What is the difference between molded and extruded plastics?
Molded plastics are parts made by injecting molten material into a mold, forming a 3D shape. Many of the plastic parts we use in everyday life are molded plastics.
Extruded plastics are extruded (or forced out) materials melted and formed into a continuous profile. These are parts such as window sections, drinking straws, pipes, and seals; this method is used to form 2D shapes.
