Plastics Enclosures

B&R Enclosures supply a range of enclosures that use different plastics and are suitable for a variety of different applications.

For more information on which type of material to choose, please see our pages on chemical resistance (pdf), plastics in the sun and plastic flammability.

Materials used in B&R Enclosure’s range include: –

  • Noryl – Noryl is a blend of polyphenylene oxide (PPO) and polystyrene (PS) that was developed by General Electric Plastics in 1966. It has good electrical resistance and is widely used for electrical enclosures
  • Polyester – Polyester is a category of polymers which contain the ester functional group in their main chain. Although there are many polyesters, the term “polyester” as a specific material most commonly refers to polyethylene terephthalate (PET).
  • GRP/Polyamide – A polyamide is a polymer containing monomers of amides joined by peptide bonds. They can occur both naturally, examples being proteins, such as wool and silk, and can be made artificially through step-growth polymerization, examples being nylons, aramids, and sodium poly (aspartate).
  • Glass filled polyester – As detailed for polyester above, but with additional glass fibres for strength and rigidity at larger sizes.

Our enclosure materials are as follows:
