Thermoplastics are processed into semi-finished or finished products by using various manufacturing processes, i.e. chiefly machining but also moulding, stamping and extrusion.

The resulting products are available in the following forms:

  • Plates
  • Tubes
  • Bars
  • Machined parts
  • Injection-moulded parts
  • Stamped parts
  • Cut parts
  • Extruded profiles

The thermoplastics in the GPLAST range are used in particular for the following industrial applications :

  • Resistance to extreme temperatures (> 300 °C continuous, 500 °C intermittent)
  • Dimensional stability at high temperature
  • Resistance to wear and friction
  • Electrical and dielectric insulation
  • Thermal insulation
  • Chemical and hydrolysis resistance
  • Mechanical strength and rigidity (e.g. shock resistance)
  • Dissipation of electrostatic charges
  • Resistance to UV rays and atmospheric agents
  • Resistance to high-energy radiation (X rays and gamma rays)
  • Resistance to high-temperature creep
  • Inert food contact
  • Excellent fire resistance and low toxicity of combustion fumes (GRAIL range), etc.

…. and are intended mainly for the following industrial sectors :

  • Chemical and petrochemical
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Agri-food
  • Aeronautics and space
  • Nuclear
  • Energy
  • Metallurgical
  • Paper
  • Textiles
  • Glass
  • Electrical and electronic
  • etc.
