Maro Polymer Notes

For over 18 years, Maro Publications has been providing information access tools for the top professionals in the polymer /plastics industry.

Maro's Polymer Notes journal created a topic-based system that classifies and abstracts the most exciting articles and patents in the field.

Now Maro has developed the best outline connections to technical data ... the resource of choice for engineers at Weyerhauser, Eastman Chemical, Colorite, PPG ans BASF ... (a few of our subscribers).
Further. Maro offers a process to build the value generated from your own prospects and customers. Company listings, links, page sponsorship and permission based marketing tools (customized weekly emails and subscription program) are all available to build the success of your marketing efforts.
