Composites are the result of combining material technologies. Although many combinations of materials can produce composites, Plastics Unlimited focuses on fibers, primarily fiberglass and carbon fiber, that we combine with a resin. Some of the resins we currently use are polyester, vinyl ester, urethane, and epoxies.
Along with basic composites manufacturing, we have developed and patented an industry-changing process called TEC® (Tooless Engineered Composites). This process combines the speed of thermoforming with the strength and durability of composites.
Thermoforming (thermoformed plastic shell) + composites (fiberglass reinforcement for more overall strength) = TEC®. Learn the details about our TEC® manufacturing process.
Composite parts are strong, lightweight, corrosion-resistant, and dimensionally stable. These products can be used in a variety of applications, such as recreational, industrial, agricultural, and medical.
High-strength, lightweight, premium composite materials such as carbon fiber and epoxies have been used for aerospace, high-performance sporting goods, performance cars, and other high-end applications for many years.
Plastics Unlimited is helping to bring down the cost of premium composites like carbon fiber. By implementing new resin infusion and out-of-autoclave technology, more industrial, agricultural, and lower-cost applications are discovering the value of carbon composites.
Our experienced staff will help you find a solution that will work best for each individual application. We take the time to make sure we completely understand your needs. We do this so we can provide you with the best materials and processes. Our comprehensive due diligence ensures that we will make you the best possible composite products for your application.
Plastics Unlimited started as a thermoforming company over a quarter of a century ago. We’ve evolved into a composites company, as well, and we continue to learn and grow as a leading plastics manufacturer every day.
If strong, lightweight, corrosion-resistant, and dimensionally stable plastic parts are on your purchasing list, contact us today to find out how we can help with all of your company’s composites needs.
Plastics Unlimited is a leader in many different types of value-added assembly. This includes gluing, adding brackets, screens, plates for mounting hardware, stickers and logos, rivets, rivnuts, windows, VHB tape, and much more. We can also glue together and combine multiple parts made from plastic. This allows for many different benefits, such as added strength, the ability to add hidden hardware, and much more.
