General plastics increasingly replace traditional materials such as woods and metals. They are chosen for improved performance and cost reduction. General plastics such as Acrylic, ABS plastics, laminated sheet, polyethylene, polypropylene, polycarbonate, and PVC can be used to:
|- Reduce Weight||- Reduce Corrosion||- Increase Part Durability|
Typical applications for general plastics range from cutting board to materials used in the chemicals industry.
Machinable general plastic stock shapes (sheet, rod, and tubular bar) are available in many grades. General plastics, although not quite as heat resistant as advanced engineering plastics, offer alternatives to many other materials in various applications.
