Our products

Product category: Parts from high performance thermoplastics

Stock Shapes: Plates, Rods and Tubes

The name Ensinger is synonymous with a broad based range of production techniques capable of processing thermoplastic stock shapes in a wide variety of material choices under a single roof. It is often the material or the end product, that determines the processing method used: Whether it be for large scale volumes or small production runs; large and bulky or small and delicate parts - our engineering plastic stock shapes can be purchased in standard unmodified grades, in addition to a variety of modified grades to fit your application.

We offer high quality semi finished products made of over 100 different plastics. Besides all standard thermoplastics, Ensinger develops and extrudes a multitude of special materials according to customers' demands. Rods, sheets and tubes are offered in a range of small dimensional increments and with special properties to meet your requirements. Our products are manufactured by several different process techniques, which include plastic extrusion, plastic compression moulding, and plastic calendering, for a wide variety of high performance, engineering and industrial base polymers, in addition to having the ability to cast plastic sheets, plastic tubes and plastic rods from nylon. These machinable types of plastic are used as starting products for manufacturing precision finished parts. Furthermore, our customers can rest easy, safe in the knowledge that our products are fully compliant with stringent quality standards.

PEEK - Polyetheretherketone: TECAPEEK Ensinger Plastics

PEEK material (chemically known as polyetheretherketone) is manufactured by Ensinger in standard stock shapes for machining and is extruded in sheet, rod and tube using Victrex® PEEK 450G polymer. PEEK is a unique semi crystalline, engineering thermoplastic that also offers excellent chemical compatibility.

Parts manufactured from high temperature plastic PEEK polymer can also operate at temperatures up to 260°C (480°F) and have a melting point around 341°C (646°F). PEEK plastic is often used in hot water or steam environments while maintaining physical properties such as flexural and tensile strength on a high level. Polyetheretherketone is often viewed as one of the engineering thermoplastics that tends to command a high price, however experienced users have come to realise the added value that PEEK materials bring by offering the possibility of manufacturing parts that are lighter, stronger and able to survive longer in harsh environments.

PEEK plastics offer:
  • Very high temperature resistance
  • Exceptional chemical resistance
  • Good radiation resistance
  • Outstanding wear and abrasion resistance
  • Low smoke and toxic gas emissions
  • Excellent hydrolysis resistance (resistance to steam often used for sterilization)

Decades of experience in application engineering, development and production ensure high-quality service and delivery. Our materials specialists work tirelessly on the development and design of special compounds for injection moulding and extrusion. Their wealth of experience is a valuable aid in the development of the specialised compounds you need. The structure of the company, the specialisation of our employees and the wide range of versatile machinery at our disposal give us great flexibility, meaning that we can handle small quantities as well as material for series production.

We support you from sample production to high-volume production.

We are equipped with single shaft-extruders and double screw extruders. Depending on the machine type, we are able to handle small batches of 1 to 500 kg up to batch sizes of 80 t. Above all, Ensinger Compounds processes high-temperature polymers as well as engineering plastics. For some special requirements, we also offer standard plastics.

Sintered and Direct Formed Plastics

Ensinger’s TECASINT range of non-melting high temperature polyimides hold high strength, dimensional stability and creep strength even under persistent mechanical stress during long term usage. Low wear rates, high pV-rates and the ability to work in unlubricated conditions makes the material an ideal choice for challenging friction and wear applications, extending lifetime and reducing maintenance cost. Furthermore, TECASINT is commonly used for applications in the Vacuum, Space and Semicon industry, where high purity and low outgassing is essential.

Profiles, Tubes and Filaments

Ensinger demonstrates a high degree of excellence in engineering pro­files and special tubes from technical plastics for industrial ap­pli­ca­tions, with geometries and materials precisely tuned to the specific application. Profiles and tubes are manufactured with pressure and temperature-regulated ex­trusion. This is a continuous production pro­cess in which plastics are plastified in an extruder and then forced at pressure through a spe­cial­ly shaped die.

Injection Moulded Finished Parts

In our state-of-the-art injection moulding plant in Rottenburg-Ergen­zingen, we produce sophisticated precision components and com­plete assemblies. Together with multi-component injection moul­ding, in­sert­/­over moulding is also gaining increasingly in signifi­cance. Our customers are offered a wide-ranging selection of high-performance plastics: Polyimid PI, PEEK, PPS, PAI, PVDF, and many others including individually tailored, filled compounds.

TECARIM: Shock Resistant and Robust

Nyrim casting is a specialised casting process suitable for small and medium quantities and for semi-finished or moulded parts. The products are highly robust, abrasion-resistant and suitable for applications involving extreme loads. A polymer additive has been added to the PA 6 C base material to create an especially impact-resistant polyamide 6 block copolymer. The material properties can be adjusted depending on the specific application. Composites, insert components and textile reinforcements can also be manufactured. Ensinger uses Nyrim from Brüggemann for TECARIM products.
