Polytech Plastics (Australasia) is heavily involved in the supply and machining of PLASTIC products to the MINING INDUSTRY. Polytech Plastics (Australasia)  has been involved in the mining industry for many years and their services include design work, product development, engineering solutions to produce innovative answers to you requests as well as being able to manufacture these items in either small or large runs.We know the benefits of plastics and can apply them in your situation to bring improvements in the mining industry.  Some of these benefits are:

  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Less downtime
  • Less weight converting to lower energy costs
  • Ability to test production in small scale before committing to large capital expenditure
  • Help in compliance with OH & S legislation
  • Higher production output

 Some of the special advantages of plastics that can be utilised in the mining industry are that they give / are:  (a)  Noise reduction, (b) weight savings,(c) corrosion resistance, (d) Impact resistance,  (e) Low friction / self-lubricating,(f) abrasion resistance, (g) Optical clarity, (h) Ease of machining and fabrication, (i) environmentally friendly (j)  reduction in maintenance and downtime and they have (k) Inherent Colour so that they continue to look new long after other items have degraded.The Team at Polytech Plastics (Australasia) make it their responsibility to keep up with the latest technology worldwide and apply it for you.  Some of the items that we have applied our experience in the mining industry are:
