Polycarbonate Polymers: History, Synthesis, Properties, Pros and Cones, and Applications
Polycarbonate polymers (PC) have carbonate groups in their chemical structures. They are basically a type if thermoplastic polymers. These polymers are strong and tough materials and are easily thermoformed and molded, so they have a wide use in engineering applications. They are also widely used in many other wide range applications i.e. electronic, data storage, construction, aircraft etc.
Aramid Fibers/Polymers: History, Synthesis, Properties, Applications/Uses
The Federal Trade Commission definition for aramid fiber is: "A manufactured fiber in which the fiber-forming substance is a long-chain synthetic polyamide in which at least 85% of the amide linkages, (-CO-NH-) are attached directly to two aromatic rings."
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) Polymers History
Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene has been available since the 1940's. In attempts to produce bulletproof plastic sheets during the last years of World War II, polymer systems were developed from special butadiene acrylonitrile copolymers and styrene acrylonitrile copolymers with high molecular masses.
