ABS: High strength engineering plastic, used for many commercial products.
Acrylic: A clear glass-like plastic. Good wear and tear properties. Great for outdoor use.
Delrin (Acetal): Resin with good moisture resistance, high wear resistance, and low friction.
HDPE (high-density polyethylene): A moisture and chemical-resistant plastic with good impact strength. The material is outstanding for outdoor applications as well as for watertight containers or seals. HDPE for CNC machining is typically white.
Nylon 6/6: Offers increased mechanical strength, rigidity, good stability under heat and/or chemical resistance.
PC (Polycarbonate): With almost twice the tensile strength of ABS, polycarbonate has superior mechanical and structural properties. Used widely in automotive, aerospace, and other applications that require durability and stability. Solid infill parts are fully dense.
PEEK: Offering excellent tensile strength, PEEK is often used as a lightweight substitute for metal parts in high-temperature, high-stress applications. PEEK resists chemicals, wear, and moisture.
Polypropylene: Has excellent electrical properties and little or no moisture absorption. It carries light loads for a long period in widely varying temperatures. It can be machined into parts requiring chemical or corrosion resistance.
PTFE (Teflon): This material surpasses most plastics when it comes to chemical resistance and performance in extreme temperatures. It resists most solvents and is an excellent electrical insulator.
PVC (polyvinyl chloride): A highly chemical-resistant synthetic plastic, PVC is common in environments that are exposed to liquids or that require electrical insulation. PVC is also self-extinguishing and is utilized in places where flame retardance is required. PVC for CNC machining (Type 1) is typically gray.
UHMW PE: Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene. A general-purpose material. It offers a unique combination of wear and corrosion resistance, low surface friction, high impact strength, high chemical resistance, and does not absorb moisture.
