  • This category of fibre gets easily deformed on exposure to heat and can also be easily bent.
  • They are melt processable, which means that they are first heated, formed, and then cooled in their final shape.
  • Polyethylene, Polypropylene, Polystyrene, and PVC are some of the examples of these kind of plastics.
  • They find extensive use in making toys, electrical insulator and can be polished well, hence often used in manufacturing vehicle windows and light covers.
