The paper manufacturing industry creates paper most commonly for writing and printing on; however, it is also widely used as a packaging material, in many cleaning products, in a number of industrial and construction processes. Plastics have long been aiding the production of paper.
Advantages of plastics
The advantages of plastics in Paper Manufacturing 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
Materials used in the manufacturing and production of paper and forestry products include Polycarbonate, Nylon and UHMW.
