The topic of the issue you are reading is "Composites and engineering plastics". We have tried to cover the field broadly with articles on applying engineering plastics in automobile and aircraft construction, glass-filled plastics processing, as well as on composites' properties like vibration and noise absorption and on additives for engineering plastics.
Other sections' articles are also connected somehow with "material" flavor of the issue: we offer you a review on modern materials' reservation and transportation equipment and an article on transparent plastics for blow molding.
I would say that all these articles lead the readers to the following conclusion: sometimes improving the product quality and consumer characteristics or launching a new product manufacturer should not turn his mind to equipment. Facts prove that manufacturing problems can often be solved through the advantages given by state-of-the-art polymer materials and additives. Sufficient information on the subject and "material" benefits can be the basis for success.
