Pumps & valves

Making better mechanical parts

Industrial equipment is driven by multitudes of mechanical parts. As we continue to develop new and better engineering plastics, we are helping our customers develop mechanical parts that are higher quality, safer, more sustainable, and more cost-efficient.

Advanced thermoplastics such as Stanyl® are increasingly used in a broad range of mechanical parts. These parts are lighter, stronger, more flexible, and more recyclable that parts made from traditional materials such as metal. This provides engineers with the freedom to design better and brighter equipment.

Our Akulon® material grades are proven effective in a wide range of applications from valves and pumps to gears and cable ties. And for industrial pipes and hoses, which are subject to extreme temperature ranges, our Arnitel® thermoplastic copolyester elastomer is ideal. As we continue to develop our portfolio, our materials are increasingly built around bio-chemical engineering. Our latest material, EcoPaXX®, is 70% bio-renewable.

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 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.
