FROM THE INTRODUCTION"Considerable attempt has long past into the research of varied elements of flammability and of varied plastic fabrics, in order that those fabrics that are proving so important to guy will regularly be utilized in methods so that it will no longer compromise his protection. the duty is a constant one, as the kinfolk of plastics keeps to develop, and, in addition to it, its number of functions. a few of these destiny purposes can't also be conceived of today. the desires of guy and his society are altering, and with them the criteria that impact his security, convenience, and comfort. A flammability guide for plastics needs to unavoidably contain quite a few sciences and applied sciences unfold around the complete spectrum of human wisdom, and it truly is most unlikely to debate the entire topics in nice intensity. Any information extracted for awareness are introduced simply because they're believed to be major to the final attempt to make plastics as precious and secure as humanly possible."

00 and more per lb. Venture plastics are characterized by low demand but promising potential, low volume but relatively high sales revenues, low capital intensity, high R&D costs, need for knowledge of end-use applications, and definite product differentiation. 00 to $30 and more per lb. 3 Functional Classification Polymers or plastics can be divided into three groups on the basis of function: commodity plastics, engineering plastics, and high-performance plastics. This functional classification is often but not always similar to the commercial classification.

There are thermoplastic elastomers, which bring together the traditionally separate disciplines of thermoplastics and thermoset rubber. The major types of thermoplastic materials are olefin, including polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP); vinyl, including polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polystyrene (PS), acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS), and acrylic; cellulosic, including cellulose nitrate, acetate, butyrate, and propionate; and aromatic, including polycarbonate (PC), phenoxy, polysulfone, and polyimide.
