What is the difference between rubber, plastic and nylon? The difference is not big, said small is not small, in general they are inorganic, plastic is a collectively, nylon is also belong to plastic.
Rubber: High elasticity polymer material with reversible deformation. At room temperature elastic, under a very small external force can produce large deformation, remove outside forces can restore the original state. It is widely used as the handle of kitchen utensils and gadgets.
Plastic: A material with plastic behavior, the so-called plastic refers to the external forces, deformation, after the cancellation, can still maintain the state of force. The elastic modulus of plastic is between the rubber and the fiber, the force can be deformed. Soft plastic close to rubber, hard plastic close to fiber.
Plastic refers to the resin (or in the process of direct polymerization of monomer) as the main ingredient, to plasticizers, fillers, lubricants, colorants and other additives as auxiliary ingredients, in the process of flow molding materials. Plastic is a synthetic macromolecular compound that can change the shape of a body freely. Its main ingredient is synthetic resin.It is widely used as plastic measuring cup and measuring spoon set, and other cookie cutter.
Polyamide commonly known as nylon, referred to as PA, is the molecular main chain containing repetitive amide group-[nhco]-of thermoplastic resins collectively. including Aliphatic PA, fat-aromatic pa and aromatic pa. The main varieties of nylon are nylon 6 and nylon 66, which occupies an absolute dominant position.It is widely used as nylon kitchen utensils.
