Modern plastic moulding processes include a very large number of different materials depending on the actual application or specific requirements as to the actual products.
It might be a question of impact resistance or tensile strength, surface shine, durability to UV-radiation, temperatures or chemicals.
Another factor taken into consideration might be a claim for various approvals that apply for products in contact with food, drinking water or medical applications.
In addition, a whole range of other demands for the final product might be an issue as for example of cosmetic character or other product related specifications.
