What are the Common Plastic Materials?



Connexions has 17 year experience in Cable & Plastic Molding.

Let’s learn about some raw materials for Plastic Products.

1.ABS Plastic

It is a plastic polymerized by acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene. It has a striking color, heat-resistant, strong, and the outer surface can be plated with chrome, nickel and other metal films. It can be used to make keys, buttons, knife holders, TV housings, umbrella handles, etc.

2.PP Plastic

It is non-toxic and tasteless, and can be immersed in boiling water at 100°C without deformation or damage. Common acid and alkali organic solvents have almost no effect on it. Mostly used for food utensils.

3.PE Plastic

Stable chemical performance, usually made of food bags and various containers, resistant to acid, alkali and salt aqueous solution, but it is not suitable to wipe or soak with strong alkaline detergent.

4.PS Plastic

It is easy to color and has good transparency. It is mostly used to make lampshades, toothbrush handles, toys, and electrical parts. It is resistant to acid and alkali corrosion, but is easily soluble in organic solvents such as chloroform, dichloroethylene and banana water.

5. PVC Plastic

Bright color, corrosion resistance, strong and durable. Due to the addition of some toxic auxiliary materials such as plasticizers and anti-aging agents in the manufacturing process, its products generally do not store food and medicine.05

6. PA Plastic

It is tough, firm, and wear-resistant, and is often used to make combs, toothbrushes, clothes hooks, fan bones, mesh bags, and fruit outer packaging bags. Non-toxic, but not long-term contact with acid and alkali.
