Pumps & valves

Browse through our portfolio of high performance plastics solutions for pumps & valves.

Making better mechanical parts

Building and construction are often resource-heavy activities. Today, engineering plastics can replace conventional materials in a wide variety of applications – improving performance while reducing environmental impact.

Our broad portfolio of materials cover a broad range of applications, from building materials to industrial lifting and pulling gears, and from road marking to machinery parts. Our composite materials are used to manufacture the massive façade panels that front office buildings –withstanding wear from extreme temperatures and harsh weather to extend the life of the panels. Our bio-based engineering plastics improve efficiency in window insulating profiles, and create an excellent barrier for roofing membranes.

Let’s talk about how our materials can improve your building and construction applications.

Featured customer applications

Convoluted Tubes

Industrial equipment | Pumps & valves

Akulon® PA6 allows for reliable solutions due to its good mechanical properties (stiffness and toughness); Stanyl® PA46 allows for reliable solutions due to its better temperature resistance in comparison with PA66

Hydrolic Hoses

Industrial equipment | Pumps & valves

Arnitel® TPC allows for reliable solutions due to its retention of flexibility even at temperatures down to -40°C or at elevated temperatures up to 100 ˚C; Arnitel® TPC allows for solutions with nice toch & feel characteristics

Pump Housings

Industrial equipment | Pumps & valves

Akulon® (UltraFlow) PA6 allows for reliable solutions due to its good mechanical properties (stiffness and toughness), its better surface appearance in comparison with PA66; Akulon® UltraFlow PA6 allows for even more cost effective solutions, since it enables faster moulding in comparison with standard PA6 and enables thinner wall designs;EcoPaXX® Q-DWX10 is suitable for hot water contact, shows excellent hydrolysis resistance and does not crack in the pressure test at -1°C. EcoPaXX® Q-DWX10 is a cost effective, reliable solution and is partially biobased.;ForTii® Ace WX53-FC is suitable for hot water contact, shows excellent hydrolysis resistance of the weldline strength and has great surface appearance. ForTii® Ace WX53-FC is suitable for industrial pumps and valves in for water and food contact applications operating at temperatures up to 130°C.

A scientific approach to building solutions

Our dedicated teams work closely with our customers to look at the entire process of developing new parts and components – whether it is a case of metal replacement, or developing solutions that are stronger, safer and more effective. Our methodical approach extends to every step of the process, from design and material performance to production and compliance.

  • Design

    Discover the new high-performing plastic solutions for the extreme demands of next-generation example.

  • Performance

    To ensure safety and part integrity, our high-performance plastics need to meet all of the relevant requirements for each application.

  • Production

    Improving on a part includes improving how it is produced. We can help you to improve the production and secondary operations processes.

  • Compliance

    Getting a part ready for commercialization includes ensuring compliance with the relevant regulations.
