The success of polyamides is due to a combination of characteristics that make them ideal for many applications. Polyamides combine optimal mechanical properties with excellent chemical resistance; they can be used as metal substitutes or even as elastomers; they can be used in both protected and aggressive environments (UV rays, bad weather conditions, etc.); this is possible due to the numerous types of polyamides that manifest varied and specific characteristics.


The term polyurethane encompasses a vast family of products with numerous varied characteristics in terms of mechanical, chemical and physical properties. Through the right choice and proportion of polyols and diisocyanates it is possible for products to range from soft and sponge-like, such as flexible foams with extremely low density (pillows, mattresses, etc.) to products with elevated resistance to compression and flexion stress (for applications in sporting goods, such as hiking boots, ski boots, etc.). In order to have a general guide regarding the characteristics of polyurethane, the primary distinctions to consider relate to its chemical nature, or rather, if it has an ester or ether base. In commerce there is also a third family of polyurethane, which derives from the synthesis of caprolactam, which exhibits intermediate characteristics between polyester and polyether.


Increasingly more technical applications in aggressive environments, in terms of temperature, chemical agents and atmospheric conditions, made it possible for fluoropolymers to find more space on the market. These polymers offer extremely high performance, though at elevated costs regarding both raw materials and production. Depending on the bond between carbon and fluorine, and their arrangement in the molecular structure, one can have varying products with different characteristics. Concerning chemical resistance and use at low and high temperatures, the father of all fluoropolymers is PTFE, which demonstrates almost complete inertia towards most known chemical reagents and has work temperatures that range from -260 to +260 °C. After PTFE, these other fluoropolymers can be found, in order of importance: PFA, FEP, and PVDF.


Polyethylene, making up 40% of the total volume of plastic materials produced in the world, is one of the most diffused polymers in everyday life. Despite its simple chemical composition, there are numerous varieties of polyethylene with differing thermal and mechanical properties.
