Product Categories

Please review our range of products listed below. We are continuously sourcing new materials, so please contact us if you have a specific requirement.

Polyamides are a family of engineering polymers. They are characterised by their high strength, abrasion resistance with a range of flexibilities which leads them to applications in automotive, food packaging, cabling, electronics and medical devices. NCC supply a wide range of polyamides including PA6 and PA66 in both filled and unfilled, PA 11, PA6-10 and 12.

PVC compounds have a range of applications across pipes & drainage, fascia, cables and sheet extrusion. A range of PVC compounds are available from NCC including rigid, flexible, impact modified, flame retardant and medically approved. A range of PVC stabilisers, processing aids and impact modifiers are also available for customers who compound PVC in-house.

Thermoplastic elastomers bridge the gap in properties between rubber and plastic with excellent flexibility and customisability. TPEs are used in household goods, tubing, medical devices, food contact applications and children’s toys. NCC supply a range of TPE’s certified to EU 10/2011, EN71/3, USP Class VI and ISO 10993

Pebax is Arkema’s unique polyether-block-amide technology offering superior mechanical, chemical and processing performance in comparison to other TPEs. Pebax is available in a range of shore hardness’s from 25-75D, and available in natural, clear and renewable grades. Pebax’s excellent properties and wide processing range makes this material an excellent choice for a range of applications including power transmission, food processing and packaging, automotive, sport and medical device.

Polyolefins encompass a range of thermoplastics including polypropylene, polyethylene and polyolefin elastomers. The applications are near limitless and include cabling, pipes, injection moulded parts, packaging, drums, food packaging and healthcare.

NCC supply a wide range of polymer additives including radio opacifiers, flame retardants, colour masterbatches, additives masterbatches, antimicrobials, plasticisers and processing aids.

High performance polymers are materials that meet higher standards than engineering or commodity thermoplastics. NCC supply specific application technical polymers for uses in industries such as healthcare, electronics, and other applications with stringent mechanical, temperature or chemical resistant requirements. We have a variety of materials including PVDF, speciality polyamides, and polysulfones.

Engineering polymers are a family of thermoplastics with better performance that the commodity grades. Different engineering polymers have different strengths making them ideal for a variety of applications where there is a requirement for greater impact strength, better surface finish, abrasion resistance  or chemical resistance. NCC offer a range of engineering plastics including ABS, PC, POM and PBT.

We focus on developing and growing our partnership with our customers. Our willingness to understand the needs of this Polymer customer and to adapt our offering has meant we’ve become their preferred supply partner
