Versatile resin products encourages innovations that help make life better, healthier and safer every day. We use plastic to make bicycle helmets, child seats and airbags in cars. They are in mobile phones, televisions, computers and other electronic devices that make modern life possible.
It is in roofs, walls, floors and insulation that makes homes and buildings energy efficient better than before. And the plastic in the packaging helps to keep food safe and fresh. Some plastics are made naturally, such as rubber from trees. There are “organic” plastics that contain carbon, and inorganic plastics that do not.
Some plastics are hard and some fragile, others soft and flexible. Plastics made it possible to manufacturing many variant products, such as paints, protective coatings and, glues and adhesives, sealants and insulation materials.
Some plastics have additives that make them resistant to bacteria or fire; or give them a rainbow of colors, make them flexible; or fill them with air bubbles to make them better insulators or even add fiber to create high-tech composite materials. There are tens of thousands or more different types of plastics in pharmaceuticals industry.
Plastic products have many benefits for example:
- Plastic provide a sustainable, long-lasting and durable design and construction of homes, buildings and infrastructure such as bridges.
- In car design, plastic has contributed in many innovations for the terms of safety, performance and fuel efficiency
- Plastic package helps to protect and preserve products while they reduce the weight in transport too, which saves fuel and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
- From computers and mobile phones to televisions and microwave ovens, these durable, lightweight and economical plastic has helped revolutionize the electronics which we rely on our daily activities.
- Plastic helps to make sports safety outfits, such as plastic helmets, mouth guards, goggles and cushions, lighter and more durable to keep sports fans of all ages safe. Molded, shock-absorbing plastic foam helps keep feet stable and supportive, while sturdy plastic shells that cover helmets and cushions help protect the head, joints and bones.
Most used plastic items
Plastic items are being used regularly. Most of these products are available in stores near where we live.
With the variant of options that are available, plastics have replacing metals and wood products. Let us look at the three most used plastics and their applications.
1) Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET)
PET is one of those plastics that you might come in contact with on a daily basis. It is made with a combination of ethylene glycol and Terephthalic acid, which are combined to form a polymer chain. Depending on manufacturing method, PET can be rigid or flexible due to its molecular construction.
It is impact proof, chemical resistant and weather hazard’s resistant. PET is used in packaging trays, soft drink, water, cooking oil bottles, frozen ready-meal trays, first-aid blankets, polar fleece and etc. PET is known for packaging soft drinks, frozen meals, shampoo, liquid hand wash as well. Special grades of PET are used for carry-home food containers that can be warmed in the microwave.
2) High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE)
HDPE is a type of plastic that can withstand high temperatures and strong chemicals. An added benefit of HDPE is that it can be recycled in multiple different ways and converted into many different materials. It can be formed by a wide variety of thermoplastic processing. Their durability, flexibility and resistance to corrosion properties are unbeatable compared to other materials.
HDPE is a good choice for blow-molding applications such as food and beverage containers. It is also used in the manufacturing of food and beverage storage, shopping bags, bottle caps, helmets, and cars fuel tanks. In addition, HDPE is UV resistant and extremely durable. This makes it ideal for piping and outdoor applications as well.
3) Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
PVC is known for its versatility and is an extremely practical polymer. It can be cut, shaped, and welded easily. Its light-weight nature reduces manual handling difficulties. Furthermore, PVC pipes are low carbon plastics. Therefore, they require less energy and fewer resources to manufacture.
PVC is one of the most preferred choices of plastic in building and construction. Reason being, it is abrasion resistant, light-weight and offers excellent mechanical strength. It is also used in the manufacture of water pipes, window frames, cables, and flooring.
Single- use plastic or disposable plastic products, are one of the well-known plastic’s derivatives. These are some of the examples for disposable plastic products:
Tableware such as lunch boxes, plates, plates, knives, forks, spoons, chopsticks, bowls, cups, pots, Jars and straws, etc.
Disposable tableware with external support is also included, but food packaging used for unprepared food or other similar uses such as fresh food trays, yogurt cups and treadmills, etc.
