Piper Plastics can assist you in selecting the correct material for your application and can offer alternative plastic solutions to help solve existing technical problems. We can custom formulate compounds using many resins available on the market today. Our experts will ensure the highest quality, most cost-effective material - whether it is injection molded near net shape, extruded, compression molded, or formed.
Kyron® High Performance Compounds Portfolio
The Kyron materials portfolio contains nearly any base resin for stiffness, heat resistance, or dimensional tolerances. Kyron compounds that are based on high temperature resins excel in demanding high heat and chemical environments.
Piper Plastics uses a broad range of resins for their Kyron products.
- Nylon 6/6
All Kyron compounds can be custom formulated to meet specific engineering requirement, including strength, stiffness, heat resistance, chemical resistance, and dimensional stability. High performance products can be used in demanding high temperature and chemical environments.
KYRON PRODUCT LINE HIGHLIGHTS
KyronMAX™ High Strength Structural Compounds
Part of the Kyron product portfolio, KyronMAX bridges the gap between conventional injection moldable filled polymers and expensive lay-up composites. It is a unique combination of a proprietary high pressure molding technology, coupled with a state-of-the-art material technology that produces high strength structural components.

- Tensile strength to weight ratio - Higher than steel.
- Weight - Almost 75% lighter than steel and almost 40% lighter than aluminum.
- Higher product performance due to better knit line strength - Lower filler levels reduce the
knit line effect and increase the strength of the molded part.
- Better "practical toughness" due to lower filler loadings - Lower filler content increases the
material's elongation at yield which results in the ability for the part to yield and not fracture.
- Lower filler loadings than traditional thermoplastic compounds - Lower filler levels promote
a larger processing window and reduce weight.
KyronMAX Structural Thermoplastic Materials Consistently Outperform the Mechanical Strength of Long Fiber Thermoplastic Compounds
Responding to customer demand for the strongest moldable polymers available without all the process and design limitations associated with LFT polymers, Piper plastics offers a unique solution: KyronMAX structural thermoplastics materials. KyronMAX materials overcome all the limitations associated with LFT compounds while yielding stronger molded parts that are also lighter in weight. For more information, please click here.
Near Net Shape Technology for Kyron Polymers
Piper Plastics has developed a proprietary high pressure molding technology that yields near net shape polymers up to 2” thick without porosity, voids or sinks. The process, which utilizes molding equipment designed and developed by Piper, allows the company to mold high performance thermoplastics, filled or unfilled, with isotropic mechanical properties.
