Plastic Materials

The tools designed by TZ Tools to machine plastic materials are particularly suitable for use in the optics segment and for display material in general.

Plastic materials are products consisting of or containing, as their main ingredient, high molecular weight organic substances called polymers. While solid in their final state, during various stages of the manufacturing process polymers are sufficiently pliable to be moulded, exploiting in most cases the effect of temperature or pressure or both.

The benefits of plastic materials over metal and nonmetallic materials are ease of machining, low cost, colourability, good insulation (acoustic, thermal, electrical and mechanical), resistance to corrosion and chemical inertness, as well as water repellency and immunity to moulds, fungi and bacteria.
