear improvement of production methods and results obtained.
The properties behind polymers make them more advantageous than metals:
- Chemical and corrosion resistant
- Low friction coefficient
- Electrical insulation
Roboze technology, with its high performance polymers, such as Carbon PA and PEEK, combines the advantages of metal replacement with the advantages of additive technology.
Our new 3D Technology editorial blog will cover the advantages of metal replacement: every week we will provide in-depth investigation and analysis of the advantages achieved with metal replacement.
