  • Continuous-fiber Extrusions Make Strong Thermoplastics
    . Thermoplastics include polypropylene, polyurethane, PET, nylon 6, and PEEK, with other materials to be available in the near future. Reinforcing fibers are primarily glass or carbon fiber, but the process is suitable for aramids, metaramids, and other fibers. Here's a closer look at some other features
  • Long-glass-fiber PP hits the road
    , and permits volume material purchases. Cost is another factor. PP has found a new home in many interior, exterior, and underhood applications at the expense of high-cost engineering resins such as ABS, polyurethane, and nylon. With improvements in catalysts and processes, PPs can compete
  • Hungry for large parts? Try a composite sandwich
    technology is a multistep sandwich composite made by combining three primary processes -- thermoforming, reinforced fiber preforming, and polyurethane foam molding. Complex, three-dimensional parts as large as 25 to 250 ft2, in production volumes beginning at 10,000 units, are possible. The new
  • Medical Device Link . Medical Textile Structures: An Overview
    spun materials from polyurethane are examples of products made directly from polymers.) There is, therefore, a hierarchy of structure: the performance of the final textile product is affected by the properties of polymers whose structures are modified at between two and four different levels
  • RIM goes bumper to bumper
    . Reaction-injection molding (RIM) is a relatively new manufacturing technology that produces highquality polyurethane auto parts. One of the earliest commercial applications of RIM was the all-polyurethane bumper fascia on the Monza 2 + 2 for General Motors in the early 1970s. That application
  • Better bones
    mold to exacting tolerances. The tooling epoxy also doesn't retain excessive heat so molded parts cool quickly. And the tooling is durable enough to mold more parts per day than rigid polyurethane tooling. The tooling
  • Medical Device Link . Specialty Compounds for Medical Applications: An Introduction
    the information presented should be helpful in the production of any polymer-based device, the discussion is particularly geared toward compounds for catheters and other medical tubing products. Depending on the precise application, a typical starting resin might be PVC, thermoplastic polyurethane
  • Transparentportation: Concept car gets "all clear "
    polyurethane gel with shape memory. And the wheels, trim, wishbones, fuel tank, and headlamps are glass-fiber-coated aluminum. Even the indicator and dashboard
