What are plastic parts trays made of?

As you may know, lastic parts trays are typically thermoformed from various plastic materials, each offering distinct advantages:

  • Polyethylene terephthalate (PETG): This is a popular choice for its:
    • Strength and durability: It can withstand everyday wear and tear, making it suitable for storing heavier parts.
    • Clarity: It offers good transparency, allowing for easy identification of stored items.
    • Chemical resistance: It resists many common chemicals and solvents, making it ideal for various industrial applications.
  • Polyvinyl chloride (PVC): This is a less common option due to environmental concerns, but it is sometimes used for its:
    • Low cost: It is a relatively inexpensive material.
    • Flame retardancy: Some formulations offer flame retardant properties. However, be aware that burning PVC releases harmful fumes.
    • Chemical resistance: Like PETG, it can resist some chemicals and solvents.
  • Styrene: This is another cost-effective option, but it is:
    • Less strong and durable compared to other options like PETG.
    • Brittle: It can crack or break easily if handled roughly.
    • Not as widely accepted in recycling programs due to environmental concerns.

Other less common materials used in specific applications include:

  • High-density polyethylene (HDPE): Offers good durability and chemical resistance, but may not be as transparent as PETG.
  • Polycarbonate (PC): Very strong and durable, but typically more expensive than other options.
  • Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS): Offers a good balance of strength, impact resistance, and affordability.

Choosing the right material for a parts tray depends on factors like the weight and type of parts it will hold, the desired level of transparency, chemical resistance needs, and cost considerations.
