Polymers have applications in a wide variety of industries including automotive and aerospace, medical, footwear, tyres and sports equipment.

The Manchester Polymer Group (MPG) is a local society, affiliated to The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, focussing on meeting the needs of its membership with polymer interests in the North West. It exists to advance and develop all aspects of science, engineering, technology and design as applied to the development, processing, application and sustainability of polymeric materials.

The MPG also promotes and supports the education, training and practice in the polymer disciplines and disseminates knowledge relating to polymers within its boundaries. It aims to support its members in career development, provide opportunities for networking and promote the benefits of membership of the Institute.
