PIM Specific Properties

Thermoplastics are polymers that can be melted and recast almost indefinitely.

We use the following polymers:

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene

  • tough, heat resistant, recastable
  • used in pipe systems, automotive parts and kitchen appliances


  • high level ductility, impact resistance, recyclability
  • used in plastic containers and bags


  • resistant to breaking
  • used for greenhouses, eyewear lenses, medical devices, automotive components and phones


  • high level stability, resistant to abrasion, impact and chemicals
  • used in medical products, automotive products and sports equipment

High Impact Polystyrene

  • low cost, has good dimensional stability and rigidity
  • used for food packaging


  •  flexible, high melting point, high resistance to stress and cracking
  • used in utensils, athletic apparel, area rugs and automotive parts
