Basically, plastic is a carbon-based polymer-long-chain or 'organic' molecule. These polymer chains are made using repeating fundamental molecular elements or 'monomers'. Generally, plastic refers to synthetic or semi-synthetic organic condensation or polymerization that can be molded or extruded into objects or films or filaments. The name plastic is derived from the fact that the properties are in a semi-liquid state, which is malleable or has the property of plasticity. The immense temperature tolerance, hardness and resiliency of plastic combined with the general uniformity of composition as well as lightness ensures its use in almost all industrial applications.
