Plastics & Polymers

Polymers are chemical substances with large molecules consisting of many small repeating units covalently bonded together. Such chemical substances can be used in a multitude of ways; in the production of plastics, materials of easy processability and shaping, elastomers or rubbers - special polymers exhibiting elastic properties – and fibers, homogeneous bodies with a high length/width ratio and a small cross-section.

Plastics, rubbers and fibers have been well-accepted for their wide variety of applications, both structural and non-structural, and for mass-manufactured as well as one-off specialty products. Because of such range of properties and design technologies, the demand for these materials remains strong despite issues like growing concerns about their environmental impact and competition from alternatives such as metals and glass.
