Effect of material change of plastic product is investigated in this research paper. The parameter observed are waste recycle, impact property of product, aesthetic look, cycle time, production rate and cost of product. In this study it was found that by changing the material of product from thermoset plastic to thermoplast plastic and production process from compression molding to injection molding, the product becomes eco friendly because thermoplast material is recyclable. It was also found that impact strength and production rate/hour was also improved due to reduction in cycle time. The aesthetic look : smoothness of surface and glossy look of the product was become better and long lasting. And finally the cost of product was reduced tremendously. The research was carried out in a small scale industry with a case study of ball knob of machine tool handle lever
