Trade Names: I – L

These Trade Names relate only to plastics and a few other polymers. The list is mainly historical, including many names which have had a very short existence as well as those which have become commonplace.

Many of the names were given by manufacturers who fabricated objects using plastics materials made by another manufacturer.

The list is still under construction, and only trade names taken from sources prior to about 1933 are included.

Please contact us if you have any names which should be included in this list.

There are many trade names for synthetic rubbers to be found at this link.
