Minnesota Rubber and Plastics specializes in metal to plastic component conversions using Qutoplex™ a proprietary high performance plastics (HPP). Proven to lower costs, reduce weight, increase corrosion resistance and perform better in many applications, Qutoplex™ is a new option for component designers.
Qutoplex™ is another “first” in the advances in HPP technologies allowing conversions of an increasing number of traditional metal parts to high performance plastic.
By replacing the aluminum component pictured with Qutoplex™, for example, weight is reduced along with lowered costs. In addition to reducing weight, additional savings are achieved by increased reliability through corrosion resistance. Another benefit is that many high performance plastic molded components can be recycled.
Minnesota Rubber and Plastics reviews each application ensuring the design and material selected are best suited for their intended application. When design is finalized, components are tested using finite element analysis (FEA) so that their thickness is optimized, eliminating excess plastic and reducing costs.
