Electrical Plastic Applications

Environmental and Safety

There is a plastic to meet every standard and use for electrical applications. The next time you need a stable, impact-resistant, easy-to-process, safe material, think plastics. Considering the total carbon footprint, including costs of raw materials, manufacture, transport, fabricate, install, and maintenance, plastics compare favorably with more traditional materials. Also, plastics are safer to handle and install. When you consider that most plastics are readily recyclable, they can become the most environmentally responsible and safest choice for many demanding electrical applications.
