For the safety and security of goods, almost every industry uses some type of a plastic packaging material for transporting its goods. Plastic is one of the most popular items that people use on a daily basis.
The history of modern plastic starts in the 1950's with the use of the first plastic bags. But it was only in 1954, when Giulio Natta discovered polypropylene and the Dow Company came up with the polystyrene that the revolution in modern plastic started. Late 60's and 70's saw the toughening of the plastic and the testing of its compatibility with various metals.
