A survey of the role of plastics materials in the motor industry. It discusses progress in the different sectors of automotive engineering, and the possible effect of economic and environmental pressures on the growth of the plastics contribution. Emphasis is given to materials selection and the author explains how a material can be 'right' or 'wrong' for a particular job – and what extraneous factors could change things.
