Urea Formaldehyde (UF)
Urea-formaldehyde, also known as urea-methanal, is a non-transparent thermosetting resin or plastic. These resins are used in adhesives, finishes, particle board, MDF, and molded objects.

Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
Thermoplastic. Can be found in two forms, rigid or flexible. The rigid form is used in the construction of pipes, doors, window frames and membership cards. The flexible type is used in cable insulation and areas to replace a rubber

Polypropylene (PP)
Also known as polypropene, is a thermoplastic polymer used in a wide variety of applications including packaging and labeling, textiles (e.g., ropes, thermal underwear and carpets), stationary and furnature.

Polyethylene terephthalate (PET)
Polyethylene terephthalate, is the most common thermoplastic polymer resin of the polyester family and is used in fibers for clothing, containers for liquids and foods and thermoforming for manufacture.

Melamine Formaldehyde (MF)
Melamine formaldehyde is a hard, thermosetting plastic. It is the main constituent of high-pressure laminates, such as Formica and Arborite, and of laminate flooring. Melamine-resin tile wall panels can also be used as whiteboards.
