Kunstoff oder Plastik
Please can someone explain the difference?
"Kunststoff" is a more general word while "Plastik" refers only to a certain group of "Kunststoff" like e.g. PVC. The "treshold" is a fuzzy one, but e.g. hardly anyone would consider Nylon as "Plastik".
Good explanation. I have to add: In a technical context you wouldn't use the word "Plastik", but "Kunststoff" or even "Polymer" or "Polymerwerkstoff".
Hey Elisabeth, all are right here.....but in the colloquial language, you can use both. Everyone will understand you :)
