Welcome to Chemical Retrieval on the Web
Library of Plastics, Resins, and Elastomers
This new web-based library gives a brief overview of the most common resins, plastics and elastomers, their properties, uses, and manufacture. It also provides information about products made of plastics like fibers, fabrics, films, and seals and products that are formulated with resins like adhesives, sealants, and coatings.
All articles are full text and presented online in HTML with many cross-references and links to other websites that provide additional information.
CROW’s online Library of Plastics, Resins, and Elastomers will be updated regularly with new and revised articles. We hope that it will become in time an invaluable resource for students, researchers, engineers, and other professionals in related fields seeking information about plastics.
