There was a time, several decades ago, when the word plastic had a somewhat negative quality about it. That was when plastic materials were just coming on the scene in a variety of commodities. That is no longer the case. The strength and durability of plastic materials have not only improved, but have proven themselves in the greatest test of all, the test of time.
So, what is it about plastic that gives it its strength and its long life? There are a couple of things.
First of all, it is non-corrosive. It doesn’t rust and deteriorate like metals can. This means, it can withstand exposure to the elements over longer periods of time, and aren’t affected by the moisture content of feed or other materials. In addition, the plastics used in our products can withstand extremely cold temperatures. One of the improvements made in plastic manufacturing over the decades. Secondly, plastic is strong. It is very difficult to make a dent in our plastic products, much less, puncture or tear an opening in them. Because of their seamless construction, they are nearly indestructible.
As time goes on, you will see more and more products being produced out of plastic, that used to be made of metal. Plastic has proven itself as a product that can go the distance and outlast its competitors.
