Rubber & Plastics

Industry makes a wide range of products by processing raw rubber and plastics.
Plastics have become the modern material of choice because they make it possible to balance today’s needs with environmental concerns. Plastics is the term used to describe a wide range of synthetic or semi-synthetic materials that are used in a growing range of applications. Everywhere you look, you will find plastics. We use plastic products to help make our lives cleaner, easier, safer and more enjoyable. The relatively low density of most plastics gives plastic products the advantages of lightweight. Examples of plastic products include water tanks, hose pipes, industrial bins and plastic trays. Browse through this category for a variety of plastic products available in Zambian stores.
Plastics are extracted from various materials found in nature, such as natural gas, oil, coal, minerals and plants. The raw materials used nowadays to make plastic come from many places, but most plastics can be made from the hydrocarbons that are readily available in natural gas, oil and coal. The two main processes that are commonly used to produce plastics are polymerisation and polycondensation. Both of these processes require specific catalysts. Different types of plastic raw materials have different types of uses. Polypropylene plastic raw material is very common in interior applications in the automotive industry.

Rubber is a super-stretchy material that finds its way into tens of thousands of different products. There are many different kinds of rubber, but they all fall into two broad types: natural rubber (latex-grown from plants) and synthetic rubber (made artificially in a chemical plant or laboratory). The fact that rubber can be made either soft or hard greatly increases the range of things we can use it for. Examples of rubber products include rubber bands, bathtub plugs, doorstops, earplugs, aquarium tubing, faucet washers, rug backings and hot water bottles.

Rubber hoses are designed for specific fluid, temperature, and pressure ranges and are available in various specifications. Rubber hoses consist of three layers: a seamless synthetic rubber tube; one or more reinforcing layers of braided or spiraled cotton, wire, or synthetic fibre; and an outer cover. The inner tube is designed to withstand the attack of the fluid that passes through it. Rubber hoses are widely used in conveying systems for both pipeline and bends and in systems where a degree of natural flexibility is required. Its particular properties also make it ideal for use in systems where the material being conveyed may be abrasive. Browse through this category for various rubber hoses available in Zambian stores.
Rubber raw materials are seldom made only from macromolecules. They are complex systems containing many constituents that may include two or more elastomers, together with various additives playing different roles. This is done to achieve the desired performance, characterized by several mechanical, thermal, optical, electrical, and chemical properties. Examples of rubber raw materials include Neoprene, Nitrile, Silicone, EPDM and Viton. Different kinds of rubber raw materials have advantages, disadvantages, strengths and weaknesses that may make them more suited for certain situations.

Plastic cards are produced using the latest in digital print technology. In recent years plastic cards have become everyday, essential items, in both our professional and personal lives. For identity plastic cards, the identity part of the card (be it an image or text) is an integral part of the base card, it is printed in sheet format then laminated and punched into individual plastic cards. These cards are durable and available in a range of models for different uses. Plastic cards are a good choice for the identity of participants at events such as conferences, seminars and important meetings. Interested in purchasing plastic cards?

Plastic and rubber are made from the same families of polymers. A polymer is made up of many many molecules strung together to form long chains. One well-known natural rubber polymer is polyisoprene or natural rubber from the sap of hevea trees in Central America.

Plastics and rubber materials are both made from the same families of polymers. The polymers are mixed with a complex blend of materials known as additives. Rubbers are elastomers, these are polymers with elastic properties. This elasticity differentiates rubbers from plastics.

The main difference between rubber and plastic is that plastic is an artificial or synthetic product made through industrial resources whereas rubber is a natural product that is made from the rubber tree.

Rubber: rubber band, balloon, Totes shoe protectors, elastic waistband of pants, latex gloves, rubber tubing, exercise bands, bike tire.

Plastic: garbage bags, plastic shopping bags, plastic food wrap, drinking straws, plastic tubing, water bottle, toys, food storage container.

The very first plastics were made by nature—did you know that rubber from a rubber tree is actually a plastic? Interest in making plastics arose in the 1800s to replace scarce materials such as ivory and tortoiseshell. The first synthetic plastics were derived from cellulose, a substance found in plants and trees.
