The term ‘’plastic’’ is came from the Greek word ''plastikos'', and its meaning is fit for moulding. This refers to the property of material, like malleability or plasticity during manufacture, which permits it to be mould, pressed, or changes into a variety of shapes - such as sheets, vessels, plates, tubes, bottles, boxes, and much more.
