Thermoset Materials Offer Highly Desirable Characteristics

When corrosion resistance, weight minimization, noise reduction, and significant cost savings are key considerations, we have the materials to meet the standards you’ve set in any, or all, of those areas.

Our thermoset molding compounds offer several key features:

  • Exceptional Dimensional Stability
  • Resistance to Creep Under Mechanical Load at Elevated Temperatures
  • Excellent Thermal Properties

At Westmoreland Plastics, we have experience processing these kinds of plastics:

  • Carbon Graphite Phenolic
  • Diallyl Phthalate (DAP)
  • Electrical Grade Phenolic
  • Epoxy
  • General Purpose Phenolic
  • Glass-Filled Phenolic
  • Heat Resistant Phenolic
  • Impact Resistant Phenolic
  • Melamine
  • Special Grade Phenolic
  • Thermoset Polyesters or Bulk Molding Compounds
  • Urea

Our thermoset materials are used in a wide range of products, including:

  • Aerospace Controls
  • Appliance Components (Bases, Caps, Decorative Trim, Handles, Knobs and Plugs)
  • Capacitor Caps
  • Circuit Breaker Boxes & Panels
  • Connectors
  • Fuse Blocks
  • Metering Devices for Gas, Water and Electricity
