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.
