Other Design Applications for Plastics



This chapter includes some of the newest and most interesting fields of application for plastics and the design efforts made in these areas. Plastics are used uniquely in these applications because of specific material properties and material modifications that can only be done with polymer-based materials. By incorporating some innate characteristics of the materials and adapting them to operate in unusual environments, some of the most significant problems of mankind are being solved by the use of plastics.
