For polymer materials to compete with metals in engineering applications, they must possess adequate mechanical properties. Some crystalline plastics are able to offer enhanced properties but these tend to be very expensive. Often a viable alternative is to modify commodity polymers through further processing techniques which introduce molecular orientation, thereby producing high modulus polymers. [Continues.]
