Volume plastics are widely used, cost-efficient materials.
Engineering plastics are produced by linking additional polymer chains to basic plastics’ polymer frame. Offering higher dimensional accuracy than basic plastics during machining, technical plastics have several properties that make them suitable for challenging applications.
High performance plastics include fluoroplastics and technical plastics that have more advanced properties than standard technical plastics.
Optical plastics include clear and coloured amorphous thermoplastics. Optical plastics can be coated to make them more resistant to chemicals or abrasion.
Composite materials or thermosets differ from thermoplastics with regard to their manufacturing process and machining properties.
