Who makes what in Europe A useful listing of European suppliers of additives and plastics is set out in Winterplas 1. It gives generic names of the chemicals and cross-referencing to suppliers, polymers, with a parallel list of brand names. Names and addresses of suppliers (and also some contact information on technical and commercial personnel) is set out country by country, with the main products on offer. The method of classification appears to be to list companies only under the country in which they are headquartered (which may militate against the overall aim of making it easier to find local suppliers), while the inclusion of only two companies under the classification of Compounders makes that section irrelevant. Nevertheless, at DM98, or DM 148 for a CD-ROM version it wiil be a valuable addition
