In our previous blog, Selecting the Appropriate Resin Grade for Your Application, thermoplastics are categorized into three different resin grades; commodity, engineering, and specialty/high-performance. These categories of resins have special properties that they are known for. However, during the plastic injection molding process, some of the thermoplastics properties can diminish. This is where additive applications, a complex blend of materials, can help to stabilize or enhance properties that were lost during processing. With the blend of additives, plastics can be made safer, cleaner, tougher, and more colorful. [Read more…] about What Additive Applications Improve Resin Characteristics?
