Plastics: Workshop Practices and Industrial Processes
Produced by CIEC Promoting Science, this booklet contains information and activities of interest to teachers of design and technology. It looks at working practices in industry and schools relating to thermoplastics and provides an introduction to basic techniques for schools and the more common processes found in industry.
The resource is split into two parts. Section one considers safety procedures to be observed in respect of plastic materials and goes on to outline some basic practical processes. The second section describes some of the more common industrial processes in use.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
