eGuide2 Plastics

Plastics have made it possible to produce cost effective, mass-produced displays incorporating complex shapes. Today, the majority of P-O-P displays contain plastics and their use has  changed the creative scope of the designers and engineers who use them. When using plastics, it’s important to consider the manufacturing processes to use and the plastic type that’s suitable for its intended end use. Durability, cost, colour, transparency, print, friction, temperature, elasticity, UV stability must all be considered. Our eGuide2 Plastics aims to provide a valuable first top resource to improving knowledge and understanding.
