Additional Industrial Plastics


As a locally-owned and operated company the team at AJ Plastics Engineering aim to support local manufacturers whenever possible. All of our industrial-strength plastics have been sourced from local suppliers and are able to function in different environments with excellence. Resistant to moisture, fracturing, and wear, our numerous varieties of plastic materials are well-suited for Australian companies.

  • Sourced from a network of local suppliers
  • Stock levels on hand
  • Custom orders available
  • If your required plastic is not listed, please contact us. We can potentially source from our network of suppliers or recommend an alternative product
