Here are the most important thermoplastic properties
– turns to a liquid when heated and freezes to a very glassy state when cooled sufficiently
– high-molecular-weight polymers
– stronger dipole-dipole interactions and hydrogen bonding
– can be remelted and remoulded
Another thermoplastic property: recyclable
Thermoplastics are recyclable because can go through melting/freezing cycles repeatedly and can be reshaped.
