Ryton® PlasticsPerfect for machined components requiring precise tolerances
- Excellent chemical resistance
- Can be engineered to accommodate tight tolerances
- Ideal for corrosive environments
Ryton plastics deliver dimensional stability and provide excellent resistance to a wide range of chemicals. They are inert to acids, fuels, steam, and bases, have no known solvents below 392° Fahrenheit, and absorb minimal amounts of moisture. These properties combine with high levels of strength and rigidity to make Ryton the ideal choice for a large variety of parts and components.
How Aztec Plastic uses Ryton
Its strength, combined with resistance to chemicals and high temperatures, allow Ryton to be used in applications like down the hole (DTH) oil and gas equipment components, as high temperature insulators, and as plastic parts in the automotive, electrical, and industrial appliance industries. Specific components often composed of Ryton include:
- Lantern rings
- Pump bodies
- Test fixtures
- Thrust washers
- Valve components
We create highly precise components
In addition to the properties mentioned, Ryton plastic is an excellent choice, because it can be easily fabricated to meet component specifications. It cuts and machines well to allow extremely precise tolerances to be met. Using Ryton plastic is an option Aztec Plastic often considers for many automotive, oil and gas, and electrical applications.
