What Is the Melting Point of Plastic?

Answer

Melting point is the temperature at which a substance begins to turn from a solid to liquid. The melting point of plastics varies greatly from material to material and will even very somewhat within that material group as different polymers have different melting points. For medium and high density polyethylene the melting point is in the range 120 to 130 °C. The melting point for low-density polyethylene is typically 105 to 115 °C.
1 Additional Answer
The melting point of plastic is 80 degrees C. Plastics are usually polymers of high molecular mass and may consist of other substances so as to improve the performance and/or cut down the production costs. There are mainly 2 types of plastics: thermosetting polymers and thermoplastics.
