Why Work With a Custom Plastic Manufacturer and Fabricator

Every project is different, and a material that works well for one application may not be suitable for another. In some cases, you may require custom composite materials not found anywhere else.

Atlas Fibre has the largest selection of in-stock and custom materials available on the North American continent. Our warehouse in Illinois has more than $8 million of inventory in stock. We also have partner facilities with an additional $4 million worth of materials. When you work with us, you gain the confidence of knowing that we’ll have the materials you need and the ability to machine or fabricate your parts when you require them.

Beyond our vast inventory, we also have the depth of experience to create truly custom materials specifically tailored towards your project to achieve the ideal blend of price and performance.

We aim to be a resource center for the industries we serve. When you partner with us, we’ll work together to help you choose the right materials. Our services extend far beyond providing finished parts.

Examples of Custom Thermoplastics and Thermosets

We have several types of custom materials available, including Matrix HT and Carbon fiber.

Carbon Fiber

Carbon fiber is made from filaments of carbon that are heated and stretched into thin fibers. The long, thin fibers are then braided or woven into a fabric.

This material has a reputation for being lightweight but strong. It’s ideal for industries that value strength and low weight, such as the consumer goods, automotive, and aerospace industries.

Carbon fiber comes in multiple formats, including sheets, fabric, and braids. Often, the material is combined with a resin to produce a sturdy composite.

Matrix HT

Matrix HT is a relatively new thermoset composite material. It consists of a mix of high-temperature resin binders and woven fiberglass. It can retain its insulating and mechanical properties up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.

The material has excellent impact strength and flexural strength. It won’t melt at high temperatures and is also resistant to chemicals, acids, alkaline materials, and moisture. Matrix HT retains its strength, unlike thermoplastics.

Benefits of Custom Materials

There are numerous benefits to using custom materials for your projects. You receive the peace of mind of knowing that the materials you’ve chosen meet your exact specifications. You can also select composites that fulfill your needs, whether you’re looking for high strength, moisture resistance or temperature resistance.
