This week is Construction Appreciation week so we wanted to take a moment to appreciate the hard work those in this industry do for our communities and families.
The construction industry always seems to be booming and is currently one of the largest segments of plastics utilization. It’s all part of building our nation and as a leading manufacturer of extruded thermoplastics, we’re happy to play a small part in growing our great country.
The most commonly used thermoplastics utilized in the construction industry include HDPE, UHMW, Nylon, Acrylic, PVC, CPV, PVD, and Polycarbonate.
Thermoplastics are used during and post-construction in a variety of places including:
In an industry where strength and longevity of parts are critical, thermoplastics are chosen for these critical components because they are lightweight, load beading, allow for flexibility in forming, and have excellent weatherability.
So, to all those who contribute to building our homes, stores, offices, roads, and other community infrastructure, thank you for all your hard work to turn our cities into communities we can all be proud of.
If you work in the construction industry and need quality extruded thermoplastic parts or components, get in touch with our team who can help you make these from thermoplastics.
