We are world-class experts on thermoplastic materials. We know them so well, we wrote a book about them: Thermoplastic Material Selection: A Practical Guide. It can be found in over 120 libraries in 20 different countries.
We understand thermoplastic behavior, not just in terms of physical properties – stiffness, strength, toughness, etc. – but in how these materials perform in the real world, where they are subject to use – and abuse – over long periods of time, in all kinds of end-use environments.
We understand their costs, not just in the price per pound for a given resin, or in the global availability of a specific material from a specific vendor, but in the total cost of production, including use, re-use, and disposal.
We also understand their place in the 21st century, and the cultural, sociological, and political forces that affect the use of these materials.
Bottom line, we know plastics – from the micro view to the macro view.
