Classification of Plastics

Plastics can be classified into:

1. Thermoplastics and Thermo sets

2. Amorphous Thermoplastics and Crystalline Thermoplastics

3. Commodity Plastics and Engineering Plastics

Thermoplastics Vs Thermo sets

Thermoplastics Elastomer

• TPE – thermoplastic elastomer

• Resemble rubber at room temperature

• Can be melt-processed like other thermoplastics

• Become elastic like rubber when cooled
