High Performance Plastics

Not every plastics molder can produce high quality components from high performance materials. Even fewer offer the range of high performance / high temperature materials found at Minnesota Rubber and Plastics.

These materials, and our hot manifold and hot runner systems, represent our core business. And our customers have come to rely on our ability to develop, design and produce their components and assemblies, cost-effectively, from a wide range of material offerings.

High performance materials have extensive performance ranges and unique property attributes. 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.
