Plastics in Manufacturing
Plastic parts are becoming more common in industrial machining and architectural glazing applications. For industrial application, parts previously fabricated of metal are now being replaced by plastic parts that provide longer wear and top performance without lubrication. Results indicated reduced maintenance costs and less downtime.
Because of plastic's superior forming capabilities, it is also the ideal material for forming applications whether it be for an industrial housing unit or an architectural product. The superior impact resistance of plastics is required by law in many glazing applications.

ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (EMHE) sets out to completely remodel the home of a disadvantaged family in one week. During a recent episode, the show’s producers wished to create a unique chair that would have the appearance of being made from ice. To provide this look they needed a unique plastic material that could be formed in a very short time, and a fabricator that was up to the task of turning the design of the chair into reality.
Thanks to a San Antonio-based plastics distributor and a superior acrylic product, this was one extreme makeover that was extremely easy to produce. The episode’s storyline profiled the Craft family of Hondo, Texas. This family was particularly deserving due to the father’s instrumental role in the community and the youngest daughter’s diagnosis with Alobar Holoprosencephaly, a serious brain malformation. High on the list of priorities was bringing a smile to Samantha’s face, the oldest daughter with a penchant for Alaska. Designers transformed her bedroom into the Igloo Room, and to accentuate the chilly ambiance, EMHE designers envisioned a funky, ice-clear chair as one of the highlights. Click here for full story.
