National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council, Washington, DC.
Several aspects of plastics used in the building industry are discussed, and a general information format for specifying plastics in building construction is given. This format includes--(1) description of product, (2) physical properties, (3) design criteria, (4) installation, (5) maintenance, (6) economics, and (7) case histories. Several uses of plastics are outlined in relation to this information format including--(1) roof materials and assemblies, (2) ceiling components and acoustical materials, (3) structural floors and finished flooring, (4) exterior wall components, (5) pipe and pipe fittings, and (6) interior wall coverings.
