Polymer structures





The structure of a polymers is fundamental to the properties and as with the Periodic Table of Thermplastics it is possible to group polymers according to their family and their properties.

We have created the polymer structures book to list and group most of the common polymers and to give their basic structure.

The diversity of polymer types makes it impossible to include all of the variations in one simple table and this book only includes the most common polymers.

These tables are for comparison only and no responsibility can be taken for the accuracy or the use of the information contained herein.

The table may be freely reproduced provided full acknowledgement of the copyright is given.

Comments and suggestions for improvement are welcome.
