Fabrication Processes

As indicated in Chapter 1, the family of polymers is extraordinarily large and varied. There are, however,

some fairly broad and basic approaches that can be followed when designing or fabricating a product

out of polymers or, more commonly, polymers compounded with other ingredients. The type of

fabrication process to be adopted depends on the properties and characteristics of the polymer and on

the shape and form of the final product.
