A hardwearing pure white plastic

  • Will drill and tap well.
  • Excellent bearing material with high mechanical strength and rigidity.

NYLON 66 BALLS (ZYTEL 101®)


  • A natural coloured material often used as a replacement for steel and metal.
  • Tough material suitable for machining and considered as an engineering resin.
  • Resistance to abrasion and many chemicals, generally used for strength and impact resistance.

PHENOLIC


This material is that used for snooker balls and is:

  • Available many colours
  • Available in 15mm to around 3” diameter.
  • Hard material and a highly polished finished ball

  • Some colours available and white as standard.
  • Available as a hollow ball PP/PE from ¼” to 150mm diameter.
  • Able to withstand high pressures
  • Super chemical resistance properties, often used in engineering application.
  • FDA approval on Polypropylene

POLYETHYLENE BALLS – LOW DENSITY AND HIGH DENSITY


Solid and hollow balls that float in water (less than 1g/cc).

  • Some colours available but white as standard.
  • Available as a hollow ball PP/PE from ¼” to 150mm diameter
  • Has good chemical resistance properties
  • Available with FDA approval

POLYSTYRENE BALLS


Limited chemical resistance

This material often used in medical applications or packaging.


PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) BALLS


An inert material

  • Soft white in appearance, low friction fluoropolymer
  • Withstands very high temperatures and has outstanding chemical resistance.
  • Hollow PTFE balls are also available.

THERMOSET BALLS


Similar to snooker balls but lighter weight – perfect for design work.
