Elesa has published a white paper The use of Super-Technopolymer as a substitute for metal/stainless steel in standard machine components, written by Elesa UK Managing Director Nigel Pritchett. Elesa has extensive experience in the development and use of advanced engineering plastics as an alternative to metal for standard components used in machinery and industrial/scientific equipment. The white paper describes how super-technopolymers are being used and the many advantages they offer to machine builders and end users.
Comparisons are made between super-technopolymers versus current technopolymers and between super-sechnopolymer versus metal alloys in terms of basic physical properties. The white paper goes on to describe typical product classes that benefit from the use of super-technopolymers and identifies the main advantages.
