Polymer in construction
Polymer materials in construction are:

Epoxy resins: 
Epoxy resins are used in Solid resin, Terrazzo flooring, anchor fixings and adhesives.
Epoxies are thermoset plastics made by the reaction of two or more industrial chemical compounds.

Ethylenetetrafluoroethylene (ETFE): 
ETFE used in Fabric structures. ETFE is available as a flexible film. This enables it to be used to create curved transparent facades. It is a super-lightweight material. ETFE is usually installed within a metal framework, where each unit can be lighted and manipulated independently.

Ethyl vinyl acetate (EVA): 
Eva is used in Solar panel encapsulants.

Expanded polystyrene (EPS): 
EPS is used in Concrete moulds, insulation and packaging.

Lighting housings, fittings in hot water systems and glazing.

FRP Bridge sections, cladding panels, sinks, surfaces and coatings.

Foam underlay, damp-proof membranes and coatings.

Polyisobutylene (PIB): 
Sealants and waterproof membranes.

Polymethylmethacrylate / Acyrlic (PMMA)
Surfaces and sinks.

Polypropylene (PP): 
Sound insulation, and pipes.

Polyurethane (PU): 
Sealants and concrete jointing.

Polyvinylchloride (PVC): 
Sealants, concrete jointing and fabric structures.

Bridge bearings and flooring.
