The Future of Plastics

The plastics industry is evolving for a sustainable future. Plastic in and of itself isn’t bad. However, due to a societal emphasis on single-use plastic production and a lack of an advanced recycling infrastructure, many controversies have ensued related to plastic waste and pollution. According to spglobal.com, “Despite broad public sentiment that plastic is harmful to the environment, it is proving hard for the global economy to quit producing new plastic products. Unlike other ecologically friendly practices, attempts to eliminate plastics have not been directly helpful to the bottom line of many consumer companies. S&P Global Ratings forecast that plastic packaging is unlikely to be replaced in the near future for many of its current uses, as plastic holds advantages over some alternative packaging options like paper or glass.”  In this blog post we will explore several ways we can educate ourselves about the current state of plastic, integrate recycled plastic products into our daily minutiae, and motivate businesses to consider recycled plastic in their supply chains for a greener future.

Which Glues Work for Polycarbonate Plastic

Polycarbonate is a modern plastic material with many beneficial properties, namely its high optical clarity, and great durability. It is visually similar to glass, but thirty times more impact-resistant, making it as strong as some metals. Consequently, there are many use cases for polycarbonate, such as a replacement for security windows, or tiny non-conductive parts for machinery.
 
Regular solvents won’t adhere to polycarbonate. In fact, standard household glues may cause polycarbonate to undergo “crazing,” which occurs when chemicals break down the polymer’s microscopic bonds, causing small, crack-like streaks. While this won’t damage the polycarbonate significantly, it will create an unseemly appearance.
 
Thankfully, there are many effective methods for gluing, or fusing, polycarbonate plastic. Gluing and fusing are not exactly the same, however. While glues leave an adhesive behind, fusing causes a chemical reaction that allows the polycarbonate to melt back together. This is similar to the processes used to glue acrylic plastic.
 
Each of these bonding and fusing agents have different chemical properties, which may be ideal for different use cases. Let’s go over four common methods used to repair, bond, or fuse polycarbonate plastic. Continue reading Which Glues Work for Polycarbonate Plastic
