Engineering Plastics – A Huge Depth of Knowledge
Especially relevant is that customers know Sentinel Plastics is a long standing, trusted Plastics Company. Since its inception in 1989, it has been machining and fabricating all types of industrial plastics. Whether your requirement is one off or high batch work, the capacity available does enable us to offer shorter lead times.

Most noteworthy as a well-established Engineering Plastics Supplier CNC machining and Plastic fabrication company based in Cradley Heath in the West Midlands. Sentinel Plastics Ltd has an already large customer base, which includes many long term blue chip customers.
Engineering plastics are a group of plastic materials that have better mechanical and/or thermal properties than the more widely used commodity plastics (such as polystyrene, PVC, polypropylene and polyethylene). plastic machined parts.
A little more on Engineering Plastics
Being more expensive, engineering plastics are produced in lower quantities and tend to be used for smaller objects or low-volume applications (such as mechanical parts), rather than for bulk and high-volume ends (like containers and packaging).
The term usually refers to thermoplastic materials rather than thermosetting ones. Examples of engineering plastics include acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), used for car bumpers, dashboard trim and Lego bricks; polycarbonates, used in motorcycle helmets; and polyamides (nylons), used for skis and ski boots.
Engineering plastics have gradually replaced traditional engineering materials such as wood or metal in many applications. Besides equalling or surpassing them in weight/strength and other properties. Engineering plastics are much easier to manufacture, especially in complicated shapes.
