Selected general problems in polymer processing
Polimery 2000, No 1, 22
The 1960–1997 total and per-head productions of polymers in the world and in Poland are presented (Figs. 1–3) with particular reference to the total and per-he ad consumptions of polymers (including production, exports, and imports) in 20 countries including Poland in 1993–1997 (Table 3). The 1997 balance sheet is given for plastics with due account for technological utilization. General application directions are presented including the characteristics of processing machines and tools with particular reference to the situation in Poland (Tables 4–6). Processing plants and companies are characterized in general.
Keywords: high-molecular-weight plastics, production, consumption, balance sheet in Poland, Poland's processing tool and machine market
