Plastic is a polymeric material that has the capability of being moulded or shaped, usually by the application of heat and pressure. Plastics are light in weight and are chemically stable along with good insulation and low thermal conductivity. They have good impact resistance and they do not rust. Thermoplastics do not undergo any changes in their chemical structures and chemical compositions when subjected to heat and can be changed into a soft state and remoulded multiple times.


Nylon plastic (PA) is a synthetic thermoplastic polymer commonly used in injection molding applications. It is a versatile, durable, and flexible material having high melting point, low friction, high tensile strength and has resistance to chemicals and abrasions.

Based on molecular structure, nylon is available in variety of different grades with varying levels of mechanical properties. Nylon is also combined with other materials to improve upon various qualities. For example, filling nylon with glass increases its tensile strength and makes it less flexible but increases brittleness.

Nylon is used extensively in automobile, electrical, machine manufacturing construction industries.


Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is an opaque thermoplastic and amorphous polymer. ABS has good impact resistance along with strong resistance to corrosive chemicals. ABS is also relatively easy to machine. ABS has low melting point and is not used in high heat applications.

ABS is used in electronics, construction, toys industries.


HIPS is an amorphous thermoplastic material which is easy to thermoform and fabricate. HIPS has good dimensional stability, high impact strength and stiffness. Is is a versatile, impact-resistant, cost-effective material, which is easy to vacuum form, bend, extrude and mould into shape. It can be re-moulded over and over, making it environmentally friendly, as it can be recycled. It has low melting point.
