Why Are Thermoplastics So Useful?

Why Are Thermoplastics So Useful?Here at Budwig Molded Products, we use a special type of plastic polymer to make all of our rubber bumper feet. This type of plastic is called thermoplastic. Thermoplastic is one of the most popular types of industrial plastic polymers, because it is easy to melt, shape, and reform. This makes it ideal to turn into the rubber bumper feet that our clients order.

Plastics can be made with an almost unlimited array of features. There are extremely hard plastics, very brittle plastics, soft plastics, and even thermosetting polymers which cannot be melted and reshaped. Out of all these different combinations, we believe our proprietary Santoprene™ thermoplastic rubber is the very best option for our products. Even within our own inventory, we can tweak the plastic formula by adding polypropylene or polyethylene to change the characteristics of your order. Just give us a call, let us know what you want, and we can work with you!
