Plastics materials are composed of very large moleculescalled
polymers 
. Polymers are constructed from relativelysmall molecular fragments known as
monomers 
that are joined together Synthetic polymers, which includes thelarge group known as plastics, came into prominence in theearly twentieth century. Chemists' ability to engineer themto yield a desired set of properties (strength, stiffness,density, heat resistance, electrical conductivity) has greatlyexpanded the many roles they play in the modern industrialeconomy.
 
Overview
 
A plastic is a material that contains a polymerizedorganic substance of large molecular weight as anessential ingredient, is solid in its finished state, and atsome stage in its manufacture or its processing intofinished articles can be shaped by flow.
The plastic industries have developed and grown then,since their discovery. Plastics can be used in variousapplications because of their toughness, waterresistance, excellent resistance to corrosion, ease of fabrication, and remarkable color range.
