Plastics Testing Instruments
Plastic testing instruments are widely used in industries all across the globe for testing various types of plastics that are used and manufactured in different industries. Plastics are nowadays an inevitable part of our lives. They can be found anywhere and everywhere for different purposes. From a children toy to a space shuttle module, plastic products and components are used everywhere for various applications. Some of these applications are very crucial and need only the most accurate and bets quality parts and components to operate smoothly and successfully. The manufacturers need to be aware of the fact that if the quality of the plastics is not up to the level they can be easily led to failure. There are some extremely harsh working conditions where the plastic components are meant to be functioning. In this case, the bad quality of the plastic products can be very lethal and dangerous. Additionally, the integrity and quality of the plastic products is also important for smooth running of production line in the industries. This is the reason the manufacturing industries of plastic components need to use the best possible ways to check the quality of the products they are delivering to the customers. The plastic testing instruments help in testing the quality of the plastic products with great accuracy and hence ensure the best quality of products. There are many different types of plastics that are in used in both industrial as well as domestic fronts.
HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) Testing Instruments
HDPE is abbreviation for High density Poly Ethylene. These are the plastic materials that are used for manufacturing containers and packaging materials where there is a need for a very high strength to protect the products inside. They can be used for making milk bottles, bleach bottles, chemical bottles, etc. The HDPE are used for packaging materials because they are very thick in consistency and have better strength and can be used for making flexible products that can be flexed back if exerted a force on it. It is recyclable and can be used again and again for manufacturing of new products.
LDPE (Low Density Poly Ethylene)
The low density poly ethylene or LDPE plastics are low density plastic materials that are very flexible and hence are used for making carry bags, polybags, packaging bags and so forth. They can also be used for making plastic films that can be used for many other purposes further. The main attribute of the LDPE plastics is that they are very lightweight, thing and flexible yet have a substantial amount of strength that can bear a significant amount of weight and hence are used for making carry bags. These materials cannot be recycled but the products made from LDPE can be reused if they are not contaminated.
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
Polyvinyl Chloride or PVC is the type of plastic that is supposed to have a higher strength than the HDPE and LDPE as this type of plastic has cross linking molecules although they are not as flexible as the other plastics like HDPE or LDPE. The high strength and low flexibility of the PVC materials make them ideal for use in applications such as Pipes, food trays, wire insulations, clear bottle and so forth. The PVC material is used for application where there is need of less flexibility and more strength. Additionally, PVC can be formulated to have extra ability such a weather resistance, fire resistance and so forth. This type of plastic is hard to recycle.
Poly Ethylene Terephthalate (PETE) Testing Instruments
Polyethylene Terephthalate or commonly known as PET is mainly used in industries for making PET bottles and containers. They are the most ideal material to make packaging containers for fragile substances such as chemicals, compounds and food products as they are not reactive and are unable to release any extra residues in the products and compromise their quality. Additionally, the PET is very strong and can withstand different sorts of forces without getting damaged. This is also an important attribute to look for in a packaging material. The PET can be used for making clear bottles and containers, food vessels, and so forth. This material can be easily recycled.
Polypropylene or PP is the material that can be used for making many different plastic objects such as children toys, butter tubs, bottle caps, jar caps and so forth. The material is hard and strong but does not have any flexibility hence it is best for purposes where high strength is needed but cannot be used in an application that demands flexibility. The material can shatter easily if a force more than its capacity is exerted on it. This type of material cannot be recycles.
Polystyrene is a soft version of plastic that is flexible to some extent and has some tensile strength as well. This can be used for making disposable cups, food containers, packaging materials, and confetti. As the material is very soft, it can be used for art and craft purposes as well. IT is also used in engineering for making models of products or parts. Due to its light weight, it is used as a cushion for delicate products during their transportation to absorb any forces or blow exerted. These materials cannot be recycled conventionally but they can be used again.
There many other forms of plastics that can be found to be used in different applications such as nylon resin, Bakelite and so forth. If the manufacturers want to ensure that the best quality products are delivered to the customers, they need to ensure that they test quality of the plastic materials with the help of best precision plastic testing instruments.
