A family of polymers that are characterized by entangled polymer chains that are loosely bound.
Amorphous indicates that there is no preferred orientation of the molecules, relative to each other, without external force.
Amorphous polymers are in a super-cooled liquid state and generally shrink less than semi-crystalline polymers. These materials exhibit no x-ray diffraction pattern because they are not crystalline in nature.
