Thermoplastics are defined as polymers that can be melted and recast for different use almost indefinitely. 

Thermoplastics have the simplest molecular structure, with chemically independent macromolecules.

  • By heating, they are softened or melted, then shaped, formed , welded, and solidified when cooled. 
  • Multiple cycles of heating and cooling can be repeated without severe damage, allowing reprocessing and recycling.
