Thermoset Plastics

Thermoset Plastic molding compounds (as molded by Akron Porcelain & Plastics since 1957) were developed primarily to satisfy the following molded part criteria:
    • High heat resistance while maintaining physical strength properties
    • Chemical resistance
    • Electrical insulation (arc & track resistance)
    • Dimensional stability

Materials Used – Phenolics, Glass Filled Polyesters (Bulk and Sheet Molding
Compounds), Structural Composites, Alkyds, Ureas

Thermoset materials from Akron Porcelain & Plastics differ from thermoplastic
molding compounds due to a change in chemistry that occurs during the
cure portion of the molding process. In short, the material "sets" up and
"kicks" over into a different chemistry that provides the desired
molded part characteristics as stated above.

Akron Porcelain & Plastics has the equipment, design
expertise for both parts and tools, and plant capacity
to handle any of your thermoset molded plastic needs!
