Initation is pleased to provide you with the latest industrial plastics on the market, which meet all the technical and feature requirements in any specific industry.
Initation will bring you some interesting information to help you better understand industrial plastics!
What are industrial plastics?
Industrial plastics are polymeric compounds, manufactured to strict standards, so they can withstand the effects of heat and pressure without being damaged or deformed.
Standard industrial plastic lines meet all production needs in modern industries. It can be said that these are plastics that are closely linked and indispensable in human life.
The demand for industrial plastics is increasing day by day
Industrial plastic with many outstanding properties, is considered to be able to replace many other materials in the industry. When the population boomed, the demand for the electricity, automobile and electronics industries also increased.
Before problems related to cost of use, chemicals and corrosion. Many businesses have been looking for better alternatives to metal materials. And, industrial plastics are the most effective solutions!
Asia and the Pacific are the world’s largest users of industrial plastics, with applications mainly in the electrical and electronic markets. While European countries, Japan and North America mainly use industrial plastics in automobile manufacturing.
Advantages of industrial plastics
Industrial plastics are researched and developed according to modern production methods. Products can meet all the requirements of use according to strict standards of each field.
Therefore, when applying industrial plastics in production / manufacturing, you will see that they bring many outstanding uses as follows:
- Low moisture absorption.
- High tensile strength.
- Extremely good electrical conductivity.
- The coefficient of thermal expansion is extremely low.
- Raised heat deformation temperature.
- Very good fire resistance.
- Good durability and impact resistance.
- Excellent dimensional stability.
- Ability to improve scratch resistance - effective scratch resistance.
Applications of industrial plastics in different fields
With many benefits to life, Initation's industrial plastic products have wide applications in the fields of:
- Combined with stainless steel or glass to make equipment that requires durability and needs to be disinfected at high temperatures such as food processing machinery, medical equipment, etc.
- Suitable for irons, hair dryers, astronaut helmets and aircraft covers.
- Application in motorcycles: Machine components that require high rigidity, low shrinkage and impact resistance, stable working temperature.
- Electronic products: Camera components, computer components, household electrical components, OA office machine gears…
- Industrial products: Hand tools, reels, gears, bearings, plumbing connectors, drive belts….
- Civil products: Bathroom accessories, window rails, baby car details, watches, zippers…
- Car / motorcycle components: Wiring board, carburetor components, wiper components, gear combination, fuel tank cover, exhaust regulator, lock mold…
- Sports equipment: Bicycles, beach car parts, fitness equipment…
Popular types of industrial plastics on the market
PET (Polyethylene terephthalate)
This type of plastic is extremely popular today, because of its safety properties, it is widely used in the production of glass, plastic bottles, soft drinks bottles, purified water bottles or juice bottles.
However, PET plastic still has the ability to accumulate bacteria and cause unpleasant odors, so it should only be used for a certain period of time and must be discarded.
HDPE (High-density polyethylene)
HDPE plastic has high mechanical strength, good temperature resistance for a long time and is almost completely chemically inert, so it is used a lot to make washing liquid / cleaning water / bleach bottles, medicine boxes , baby milk bottles, shampoo / shower gel bottles... In addition, HDPE is also used to make water supply and drainage pipes.
It can be said that this is one of the most stable and safe industrial plastic lines for consumers' health.
PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride)
PVC is the third most used industrial plastic in the world. With flexibility properties can appear in hard or plastic form, depending on the additive added.
PVC industrial plastic is most used in the production of bottles, blisters, cards (chip cards, bank cards), bed sheets or children's toy products, glass paper, glass cover (food wrap).
However, there are many studies showing that PVC is a type of plastic that should not be used to store food, because it contains phthalate and bisphenol A additives that are not good for consumers' health.
LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene)
LDPE industrial plastic is used to produce plastic wraps for food, ice storage, carpets, clothing, shopping bags, bread bags and most bottles.
In addition, LDPE plastic can be recycled to produce envelopes, trash cans, billboards...
However, in terms of physical properties, LDPE plastic is less durable, only resistant to 95 degrees C (for a short time) and 80 degrees C (for a long time).
This plastic is very popular because of its excellent heat resistance. PP plastic is used to produce straws, bottles of chili sauce / ketchup / syrup, medicine bottles, yogurt boxes…
PS plastic is used to produce thin single-use plastic cups or foam bags. This plastic has the ability to release toxic substances (especially when heated).
Many people will confuse PP and PS industrial plastic materials when choosing to buy: Plastic cups, plastic knives / spoons / spoons... To distinguish people need to remember: PP has transparent properties - PS is more opaque.
Note: Among the above plastics, the safest industrial plastic products are in order: HDPE, PP, LDPE, PET. With the lines of PVC, PS... is not recommended for the production of hot food containers.
