Types of Plastics
Thermosetting: This is the type of plastic produced from thermosetting resin. This type of plastic cannot be remolded when exposed to heat. Examples are polyester, amino formaldehyde, and Bakelite used for producing the handle of enamel pots and dishes.
Thermoplastic: These are plastics made from resin that does not set rigidly heating. They soften on heating and can be remolded into other shapes. e.g. plastic buckets.
