Introduction to polymers

Introduction

Unit image

Polymers are materials composed of long molecular chains that are well-accepted for a wide variety of applications. This unit explores these materials in terms of their chemical composition, associated properties and processes of manufacture from petrochemicals. The unit also shows a range of products in which polymers are used and explains why they are chosen in preference to many conventional materials.

This unit is from our archive and it is an adapted extract from Design and manufacture with polymers (T838) which is no longer taught by The Open University. If you wish to study formally with us, you may wish to explore the courses we offer in this subject area. [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)]
