MSEL FY 2001 Programs and Accomplishments: Polymers Division



B M. Fanconi, Eric J. Amis


The Polymers Division provides measurement methods, standards, and concepts to facilitate technology development, manufacture of products, commerce, and use of synthetic polymers. Projects are selected based on assessments of current needs and in anticipation of future needs as determined from topical workshops, industry roadmaps, as well as visits to companies and other research organizations. Much of our work is performed collaboratively with customers. Over 35 companies, in addition to trade associations and other federal agencies participated in the work of the Division. The close interactions with customers assure that the work remains focused.
