What is engineering plastic molded parts?
Engineering plastic molded parts are made of engineering plastics, through injection molding process, the engineering plastics, such as ABS, PC, POM, are molded into parts with desired shape and measurement. Parts made of engineering plastics have better mechanical and thermal properties, it can be used as a replacement of metal in many applications, for example, plastic auto parts, medical parts, electronic parts, household parts etc.

List of engineering plastic widely used:

Application of engineering plastic molded parts:
Auto parts such car bumpers, back-seats, handles etc
Medical device
Electronic parts
Household parts
