Plastic is an advanced building material. It is created either by using a Polymer Press to refine Petroleum or by shearing Glossy Dreckos.

Usage[]

It is used to make many useful and decorative items, notably Steam Turbines, Comfy Beds and Transit Tubes

Thanks to its excellent Radiation Absorption rate of 85%, Plastic is tied in first place with Lead and Depleted Uranium for buildable radiation absorber.

5 kg Plastic = 1 Data Bank unit

Production[]

Polymer Press produces Plastic from Petroleum:

833.33 g/s Petroleum = 500 g/s Plastic + 8.33 g/s Steam + 8.33 g/s Carbon Dioxide

Glossy Dreckos grow Plastic scale when in Hydrogen atmosphere.

Properties[]

Plastic is described as antiseptic, but this has no in-game effect. It has a very low thermal conductivity. When melted, it turns into Naphtha; melting objects constructed using Plastic will also convert them to Naphtha.

Trivia[]

The in-game chemical symbol (C3H6)n is the real life chemical formula for polypropylene.
