If your asking me i'm sorry don't know the answer to that. I'm a mother of 3 and trying to finish my grade 12 and not very good in science. Was asking for some help, search on the internet and having some issues with coming up with an answer.

Because the glass's are made from sand , calcium compounds materials to make du to their high melting point they should be heated to high temperature to get solution of those materials which should be homogeneously distributed and also cooling should be done slowly hence they take lots of time. since paper is produced from the plants its also one of the difficulties to get large amount of plants and their extraction etc etc where as the polymers are synthetic one the required materials are obtained from the direct petrochemicals just by distillation since these materials are stable to very low temperature process to make polymer is so less energy consuming :)
