(1) Easy to process, easy to manufacture (easy to mold)
Even if the geometry of the product is quite complex, it can be easily produced as long as it can be released from the mold. Therefore, its efficiency is far better than metal processing, especially injection molding products, through a process, can produce very complex finished products.
(2) can be randomly colored as needed, or made into transparent products
The use of plastics can produce five-color, transparent and beautiful products, which can be arbitrarily colored, which can enhance the value of its products and give people a bright feeling.
(3) It can be made into lightweight and high-strength products.
Compared with metal and ceramic products, it has light weight, good mechanical properties and high specific strength (ratio of strength to density), so it can be made into lightweight and high-strength products. In particular, after filling the glass fiber, the strength can be increased.
In addition, due to the light weight of plastics, energy can be saved, so its products are becoming increasingly lightweight.
(4) No rust, no corrosion
Plastics are generally resistant to corrosion by various chemicals and are not as susceptible to rust or corrosion as metals. Do not worry about the erosion of acids, alkalis, salts, oils, chemicals, moisture and mold when using.
(5) It is not easy to transfer heat and has good thermal insulation performance.
Since the plastic is larger than the heat, the thermal conductivity is small, and it is not easy to transfer heat, so the heat preservation and heat insulation effect is good.
(6) It can make conductive parts and make insulating products.
Plastic itself is a good insulating material. It can be said that no electrical product does not use plastic. However, if the plastic is filled with metal powder or chips for molding, it can also be made into a conductive product.
(7) Excellent shock absorption and sound absorbing performance, good light transmission
Plastics have excellent shock absorption and sound absorbing properties; transparent plastics (such as PMMA, PS, PC, etc.) can be used to make transparent plastic products (such as lenses, signs, hoods, etc.).
(8) Low manufacturing cost
Although the plastic raw material itself is not so cheap, since the plastic is easy to process and the equipment cost is relatively low, the product cost can be reduced.
