Plastics Protect

Intelligent plastics protect us – at home, at work, in the sports arena, on the road, and in the operating room. Plastics protect the foods we eat and are integral to the many protective products that we use daily -- incubators, defibrillators, smoke detectors, oxygen masks, plastic food packaging, helmets, air bags, seat belts and even speed bumps. Medicine has been forever changed because of the intelligent application of plastics.

Whether you are a fireman facing a raging inferno in plastic protective clothing flame resistant to 350 degrees C, a police officer using a plastic bulletproof vest, a hockey player wearing plastic skates and protective padding, a shopper in a grocery store, or a young bicyclist in a thermoplastic protective helmet, the intelligent application of plastics helps keep you safe.
