Main applications of engineering plastics in construction sector are as listed below.
- Sliding bears
- Bears and chain guides
- Rotary and sliding mobile machine parts
- Supporting wedges
- Abrason plates
Material is selected due to characteristic properties. Some of the most widely used engineering plastics are cast polyamide, PTFE, PE 1000 (PE-UHMW) and PE 100 (HDPE).
PE 1000 products are used for damper and dipper linings unlike other engineering plastics. Lining provides faster material transport, non-adhesive material surface, easier cleaning and increased excavation volume.
Dampers with PE 1000 lining can empty materials with lower angles, as seen from above values. These advantages gained with lining allows excavation trucks to drive more at the same time period and increases efficiency.
