Unit Three

Looking at materials and their working properties

Unit Three
By the end of the unit, you will all be able to:

Each of the following learning outcomes apply five key material areas:

1. Papers and boards
2. Natural and manufactured timbers
3. Metals and alloys
4. Polymers
5. Textiles

  • Know the primary sources of materials for producing a variety of materials in each of five key material areas
  • Be able to recognise and characterise different types of materials in each key area

To be secure in your learning, you should also be able to:

  • Understand how the physical and working properties of a material products affect their performance

To achieve the higher grades you should also be able to:

  • Consistently select the most appropriate material appropriate to a given task

Unit vocabulary includes:

Material, properties, absorbency, density, fusibility, electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, physical / working properties, strength, hardness, toughness, malleability, ductility, elasticity, GSM, microns, hardwood, softwood, deciduous, coniferous, evergreen, felling, veneer, ferrous, non-ferrous, alloy, ore, furnace, Bauxite, electrolysis, ferrous, ferrite, carbon, additive, oxidise, Verdigris, patina, galvanise, thermoforming, thermosetting, polymer, VOCs, yarn, warp, weft, selvedge, plain weave.
