Properties of polymers
This page covers the following topics:
Polymers can vary in density depending on the conditions they are made under and the monomers that have combined to form them. A common example is polyethene which is made in low density and high density forms for its different uses.
Plastics are a type of polymer produced by addition and condensation polymerisation. They can be classified into two groups - thermosetting polymers or thermosoftening polymers.
