Thermoplastic materials can be found at our every touch. The application of thermoplastic materials has been synonymous with modern technology. Though The Gund Company's core focus continues to be thermoset composite materials, we also fabricate custom thermoplastic components according to our customer's requirements.
The Gund Company typically fabricates thermosplastic materials as a complement to our customer's other thermoset component requirements. Typical examples include polycarbonate or acrylic sight windows for switchgear or transformer applications. In addition, teflon material finds common application as both a slip plane and relatively high temperature thermosplastic. The Gund Company has also developed a specialty grade of flame retardant polypropylene Grade PolyPro FR™ for the replacement of vulcanized fiber in electrical switchgear applications.
