3P offers the right high performance plasticand plastic compounds for demanding industries
3P is an expert in high performance polymer materials, and products or composite solutions based on these materials.
With 50 years’ experience, 3P has first developed PTFE solutions and has rapidly developed a deep knowledge of similar materials. This led 3P to develop tools and know-how around other fluoropolymers, but also around PEEK and PI polymer families. The large panel of materials allows 3P to develop expertise in a growing number of applications.
High performance plastics properties: PTFE, fluoropolymer, PEEK…
Low or high temperature
purity and chemical inertness
On all demanding solutions, high performance materials reach performance that more usual materials can’t withstand. This is especially true when you meet complex needs, with a combination of these challenges. For example, long life and benefits on maintenance (for example with self-lubricating solutions) of high performance polymer give important advantages on TCO (Total cost of ownership, the total cost during full product life) compared to engineering plastics.
These materials are also more and more used in substitution to metal parts, where lightweight allow better efficiency of the overall system.
Strong partnerships with material suppliers offer fine customization of solutions
Thanks to this strong experience, 3P has developed a close collaboration with all historical or emerging suppliers of high performance polymers and compounds.
With a deep knowledge of available grades and fillers for high performance compounds, 3P assists the developments of your solution based on standard or custom materials.
Our global sourcing strategy ensures the best price for suitable properties.
When usual grades of materials can’t fulfill your specific needs, 3P’s technical teams dedicate themselves to truly helping you in finding the right materials and associated transformation processes in accordance to your needs. 3P can suggest new material associations, and develop proprietary compounds.
