• Polyester (PES) polymers– Fibers, textiles.
• Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) polymers – Softdrink bottles, peanut butter jars, polymer
film, microwavable packaging.
• Polyethylene (PE) polymers – Carry bags, polymer bottles.
• High-density polyethylene (HDPE) polymers – Polymer jugs and detergent bottles.
• Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) polymers – Pipes, shower curtains, window frames, flooring.
• Polyvinylidene chloride (PVDC) (Saran) polymers – Food packaging.
• Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) polymers – Outdoor furniture, garbage bags, artificial
flowers, packaging, shopping bag
• Polypropylene (PP) polymers – Car bumpers, Bottle caps, drinking straws, appliances.
• Polystyrene (PS) polymers – Packaging foam, food containers, polymer tableware, disposable
cups, plates, cutlery.
• High impact polystyrene (HIPS) polymers -: Food packaging, vending cups.
• Polyamides (PA) (Nylons) polymers – Fibers, toothbrush bristles, tubing.
• Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) polymers – Electronic machine cases (e.g., computer
screens cases, printers, keyboards), drainage pipe.
• Polyethylene/Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (PE/ABS) –low-duty dry bearings.
• Polycarbonate (PC) polymers – Compact discs, eyeglasses, traffic lights, lenses.
• Polycarbonate/Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (PC/ABS) – This is a blend of PC and
ABS. It creates a stronger polymer. Used in car interior and exterior parts, and mobile
phone bodies.
• Polyurethanes (PU) polymers – Cushioning foams, thermal insulation foams, surface coatings.
• Celluloze Acetate (CA) polymers – Glassesframe, sign boards
• Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE) polymers – frozen food packaging, cable insulation
• Ethylene-vinyl Acetate (EVA) polymers – Shoe Soles
• Ethylene-Ethylacrylate (EEA) polymers – surgical bags, surgical gloves
• Ethylene-Methylacrylic Acid (EEAA) polymers – Safety glass
• Polyamide 6 (PA-6) polymers – Gear wheel, Screws
• Polyamide 66 (PA-66) polymers – Meachanical, electrical parts and gadgets
• Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) – TV case, electric-plated polymer product
• Styrene-butadiene (SB) polymers – paper coating, fabric coating
• Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) – windshield, optical lens, sign board
• Polycarbonate (PC) polymers – Mechanical parts
• Phenol-Formaldehyde (PF) polymers – bakelite products, brake disc, gear wheel
• Urea-Formaldehyde (UF) polymers – lighting parts, phone parts
• Melanine-Formaldehyde (MF) polymers – Calculator exterior
• Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) – beverage bottle, video tape, chain, bearing
• Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT) – mechanical parts, exterior of electrical applicances
• Epoxy Resin (EP) polymers – adhesive, paints
• Styrene-Butadiene-styrene (SBS) polymers – shoe sole, cable protector and insulator
• High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) – phone case, radio case, electrical appliance parts
