Plastic Material Selection

Why Ontario Plastics?    Having molded 500+ different resins, our experience is valuable.

Only use the materials that are best for you
Ontario Plastics is experienced in molding over 500 different grades of resins and analyzing/selecting the right plastics for you.

Material analysis is a vital process that determines what specific material is best for your application. This is critical because different materials are more effective in different applications (e.g., metal to plastic conversions). By utilizing our knowledge and experience, we can determine the most appropriate material necessary to meet your standards and requirements.


  • Take advantage of our material database experience to select the right material for you.
  • Consider mechanical characteristics
  • Understand molding properties and process-related concerns
  • Compare resin costs Review material properties: tensile strength, impact resistance, ductility
  • Select the optimum material to ensure your product withstands its end-use environment or application
  • Identify part enhancements
  • Ensure product quality at the most cost-effective price
