Materials Matter!


In today’s world, plastic has become one of the most durable and cost-effective materials you can use. In fact, in the 21st Century, plastics are stronger, more flexible, and are used in parts and materials that were not possible a few years ago.

We use the highest grade of PAI, also known as polyamideimide, has a tensile strength of 21,000 pounds per square inch, making it the strongest plastic available.


This high-performance plastic offers the highest strength of any unreinforced thermoplastic, as well as strong wear and radiation resistance, intrinsically low flammability, and high thermal stability.


We combine this with brass and stainless steel to make the highest quality product available on the market. 

The design and structure of a PVC check valve and a brass check valve are basically the same. Both serve the same purpose. However, most plastic valves are made with an injection mold process while metal valves are machined.

If you want the lightest parts possible, we have you covered! Plastic is usually the most cost-effective selection, and this is an important consideration if you need many parts. Because PVC material is lighter than metal, you’ll pay less for shipping on average. If your supplier is a custom manufacturer, you’ll enjoy the benefits of built to order parts, and they’ll help you choose the best plastic or metal valves for your needs.
