Replacement of Conventional Materials by Plastics in Various

Plastics, owing to their superior material characteristics, such as heat
resistance, strength-to-weight ratio, and chemical stability, are
increasingly being used to replace traditional materials, including
bronze, stainless steel, cast iron and ceramics, in various commercial
and industrial sectors, including packaging, construction and automotive.

The growing global consumer awareness regarding environment-protection
and the resultant demand for fuel-efficient and lightweight vehicles
have forced manufacturers in the automotive sector to reduce the overall
weight of vehicles. This is primarily being done by replacing metal with
engineering plastics as the major material for the production of
automotive components and ancillaries, including electrical and systems,
dashboard trims, bumpers, etc.

Similarly, in the packaging sector, the demand for faster packaging
processes and growing popularity of aesthetically-pleasing
complex-shaped flexible packaging by end-users in the food & beverage
industry have created considerable demand for adopting plastics in the
place of conventional materials.

In building & construction industry, for all the applications where
translucent or transparent functions are required, the solution was
glass. But it has its own drawbacks, such as fragileness, not easy to
install, poor thermal efficiency, etc.
