AbstractThis Digest discusses briefly the general characteristics of thermoplastics, and presents typical useful properties of the technically important types of these materials. It also gives a brief description of the six major families of thermoplastics. Understanding of the nature and properties of the thermoplastics will enable designers and users to understand their performance and suitability in building and engineering applications. It may also suggest new uses in these and related fields.
