Specialty Materials Specialty materials include many of the basic ingredients that are designed to provide specific physical, chemical, mechanical, or thermal properties to a finished product. They also include finished products themselves, such as construction materials or molded components made of plastic, rubber, or composites. Specialty materials are used extensively in the world’s largest industries, including automotive, aerospace, construction, electronics, energy, food, mining, and paper and packaging.
