You are...

Are you an architect, a contractor or owner of various building  and civil works and you work with constructions where polymer materials are involved?  You know better then anyone that polymers are widely used in construction, building and infrastructure. Construction and utility parts in buildings are often partly or completely polymeric or elastomeric products. This can be as wall panels, roofing materials, piping systems, seals, coatings and a large number of other products. 

For all these products it goes that they need to be suitable for their application and that you have to be sure that you can rely on the well functioning. For instance wall panels that are mounted on large buildings should not break and fall down unexpectedly. Also leakages of seals can easy lead to high costing damage. For other parts like foils or bearings it goes that after building they might not be able to be reached or replaced and therefore failure should be avoided completely.
