Micro Materials

Thermoplastics

Thermoplastics are polymers that become pliable and moldable above a specific temperature, and return to a solid state upon cooling. This property makes thermoplastics an ideal choice for micromolding miniatures like Ultem Screws, Thin-Walled Micro Links and Ejector Rings.
