Polyester is a thermoplastic polymer resin and offers itself to a number of applications particularly synthetic fibres, food containers, liquid containers, beverage, thermoforming applications and engineering resins often in combination with glass fibre.

Polyester is also one of the most used raw materials for the production of man-made fibres.

Again polystyrene is a thermoplastic substance which normally exists in solid state at room temperature. When heated it melts but becomes solid again once cooled off. Hard with limited flexibility polystyrene is a colourless material which can be moulded into fine detail.

Polypropylene is also a thermoplastic polymer which is used for a wide range of applications such as reusable containers, loudspeakers, packaging, ropes, automotive components and polymer banknotes.

Polyethylene HDPE
This material has little branching which gives it stronger intermolecular forces and tensile strength than lower density polyethylene.

Itís also more opaque, harder, and can withstand higher temperatures; however it cannot withstand normally required autoclaving conditions.
