Corrosion Resistant Polymer Material Selection

Material Selection

High Temperature Polymer Materials

The selection of proper corrosion resistant polymer materials to use in an application is both an art and science.  Many variables go into determining the appropriate combination of materials to use in any given part. 

Material Specific Considerations

  • Modulus of elasticity
  • Hardness
  • Tear and cut strength
  • Compression set
  • Chemical compatibility 
  • Temperature range
  • Resilience
  • Tensile strength
  • Coefficient of friction

Design Specific Considerations

  • Bonding to other materials
  • Operating environment
  • Customer supplied property
  • Material density
  • Dynamic loading
  • Part shape and profile

Details Addressed

Once the design and material-specific considerations have been addressed, it is necessary to select the appropriate material.  To do this, Whitefield Plastics offers an extensive selection of high performance polymers and formulations to meet your specific needs.
