General Characteristics of Amorphous Commodity Plastics
- Low temperature
- Low strength
- Good bondability
- Good machinability
- Good formabiliy
- Low cost
Amorphous commodity plastics can be considered for applications with an approximate maximum temperature of 180°F. Selecting a plastic material for use in a high temperature environment requires careful review of material properties data.
