Medical device manufacturers, architects, aerospace engineers have more in common than it may seem at first glance. While their designs differ greatly, they share a need for high-performance plastics. Often they have very specific requirements when they call us – but other times their requirements are broader and less specific.

We field a lot of questions each day about the chemical-resistance, load bearing or heat tolerant properties of certain materials, from professionals in vastly different fields. Being a wholesale supplier of performance plastics as well as a custom fabricator, we are familiar with not only sourcing what our customers need, but also in helping them determine what materials will work best in their designs.

Performance Plastics for Custom Applications

Colorado Plastic Products has been the Denver Metro area’s full-service wholesale distributor of machinable plastic sheet, rod, and tube since 1969, and a custom fabricator of the same for industries ranging from agriculture suppliers to telescope makers.

We often work with manufacturers from the design through prototype process, up to full-scale production. Our project managers have the experience to offer suggestions and solutions throughout the process, and our fabricators are experts at reading and following our customers’ design specifications.
