A generic term for plastics, thermoplastics or polymers, materials are the stuff of which molded and extruded parts are made. Broad subcategories include commodity materials such as polyethylene, polypropylene and PVC; and engineering materials such as nylon, acetal and ABS for applications requiring higher performance in the areas of heat resistance, chemical resistance, impact, fire retardancy or mechanical strength. This Zone includes links to many material subsets, including those mentioned above as well as thermoplastics elastomers, biopolymers and nanocomposites.
