Biodegradable polymers

Submitted by frndzzz on Tue, 07/01/2014 - 14:41

Biodegradable polymes are having wide range of applications in different fileds such as pharmacy, medicine , dermatology etc

.Let us check it out some of the biodegradable polymers.

Polymers obtained from biomass products are knows as  agropolymers such as polysaccharides, proteins, starch, ligno cellulose products etc.

Polymers obtained from microorganisms by extraction such as PolyHydroxy Alkanoats (PHA) .

Polymers obtained from biotechnology such as polylactids (PLA). and Polylmers obtained from oil products suc as polycaprolactones(PCL), Polyesteramides (PEA) etc.,

Polymers applications in biomedical engineering

Submitted by frndzzz on Tue, 07/01/2014 - 14:28

Polymers applications is also available in biomedical engineering.

The structure of polymers are used to determine the utilization of polymers is various medical fields such as surgery, ophthalmology,pharmacy, dermatology etc.

Preparations of popular thermoplastic polymers for biomaterials like teflon, nylon, PVC, polyolefin etc.,.

Popular thermosetting polymes like butyl rubber, natural rubber, silicon rubber etc.

Polymers applications in everyday life

Submitted by frndzzz on Tue, 07/01/2014 - 13:56

Polymers have many applications in various fields as well as in everday life.

Let us check it out some uses of polymers.

 Polymers are used in clothing, oil recovery, food and flavours, agriculture, packaging, consumer items like clothing, toys, skin care

Polymers also used in automative parts, pipes, parts, additives etc.

Also used in electronics as well as in medicines such as in formulation of proteins, antibiotics, gel caps or in coating of tablets. 

Applications of polymers

Various applications of polymers are there for different industries which are very useful. Let us see some applications of polymers which are discussed as follows:

Polymers are used in packaging, surgical sutures,  bottles, electrical components, contact lenses, adhesives, medical supples such as blood bag, bone cement etc.

Used if plastic bags, pipes, rubber, fabrics, automative parts, paints, also used in houseware products such as plates, cups etc.,

Polymers additives

Submitted by frndzzz on Tue, 07/01/2014 - 14:07

Polymers additives is one of the applications in polymers to improve the mechanal property, durability or processability.

Fillers such as carbon black or silica gel are added to polymers to improve tensile strength, abrasion resistance and toughness.

Plasticizers are added to reduce the glass transition temperature.

Stabilizers contain antioxidants and UV protectants.

Lubricants are added to allow easier processing.

Other additives like colorants and flame retardants are also added in polymers. 

Definition of polymers

Submitted by frndzzz on Tue, 07/01/2014 - 13:45

Definition - Polymers are large molecules which are made of repeating units of molecules which are called as monomers.

There are lots of applications of polymers in day to day life.

The term polymer is derived from the greek work , In Greek terminology poly means many and meros means parts.

To form polymers, the monomers are connected to each other with the help of covalent bonds and this process is called polymerization.

Polymers is made up of either same type of monomer or different types of monomers.

Polymers properties

Submitted by frndzzz on Tue, 07/01/2014 - 14:19

Polymers have many properties which is very important for different applications of various polymers in different fields.

Some of the propeties are:

(1) Electrical properties: Dielectric constant, leakage current, breakdown voltage, dielectric strength.

(2) Mechanical properties: Tensile strength, modules and elongation.

(3) Thermal properties: Themal stability, Tg, CTE, stress, thermal oxidative stability, Themal conductivity.

(4) Other properties: viscocity, water absorption, moisture permeability, adhesion, chemical resistance, surface finish. etc.

SSLC

SSLC : Secondary School Leaving Certificate

SSLC stands for secondary school leaving certificate. SSLC (also spelled S.S.L.C or sslc) is a certification obtained by student after successful completion of secondary schooling level in India. In India class 10th is considered at the end of secondary level education. SSLC certification is obtained after passing "class 10 board exam."

Disadvantages:

Incomplete removal of the interferences

How Recycling Saves Energy?

Submitted by frndzzz on Wed, 09/30/2015 - 03:04

When we manufacture new products from virgin materials, more energy is consumed. Other natural resources such as fossil fuels (Oil , Petroleum, Natural gas, Coal) are also used during manufacturing of products. But when we make products out of recycled materials we can reduce the use of energy sources. The steps in the process of manufacturing of recycled product is reduced which helps to save energy.
