Sustatec: New Custom Stock-Shapes Plant

Sustatec LLC, USA, a custom extruder of plastic rod, sheet, and tube, has opened its first U.S. plant for high-performance engineering stock shapes for machining. The company was created in late 2001 by Sustaplast AG, itself part of Rochling Plastics Group, in Mannheim, Germany. Sustatec is separate from Sustaplast, a sister company that supplies standard stock shapes from inventory. Sustatec’s new 25,000-sq- ft facility extrudes shapes from specialty compounds of performance polymers like PEEK, PPS, PBT, PC/PBT, and ABS. These are modified with carbon fibers and other reinforcements, as well as flame retardants, lubricants, conductive fillers, and other additives.
