    Dear all,

    pls help me to deal with the problem of how to catch the meaning of one word.

    The glossary here http://www.sgia.org/glossary/Ff.cfm gives the following definition :

    Flexibilizer -
    material that is added to rigid plastic to make it resilient or flexible.

    Hope it helps.

    The glossary is of course correct. The suffix "-ize" (mostly American English and appearing as "-ise" in British English) is added to a word to give the meaning "to make something into something else" or "to add a certain quality to something".

    stabilize = make stable
    pasteurize = make free from harmful microorganisms
    flexibilize = make flexible
