What can you do with Thermoplastics?
Thermoplastics can be used for many things as it can be heated and reshaped. In high school we used to make cake slides and toy boats.
The melting point of thermoplastics depends on the particular type of thermoplastics. The melting point varies from 160 Degrees Celsius to 350 Degrees Celsius for engineering thermoplastics. When it comes to high temperature thermoplastics, the melting point varies from 3593 to 4010 Degrees Celsius.
Polymers is a example of thermoplastics. Thermoplastics include Acrylic, Polyester and Nylon. Thermoplastic is a polymer material that can be molded and shaped once a certain temperature has been achieved. Types of objects made from thermoplastics are: Tubes; plastic chairs; light switch plates; ice cube trays; baseball helmets, spray bottles; dvd cases; legos.....etc..
