PFplastic has been used for a long time in handles and grips and other parts that are generally black. This is because heat-resistant temperature is high, durability excellent, and moreover,PFis not penetrated by acid or alkali. In addition, it is well known that fluoroplastics employed in space rockets are also employed as fry pan coatings.
As these small kitchen goods are hygienic, beautifully colored, hard to break, and low cost,PP,PMMAandPEare used. Due to the very existence of the material known as plastics, there appear to be many products that have appeared in this area.?
Safety is of primary concern for the lunch boxes, spoons, chopsticks and other utensils that children take to school and on picnics. They are products that are realized through plastics that are easy to use, rich in design and color freedom, and above all safe. Here,PP,PC,PSandPEplay active roles.
Heat-resistant containers used in microwave ovens employPP, PET andASdue to their heat resistance and transparency. In addition, many combinations of PET,PP,PAandPEare employed in multi-layer films for wrapping food. It appears as ifPCis often used as a lid to directly cover food placed in a microwave oven.
Refrigerators are getting smaller to cater to the needs of single people, but conversely they are also getting bigger. Models that can access the Internet have also been developed. The inner lining of the door isPSandPP. The reverse side of the door uses the same materials. Frozen food packaging materials usePEandPP. Almost all containers for puddings, margarine, ice-cream, and yoghurt-type drinks are injection-molded from impact resistantPS,PSandPP.
Accompanying the increased population of aged persons, IH (Induction Heating) cooking tops have rapidly penetrated the market. This is because they are less likely to cause fires on account of their not using flames to cook ? they utilize a magnetic flux. The switch case and side cover of an installed cooking top usesPBTdue to its heat resistance, moldability, and beautiful external appearance. Tabletop portable units have also recently hit the market and here too,PBTplays an active role in the external parts.
Polyethylene terephthalate is abbreviated PET, which is itself a term commonly associated with the well know bottle for packaging various products from soft drinks, drinking water, and fruit drinks, through to liquid condiments such as soy sauce, sauces, and salad oil. Everybody is also aware that use has spread to sauces for noodles and barbequed meats.
Many types of plastic film exist, including those based onPE,PP,PS,PVCand PVCD. Just what plastic is used depends on the requirements for gas barrier properties and flavor retention, etc. Laminated films also exist in which the desired characteristics are obtained by combining different types of material. The milk carton, wherePEis coated onto paper, is a good example.
The dials and handles of toasters and rice cookers are molded from highly heat-resistantPF, whileABSandPPare employed in external parts of coffee makers and electric thermo flasks. Many electric thermo flasks employ PP in the hot water pump pipe.
