Plastic Raw Materials

It is the name which is given to the materials which are gained by culling the tie which is named monomer, which is shaped with carbon(C) hydrogen (H), Oxygen (O), nitrogen (N) and other organic or inorganic elements, in the molecule groups which are in simple form and by transforming it to a long and chained shape which is named polymer.

As it is understood from the definition, plastics are not found as ready in nature. They are gained by human’s intervention to the elements in nature. Carrying out happens under a certain temperature and pressure by using catalyzer and by putting monomers into reaction. When plastic is gained at first, it may be in dust, resin or granular form.  In general, plastics are gained from the material which is left over as a result of processing the crude oil which is used in petroleum refineries. According to the researches which have been made, only 4% of the oil in the world is used in plastic production. Plastic becomes extinct approximately in 1000 year.
