High-performance polymers such as polyimides, polyaryetherlketones and sulfone polymers are replacing conventional materials used in aerospace and automotive applications, such as ceramics and metals, mainly due to their lightness, high heat and oxidative resistance, chemical inertness, high dimensional stability, corrosion resistance and ability to maintain mechanical and physical properties over a wide temperature range. In addition, these plastics can be easily moulded to thin-wall and complex geometrical components, offering design flexibility to satisfy continuous demand for component miniaturization, functional integration, safety and esthetical features that lead to their use in the automotive, electric and electronic applications. High-performance polymers are widely used in medical device applications due to combinations of good mechanical and chemical properties, their ability to tolerate various sterilization protocols and biocompatibility.
This Special Issue welcomes contributions to the preparation of high-performance polymer composites, characterization, testing and practical application. The article types include both research articles and reviews.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Polymers is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
