The CHawk Triangle of Plastics is a visual list of the commonly manufactured stock shape engineering plastic materials. As you move up the triangle, you increase in heat resistance, performance and cost. All of theses materials can either machined, formed, fabricated or injection molded. When your volume gets larger and you start looking at injection molding, the resin combinations grows 100x.
Most of these materials can be manufactured as a near net shape which saves both machine time and material cost. To learn more visit our near net shapes page.
