Its possible that your not talking about polycarb, PVC or ABS plastic. Maybe your saying plastic and your actually thinking molded silicon which neither absorbs heat nor transfers heat. I have molded silicon potholders and oven mitts.

Metal vs plastic intake discussions are the stuff of internet boredom.
Plastic was more of a blanket material yes. Think, plastic intake manifold and such.
