Moulage de piece

UHMW-PE plastic moulding

Strong, Lightweight and Economical

Soucy Plastiques, a subsidiary of Soucy group, uses a direct compression moulding (DCM) process. From a UHMW-PE powder, a wide range of parts can be manufactured in accordance with client requests. Whether machined or integrated with other materials such as rubber, these parts offer better abrasion resistance, and are subject to various quality tests, e.g., physical testing, test benches and virtual simulations.

UHMW-PE: Stronger, lighter and less expensive.

Parts from 1 lbs to 265 lbs.

Presess from 100 to 1000 tons.

The advantages of UHMW-PE:

  • Less expensive than steel and other metals
  • Suitable to the manufacture of complex or detailed parts
  • Ideal for combining multiple parts into a single one
  • Corrosion resistant, providing a perfect alternative to metal
  • Resistant to abrasion, wear and impact, more than carbon steel
  • Excellent adhesion to rubber and metals
  • Nontoxic, approved by the FDA and USDA, which is ideal for food applications
  • Self-lubricating
  • Slippery, with a low coefficient of friction
  • Flexible, with a memory after deformation
  • Unbreakable, with high break elongation
  • Inert and resistant to many chemicals
  • Sound absorbing, unlike metals
  • Waterproof, does not swell
  • Lightweight
  • Resistant to a wide range of temperatures (-73 °to 80 °C)
  • Antistatic
  • Recyclable
  • Thermo-dimensionally stable
  • Suitable to the making of coloured parts, and even patterned ones
