Plastic and rubber materials are extensively used in a variety of industries including automotive, medical, additive manufacturing, packaging, electronics, textiles, aerospace, and construction. It is estimated that the plastic production could approach to almost 2,000 million tons in the next 30 years. The most common polymer type is polyethylene (PE) followed up polypropylene (PP), and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Different plastics have different properties such as thermal-resistance, durability, and structure. These properties determine which plastic material is best suited for use in a specific application. Some examples include utilizing plastic parts in the body panels to under-hood manifolds in cars, tamper-resistant packaging for food and medical products, foamed plastic insulation, vinyl windows, wire insulation, and coatings.
