[ Editorial Perspective of Plastic Machinery Network
] In the field of construction, the demand for plastic building materials is growing and presenting a development trend of becoming a new star of building materials. With more advantages than traditional building materials, such as corrosion resistance, strong weather resistance, impact resistance, light weight, etc., more and more plastic building materials are entering our lives.
According to statistics, the development of plastic building materials has grown into a secondary pillar industry of the plastics industry, with annual growth rates increasing by double digits. Among them, profiles and pipes have become a widely used category in plastic building materials, and they have been used over time. Rates are constantly rising. Some time ago, the General Office of the State Administration of Market Supervision, the General Office of the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development and the General Office of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology jointly issued the "Implementation Plan for the Certification of Green Building Materials Products." The building materials industry has shown sustainable development in green, environmental protection, energy saving, and consumption reduction. Under this wave, green and environmentally friendly new plastic building materials have won widespread attention.
Where is plastic building material green?
An important feature of green building materials is that in the production process, less energy input and waste pollution are emitted.
In the production of many traditional building materials, the generation of pollution such as carbon dioxide, heavy metal sewage, and refining residues will adversely affect the surrounding environment. Building materials made from natural plant resources will also become a heavy environmental burden in front of a large demand. burden. With the rising demand for environmental protection and the increasingly severe impact of actual environmental problems, the wind of green sustainable development has also blown into the building materials industry. The country is vigorously promoting the application of new energy-saving and environmentally friendly materials. Green building materials made from waste and renewable materials have become popular. .
Among them, plastic is a widely used material with recyclable value, and it is naturally important to make building materials. Such as: plastic pipes
, plastic tiles
, hollow plastic formwork, thermal insulation materials and other building material products, have replaced traditional materials well. And the production is simple and convenient, such as: blow molding, extrusion, injection molding, etc. are common production methods, greatly reducing the pollution during production. It has good economic benefits, saves costs, and has good environmental performance and stability.
It is also worth noting that the green aspect of plastic building materials is that they can be used for secondary use of products such as waste. For example, in more and more fields of wood-plastic products, their raw materials can come from recycled plastics, crop by-products (such as straw, rice husks, etc.), with a very eye-catching environmental protection label.
Development of plastic building materials will affect the press industry
At present, the environmental protection trend of various industries has strengthened, and the environmental protection trend of building materials will also continue. With the impact of national policies and changes in consumer perceptions, there will be an ups and downs impact on the building materials market, and this effect will continue for a long time.
It can be seen that green and environmentally friendly plastic building materials will usher in a longer period of development. Although there may be incomplete policies, unregulated markets, and disordered product standards during this period, compared with the currently relatively mature industries, This period of pain is inevitable, and it will be an orderly and healthy growth period.
Pipes, plates and profiles are important areas of plastic building materials in China. The production of plastic building materials has a close relationship with the plastic machine industry. For example: to improve the performance of building materials in different environments (including low temperature, high temperature, friction coefficient, abrasion resistance, self-lubricity, mechanical properties, etc.), not only the requirements for material research and development, but also the progress in production technology and equipment New challenges.
This will allow the plastics machinery industry to break through existing difficulties, and have the opportunity to learn from others and solve more similar technical problems. Therefore, the development of plastic building materials in the future will rely on the upgrade and advancement of plastics machinery while also developing the plastics machinery industry. Directions provide new inspiration.
Conclusion: Plastic building materials are in a rising period of development, and the future demand for new green building materials will further consolidate the advantageous position of plastic building materials. In this process, the plastic machinery industry will also benefit from the dividends brought by the development of plastic building materials, and can promote the innovation and upgrade of technology and equipment, so it is very important to seize this opportunity.
