What is General Plastic?
General-purpose plastics generally refer to plastics with large output, wide use, good formability, and low prices.
There are five types of general plastics, namely polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polystyrene (PS) and acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene copolymer (ABS). These five types of plastics account for the vast majority of plastic raw materials, and the rest can basically be classified into special plastic varieties, such as: PPS, PPO, PA, PC, POM, etc., they are used in daily life products very little, mainly It is used in high-end fields such as the engineering industry and national defense technology, such as automobiles, aerospace, construction, and communications.
According to its plasticity classification, plastics can be divided into thermoplastics and thermosetting plastics. Under normal circumstances, thermoplastic products can be recycled, while thermosetting plastics cannot. According to the optical properties of plastics, they can be divided into transparent, translucent and opaque raw materials, such as PS, PMMA, AS, PC, etc. which are transparent plastics , And most other plastics are opaque plastics.
