A category of polymers that are used typically in demanding applications. They are so named because they have properties that offer higher performance (such as heat resistance) than commodity materials, and are suitable for applications that require engineering to design parts that perform in their intended use. Examples of engineering polymers include nylon, ABS, PC, PEEK, PBT, and POM.
Close-Up on Technology Novel hair-like nanotubes are said to “love thermoplastics” and to provide electrical conductivity at very low loadings.
