  • How "green " are green plastics?
    of consumer packaging made from common plastics such as PET and polypropylene (PP) to those associated with polylactide (PLA), a widely used corn-based plastic. Athena's study looked strictly at five packaging items: 16-oz cold-drink cups, two-piece deli containers, envelope window film, foam meat
  • Keeping Thrust Bearings Cool
    . "Maximum Temperature for Hydrodynamic Bearings under Steady Load, " E.R. Booser, C.L. Linkinhoker, and F.D. Ryan, , Vol. 26, pp. 226-235, 1970. "Cool Ideas for Sleeve Bearings " (Machine Design, April 23, 2009) addressed modifications engineers can make to keep bearings cool, prolonging the lives
  • The Future of Barrier Packaging
    versatile enough to to process a variety of materials, including CFF, ACLAR/PCTFE, TOPAS/COC, PVdC, even polypropylene (PP). Many equipment manufacturers developed machines that could process both cold and thermoformable structures. In order to gain the geometries required to provide extreme barrier
  • Medical Device Link . Selecting Materials for Medical Products: From PVC to Metallocene Polyolefins Sherwin Shang and Lecon Woo
    36% of that total will be made up of polyolefins, including high-density polyethylene (HDPE) at about 12%, low-density polyethylene (LDPE) at about 7%, and polypropylene (PP) at about 17% ( Figure 2). However, most of the dollars spent for medical plastics go for minor components made from specialty
