A Closer Look at Commodity Plastics
Commodity plastics, also known as commodity polymers or general-purpose plastics, are a type of thermoplastic produced in extremely high volume and commonly used due to their excellent moldability, versatility, and affordability. Commodity plastics are commonly found in numerous everyday products that we use in our daily lives. They are produced for applications that do not really require exceptional properties. Compared with engineering plastics, they have relatively weaker mechanical properties. However, these plastics are still highly functional and serve a wide range of purposes in various industries.
