There are many materials needed to make the broom, such as stainless steel rods, plastic shells, and elastic silk bristles. Stainless steel and plastic are divided into several categories. Today we will first talk about the main characteristics of plastics and its advantages and disadvantages.We offer different products, such as Hand held Broom, Car Brush, Dish Brush, Spray Mop, Flat Mop…
The main characteristics of plastic:
Most plastics are light, chemically stable, will not rust; good impact resistance; good transparency and wear resistance; good insulation, low thermal conductivity; general formability, colorability Good, low processing cost; most plastics have poor heat resistance, large thermal expansion rate, easy to burn; poor dimensional stability and easy deformation; most plastics have poor low-temperature resistance, become brittle at low temperatures, and easily age; some plastics are easily soluble in solvents.
Plastics can be distinguished between thermoset and thermoplastic. The former cannot be reshaped and the latter can be reproduced. The physical elongation of thermoplasticity is relatively large, generally ranging from 50% to 500%. The force does not change completely linearly at different elongations.
The different properties of plastics determine their use in the industry. With the advancement of technology, a plastic modification has not stopped research. It is hoped that in the near future, plastics can be modified to have a wider range of applications, and even replace steel and other materials and no longer pollute the environment.
Advantages of plastic:
Most plastics have strong corrosion resistance, do not react with acid and alkali; plastic manufacturing cost is low; durable, waterproof, lightweight; easy to be molded into different shapes; good insulator; plastic can be used for preparation Fuel oil and fuel gas, which can reduce crude oil consumption.
Disadvantages of plastics:
When recycling waste plastics, classification is very difficult and economically uneconomical; plastics are easy to burn and produce toxic gases when burned. For example, when polystyrene is burned, toluene is produced. A small amount of this substance may cause blindness, inhalation, and vomiting, etc. PVC burning may also generate hydrogen chloride toxic gas. In addition to burning, it is a high-temperature environment, which may cause the plastic to decompose toxic components, such as benzene. Plastics are made from petroleum refined products, and petroleum resources are limited; plastics are buried under the ground for hundreds of years, thousands of years or even tens of thousands of years without decay; plastics have poor heat resistance and are easy to use. Aging; due to the inability of plastics to degrade naturally, it has become the number one enemy of mankind and has also led to the tragedy of many animal deaths. For example, monkeys, baboons, dolphins and other animals in the zoo will accidentally swallow the No. 1 plastic bottle that the tourists left and finally, die because of indigestion. Looking at the beautiful and pure sea, they are close, and they are full. A variety of plastic garbage that cannot be contained in the ocean and a variety of plastics that cannot be digested have been found in the intestines of many dead seabird samples.
