The Industrial Revolution

A Little History of the Industrial Revolution


Prior to the Industrial Revolution, humans used such polymers like tar, oil, resins and gums as primary sources of material.  Then, the Industrial Revolution introduced a whole new market of material to use for various industries, such as military, medical, automotive and aerospace.  Synthetic polymers began a new era of manufacturing, quickly becoming a necessity to many distributors and manufacturers alike.


Today, manufacturers of plastic components and products must consider variable components in order to utilize the most suitable material for the particular application.  These factors include mechanical, thermal and electrical requirements of the material.


Moreover, for many purposes, manufacturers can create an interdisciplinary material that combines two materials into one.  Considering the distinct qualities of each material can help distributors, manufacturers and engineers make comprehensive decisions about how products will be designed and what materials will be selected for a given design.
