Thermosetting and thermoplastic products

Thermosetting and Thermoplastic: what are the differences?

Plastics fit into 2 categories: Thermosetting and Thermoplastic material.
These two have different properties and therefore the type of plastic used depends on the use and product.

The difference between Thermosetting and Thermoplastic is that:

- Thermoplastics can be heated and shaped over and over again;
- Thermosetting material can only be heated and shaped once.

A thermoplastic is a polymeric material that becomes soft and formable when heated and rigid when cooled.

A thermosetting is a material that undergoes irreversible chemical changes when it is cured through heat, catalysts, or ultraviolet light and, once cured, the thermosets plastics structure cannot be altered.
