The term ‘thermoplastics’ refers to a specific type of plastic which, when heated, becomes flexible and easy to mould into various shapes with the help of different types of moulding tools designed for this purpose.
Thermoplastics are often used in injection moulding.
Thermoplastics are some of the most environmentally-friendly types of plastics. This is due to the fact that they can be melted down and reused to create new products.
There is a wide variety of thermoplastics to choose from, each with its own unique properties and applications. Exactly which thermoplastic is best suited for which product is a decision that can only be made with each unique project in mind. Luckily, it is a decision that we, at Tojos Plast, are fully equipped to help you with.
Thermoplastics Are Recyclable
Thermoplastics can be re-melted and re-shaped several times and, because of this, they are easy to recycle. Additives can also be included in order to alter the properties of the recycled material, thereby allowing for the creation of additional applications to suit a customer’s requirements.
