Engineering Plastics

Ever since the introduction of plastics man has continously indentified more applications in which plastics substitute previously existing materials, such as wood , metals and glass. Plastics offer the advantages of easy machineability , hand-ling and fabrication. due to the low specific gravity and energy efficient production methods, their cost per part of most plastics is often lower than the cost of parts made of traditional materials.Some plastics are highly resistant to many chemicals , electrolytic conversion and certainly rust.

ZELLAMID® is an internationally recognised trademark that symbolises semi finished plastic materials for the machining industry produced with granules from the worlds leading suppliers.Zell-Metall stock shapes are produced on single screw multiple head fully automatic extrusion lines and meet the special requirements of our customers. All Zellamid’s products are annealed and stress relieved. We offer a range of highly developed products.

ZELLAMID® is supplied in standard sizes, both metric and inch according to DIN and ASTM specification. Plate and sheet can be planed and rod can be centerless ground as required to meet specific market demands.

ZELLAMID® products are annealed and stress relieved and put through a demanding quality control system, certified according to ISO 9001.

ZELLAMID® is available in following shapes:

· Rod

· Plate and Sheet


ZELLAMID® 1000 is ideal for high strength plus high heat applications and those requiring excellent electrical insulating properties which are stable over wide ranges of temperature and frequency. It is hydrolysis resistant, highly resistant to a broad range of chemicals though chemical resistance is strongly dependent on stress.

ZELLAMID® 1100 (Cast Nylon 6)

ivory, black, blue and custom colours

This material is a heavy duty, high impact and chemical resistant material appropriate for larger parts. It has high wear resistance at low and middle speeds and performs especially well under harsh conditions such as contact with sand or dust. Due to its balanced mechanical properties and its exceptional machineability it is the ideal engineering material for a wide range of applications.
