Finding information on polymers can be extremely difficult and there are many sources of information but little that is really concrete and most of it is difficult to understand (unless you are a polymer specialist - as we are). This series aims to give some consistent numbers and to explain what they all mean. Comments on the series and the contents are welcome. Send them to the usual email address: rkent@tangram.co.uk
