Polymers make up most of the world we live in, but their applications are vastly different. When we look at the materials available to us, we can clearly see there is a better choice for use in pointe shoes.
The term “plastic” tends to have a negative connotation. Years ago, one used to compare plastic to that of lesser quality. Now, this statement could not be farther from the truth. The practical purposes of this evolving material continues to grow and shape the manufacturing world. With the invention of thermoplastics, companies all over the globe have been able to use them in a variety of ways. Thermoplastics range from nylon t-shirts to Teflon™ cooking pans. The range is so vast and unique allowing an enormous amount of diversity in material characteristics.
