Services: Resin Selection
Resin selection bridges the gap between the design and function of your parts. It helps to ensure that they:
- Meet all your tolerancing, quality, performance, and cost requirements.
- Will perform well in their end-use environment.
- Will help you keep your options open in the event of supply chain instability.
We thoroughly consider the mechanical characteristics, molding properties, and cost-effectiveness of each resin option to help you make an informed decision.
Our engineers are trained to assist in helping you select the best-fitting resin, and potential alternatives, to provide you with the highest quality and most cost-effective solution. We have access to a broad network of suppliers that enable us to go the extra mile for our customers.
We prefer to work with ASTM standards, rather than having one resin grade or brand specified on a print. That gives us greater flexibility with material obsolescence or supply chain instability issues. These standards are well-defined, which provides you with multiple resin options while mitigating risk. They also make it easier for us to recommend resins based on price, availability, and end-use environment and application.
