Semi-Crystalline Commodity Plastics

Commodity plastic materials with good chemical resistance but low moisture absorption, strength and cost

General Characteristics of Semi-Crystalline Commodity Plastics

  • Low temperature
  • Low strength
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Low moisture absorption
  • Low cost

Semi-crystalline 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.
