Abcite(reg) 1060 thermoplastic powder coating is based on the same polymer chemistry as Surlyn ionomer resin, which is used as a golf ball cover. Abcite maintains impact resistance over a -20 to 120F temperature range and is used in the Thick-Coat Z-Bar football face mask for use by linemen and players in other contact-intensive positions. Abcite is UV-stable, and colors do not yellow or fade.

Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
