The Advantages Of Thermoplastics (Agricultural Plastic):

  • Plastics are light weight, especially when compared to metals.
  • Durable and corrosion resistant.
  • Optimum load capacity with minimum wear.
  • Low Friction and Low Wear – increases part life and results in less down time.
  • Cost effective – overall very economical to produce.
  • Self-lubricating properties. This saves costs eliminating the use of lubrication fluids.
    External lubrication also causes problems with dust and grease build-up.
  • Resistant to environmental decay – will not rot, swell, splinter or degrade.
  • Very little soil adherence compared to metal counterparts.
