(2) PP: Working temperature is -30¡æ to +140¡æ, light weight, high temperature resistance, good chemical stability, and easy to age.
(3) ABS: working temperature is -50¡æ to +70¡æ, high strength, good toughness, anti-aging and corrosion resistance.
(4) FRP: Good insulation, high temperature resistance, waterproof, acid and alkali resistance, oil resistance, and chemical corrosion resistance. It is suitable for special industries such as mining, petrochemical industry, smelting and high temperature.
2. What are the colors of helmets? What are the differences?
