Molded plastics are synthetically produced from non-metallic compounds, which can be molded into various shapes for commercial applications. These are highly versatile, efficient, and malleable, and can be hardened to achieve the desired consistency. These molded plastics can be modified by adding pigments to their polymers. Polyvinyl chloride, polypropylene, polystyrene, polyethylene, and others are some of the compounds that can be used as molded plastics in building & construction, automotive & transportation, consumable & electronics, packaging, medical, and other applications.
