In this blog, we will explore some of the most commonly used plastics in manufacturing and their properties.
Polyethylene (PE) is the most widely used plastic globally, accounting for over 34% of total plastic production. It is a thermoplastic polymer that is easy to mold, making it ideal for products such as plastic bags, food containers, and bottles. PE’s versatility extends to industries such as toys, pipes, and even medical devices.
Polypropylene (PP) is similar to PE but has a higher melting point. It is a thermoplastic polymer that is commonly used in manufacturing because of its strength, durability, and resistance to heat and chemicals. PP is widely used in packaging, automotive parts, and even furniture.
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is a synthetic plastic polymer that is versatile, durable, and flexible, making it ideal for various applications. PVC’s excellent properties make it popular in the construction industry for products such as pipes, flooring, and upholstery. PVC is also used in medical devices, fashion, and automotive parts.
Polystyrene (PS) is a versatile plastic that can be molded into different shapes and sizes. It is commonly used in the production of disposable cups, food containers, and packaging. Polystyrene is also used in insulation, toys, and even computer housings.
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is a thermoplastic polymer that is known for its strength, toughness, and heat resistance. It is commonly used in the automotive industry for parts such as dashboards, bumpers, and trims. ABS is also popular in the production of toys, musical instruments, and appliances.
