high performance plastics differ from standard plastics and engineering plastics primarily by their temperature stability, but also by their chemical resistance and mechanical properties, production quantity, and price.. there are many synonyms for the term high performance plastics, such as: high temperature plastics, high performance polymers, high performance thermoplastics or high tech
plastic bottle resin materials plastic bottles come in a variety of materials (resins). plastic bottles produced from hdpe material are the most common and least expensive. plastic bottles produced from pet material are crystal clear. plastic jars produced from pp material are resilient and economical. plastic jars made from ps are clear.
flametec ® products – heat resistant plastic. vycom's flametec® proprietary family of fire resistant plastic offers the semiconductor and cleanroom industry a full portfolio of product offerings that is specially formulated to exceed the fire compliances for polymers.
by contrast, thermoset plastics can only be heated once (typically during the injection molding process). the first heating causes thermoset materials to set (similar to a 2 part epoxy) resulting in a chemical change that cannot be reversed. if you tried to heat a thermoset plastic to a high temperature a second time it would simply burn.
1 material properties of plastics 1.1 formation and structure the basic structure of plastics (or polymers) is given by macromolecule chains, formulated from monomer units by chemical reactions. typical reactions for chain assembling are polyaddition (continuous or step wise) and condensation polymer ization (polycondensation)  (figure 1.1)..
· the higher the density of the polyethylene material used the stronger, more rigid, and more heat resistant the plastic is. the primary uses of polyethylene are plastic bags, plastic films, containers including bottles, and geomembranes. polycarbonate. polycarbonate (pc) plastics are a naturally transparent amorphous thermoplastic.
