In many applications, polymer works with other materials during the manufacture and applications. Plastic bags, containers, bottles (PE, PP, PVC, PET) Styrofoam Coffee cup (PS form) Clothes (polyesters, polyamides, etc.) Brushes, Pens, Markers, Papers, Inks Shoes, Socks (Acrylic Polymers, Nylon) Home insulation, Moisture barrier (Styrofoam sheet, vinyl films) Laminated floor joints, Plywoods Vinylfloor (PVC) Carpets (indoor and outdoor) (Nylon, PP, Polyester fibers) Paints and coatings (Acrylic latex) Pipes and Hoses (PVC)
