Plastic is created either by using a Polymer Press to refine Petroleum or by shearing Glossy Dreckos.

Usage[edit | edit source]

It is used to make many useful items such as:

Production[edit | edit source]

Polymer Press produces Plastic from Petroleum.

Glossy Drecko grows Plastic scale when in Hydrogen atmosphere.

Properties[edit | edit source]

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