Plastic Engineering

Plastic Engineering

The plastic has found wide application in industry. Due to their relatively low cost, ease of manufacture, versatility, and imperviousness to water, plastics are used in an enormous and expanding range of products, from paper clips to spaceships. They have already displaced many traditional materials, such as wood, stone, horn and bone, leather, paper, metal, glass, and ceramic, in most of their former uses. In developed countries, about a third of plastic is used in packaging and another third in buildings such as piping used in plumbing or vinyl siding. Other uses include automobiles (up to 20% plastic), furniture, and toys. In the developing world, the ratios may be different - for example, reportedly 42% of India's consumption is used in packaging.

Different types of plastic variants are available in market. Special types of plastic are developed for using with / in different application / conditions. The plastic to be used in Pharma Machinery requires special properties like “Food Grade” material.
