RETAIL TRADE

The retail trade industry moves products from the production or wholesale processes to end users. Plastics aid in distribution, the graphical display and finally structural support of products or services.

Advantages of plastics

The advantages of plastics in Retail Trade are numerous. Plastics are much lighter than metal, which equate into better fuel economy and cheaper to manufacture parts. Additionally, the lighter weight aids in safer material handling. Plastics can be designed to be impact and dent resistant, and modified for improved strength. Corrosion resistance, color and texture flexibility, the economical components and aesthetics are other advantages of plastics.

Materials Utilized Within Industry
