    A generic term for plastics, thermoplastics or polymers, materials are the stuff of which molded and extruded parts are made. Broad subcategories include commodity materials such as polyethylene, polypropylene and PVC; and engineering materials such as nylon, acetal and ABS for applications requiring higher performance in the areas of heat resistance, chemical .   The recent publication Permanent Change: Plastics in Architecture and Engineering is, dare I say, delightful. It is the fourth in a series of conference publications at Columbia University that investigated materiality, this effervescent compilation of history, theory, and, in this case, actual chemistry made for a fascinating reading experience. At the Oculus Book .

    Mondrian and other Neo-Plastic artists thought that the merging of painting, architecture, and design would hasten the coming of an ordered and harmonious society. They intended that this utopic vision, coming from the "dynamic equilibrium" sought out in Neo-Plastic paintings, would spread to the interior of the studio, to the home, the street. Designing Successful Products with Plastics: Fundamentals of Plastic Part Design provides expert insight into design considerations required to bring a concept product or part through design and ready-for-production. The book shows how integrating four key choices—materials, processes, tooling and design—in every design decision allows the designer to fully vet and .

    Experts, however, estimate that 90 percent of current plastics could be derived from plants instead. Bio-based plastics come from the earth, and those that are biodegradable can return to it—often with lower carbon emissions. What affords plastics their malleability are chainlike polymers, comprised of many atoms or molecules bound to one. The Plastics have low specific gravity generally ranges from to So they are light in weight and easily transportable to any place in a large quantity. Uses of Plastics in Building Construction. Plastics are manufactured in different forms such as moulding pipes, sheets and films. They are formed or expanded to produce materials of low.
