4. What are the characteristics of thermosetting plastics?

1. It cannot soften once it moulded even at high temperature.
2. These plastics have cross linked molecules
3. These links are broken at high temperature but important properties are destroyed.

5. Give some example for thermosetting plastics.

Phenol formaldehyde, urea formaldehyde, phenolic, polyester, epoxide.

6. Distinguish between thermo and thermosetting plastics.

1. They can be repeadly softened 1. Once hardened and set, they do by heat an hardened by cooling. not soften with the application of heat.
2. They are comparatively softer 2. They are more stronger and and less strong harder than thermoplastics
3. They are produced by the 3. They are produced by the Polymerization condensation Polymerization

2. Sprue.
3. Knockout pins
4. Cooling systems
5. Transfer chamber.

10. What is the use of torpedo and hopper?

Hopper – It is used to feed the granular form of material in to the heated cylinder.
Torpedo – It helps in spreading the moulding material uniform around the wall of the heated cylinder.

11. What is the use of rotational moulding?

It is used to produce the hollow component like toys. Normally it is used for polyvinyl chloride, polyethylene.

12. What is calendaring?

It is used to produce sheets and films from plastics materials such as polyvinyl chloride, polyethylene.

13. What is Parison?

The blow moulding process starts with the production of a tube made of thermoplastics material. This is called parison.
