Plastic & Thermoplastic Elastomer Materials

Minnesota Rubber and Plastics specializes in the design and molding of close tolerance, high performance thermoplastics and thermoplastic elastomers.

We also work with engineered plastics and specialize in finding the most efficient and innovative means of reducing costs while improving product performance. Our specialty services include hot plate welding, two shot molding, product testing, assembly and packaging. In addition, our unified project management system accelerates product launch and time-to-market.

High Performance Plastics

 As manufacturers require higher levels of performance and lower costs from materials, we continue to meet their needs for a wide range of markets from aerospace and automotive to consumer and off-road.

Superior Performance

For applications that include unique or demanding requirements, a high performance polymer often provides an effective material and design solution.

Thermoset Plastics vs Thermoplastics

 As manufacturers require higher levels of performance and lower costs from materials, we continue to meet their needs for a wide range of markets from aerospace and automotive to consumer and off-road.

Temperature Resistance of Thermoplastics

By means of independent tests, Minnesota Rubber and Plastics has published performance results that demonstrate continuous use temperature above the Tg.

Thermoplastic Elastomers

Engineered thermoplastic elastomers (TPE’s), are one of the most versatile plastics available today. Our wide range of TPE’s combine many of the performance properties of thermoset rubber with the processing ease of plastic thereby providing design options and greater cost-reduction opportunities.
