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.

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 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.

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 properties

Tablet Coating: color variation Defects

Submitted by frndzzz on Thu, 07/03/2014 - 04:54

During Tablet coating , color variation defect is observed sometimes.

 This defect is caused by improper mixing on the tablets, or by insufficient coating and also caused by uneven spray pattern on tablets.

 After coating the migration of soluble dyes or any additives during drying may give tablet a spotted and mottled apperation.

Due to this defect color variation is observed.

What are "Tablet Coating - Defects"?

Submitted by frndzzz on Thu, 07/03/2014 - 04:41

List of  some tablet coating defects which may affect the tablet formulation and bioavailability of drug are as follows.

(1) Picking and Sticking,

(2) Color variation,

(3) Orange peel effect,

(4) Twinning,

(5) Capping and lamination,

(6) Mottled color,

(7) Roughness,
