A thermoplastic, or thermosoftening plastic, is a plastic material, polymer that becomes pliable or moldable above a specific temperature and solidifies upon cooling. Most thermoplastics have a high molecular weight.
There are multiple thermoplastic resins that offer various performance benefits, but most materials commonly offer high strength, shrink-resistance and easy bendability. Thermoplastics are frequently used in manufacturing plastic labware. The most frequently used thermoplastics are polypropylene and polyethylene.
Polypropylene (PP) is a linear hydrocarbon polymer, expressed as CnH2n. PP is a polyolefin or saturated polymer. Polypropylene is one of those most versatile polymers available with applications, both as a plastic and as a fibre.
PE-HD HIGH-DENSITY POLYETHYLENE
*For the storage of light-sensitive materials, also available in brown-dyed version.
PE-LD LOW-DENSITY POLYETHYLENE
Polycarbonate is virtually unbreakable. Through its high impact resistance, it provides greater safety and comfort for applications where reliability and high performance are essential.
