A successful application of an engineering thermoplastic or thermosetting plastics are requiring more than identifying a specific product or grade. Three areas – design, product, process – are all interrelated and the appropriate rules in each area must be followed to ensure a successful application.Plastics specialists who need to explain their design decisions and the design limitations to non-plastics specialists.
Detailed plastic product design will always require detailed knowledge of the application, the processing method and the selected plastic.This information can only be provided by raw materials suppliers, specialist plastics product designers and plastics processors but there is a need to get the basics of the product design right in the first instance.
Using the hints and tips provided in this guide will enable designers to reduce initial errors and will lead to better and more economic design with plastics.
