Description

The polymer, thiourea-urea-formaldehyde, was discovered by Edmund Rositer in 1924 while working for the British Cyanides Company. It was made into so-called Bandalasta Ware by Brookes and Adams of Birmingham and used to produce domestic and picnic ware in a range of shapes and colours.
