Plastics and Phenolics

PlasticMaterial

SGM has been at the forefront of thermoset laminates and plastic machining, since the 1960’s. Shortly after the creation of our Sister-Company, Atlas Fibre Co. (AFC), a master distributor of numerous plastic raw materials and the national leader for thermoset laminate rod and sheet supply, SGM solidified our position as a truly multi-faceted manufacturer. Our vertical integration with AFC enables SGM to cut out the compounding material markups that other manufacturers are forced to accept, allowing us to pass these savings along to our customers. Combined with our machining experience, SGM is uniquely positioned as a true pioneer and veteran of the industry. Such mastery of thermoset laminate/phenolic components places SGM in an unquestionably elite class of specialized manufacturers - within this select group, we can confidently state that no competitor is able to match SGM’s breadth of capabilities.

While SGM works with virtually every plastic material, the following materials are frequently machined in our shop.
