Plastic Materials Engineering and Technical Support for Product Enhancement

Materials Technology Associates (MTA) has experts in the selection and use of elastomers, thermoplastics, and engineering plastics for a broad range of product applications. Areas of expertise include:

  • Extruded materials (polyolefins, PVC, polyesters, polyurethanes, fluoropolymers, etc.)
  • Filled/reinforced material applications
  • Precision elastomeric parts and pressure seals
  • Permeability, swelling, and surface properties
  • Engineering plastics/precision molded parts
  • Fiberglass applications
  • ISO 9000 procedures for raw material quality
MTA can deliver the technical results that your business may require.

Plastic materials display more complex behavior than what is assumed in most stress-strain analyses and process-flow analyses. The polymer molecular structure inherent in all plastics leads to time-temperature profiles, the generation of relaxation spectra, glass forming capabilities and physical aging, formation of crystalline regions (in some plastics), polymer filler interactions, crosslinking, and other important characteristics. Even the most straight forward product designs can exhibit unanticipated product performance problems, processing issues, and in some cases failure during use.

At MTA, we excel in applying our expertise in polymer behavior to plastic product design, materials selection, and processing to achieve the required levels of product performance and reliability. MTA can work with your product designers to provide the plastic materials engineering and technical support that your business needs.

In the case of processing problems, or product failure, MTA has the expertise to perform failure analysis to determine the underlying root cause(s) and offer practical solution options that can be implemented. MTA can provide an expert witness for litigations.
