These resins are used in various chemical instrumentation and medical devices due to their high solvent, heat, and flame resistance properties. These resins have a temperature limit of 340 °F.
• Liquid Crystal Polymers: Abbreviated as LCP, these polymers exhibit high tensile strength, and have high heat and chemical resistance. These polymers form areas of ordered structures in liquid phase, but the degree of order weakens in solid form. We work with the following types of injection moldable LCPs. o ZENITE: This liquid crystal polymer has got 45% glass fiber filler, and is used for injection molding intricate industrial parts. This plastic is used for making housings, electronic packaging, microwave oven parts, semiconductor equipment components, etc. o VECTRA: This is a liquid crystal polymer, which exhibits high flame retardant properties as well as excellent mechanical properties. It has good dimensional stability, chemical resistance, high heat resistance, and low

Thermoplastic polyesters change their shape when exposed to heat. Some of the general properties include high tenacity, low water absorption, and minimal shrinking when compared to other types of industrial fibers.
• Polyurethane: This is a highly resilient plastic polymer, which exhibits excellent tear and chemical resistance. Polyurethane is abbreviated as PU, and is available in a wide range of densities, and hardness levels. Some of the common applications of this polymer are bushings, gaskets, seals, and electronic parts.
• Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE): This is one of the widely used and inexpensive thermoplastic with excellent lubricity. This plastic is soft, easy to fabricate, and is not recommended for applications above 150 oF. This polymer is lightweight, and possesses high chemical resistance, electrical insulation properties, and toughness.
• Polypropylene: This is a semi-crystalline polymer, which can be structurally altered to meet process requirements across a wide range of temperatures. Polypropylene has high chemical resistance and low-temperature characteristics. It shows good dimensional stability under humid conditions. We can injection mold the following types of polypropylene

    Normally polyimides are compounded with graphite or glass fiber to get reinforcements to increase the flexural strengths. Thermoset polyimides exhibit low creep and high tensile strength, meaning this material has relative high endurance against high temperature and strains. This polymer coating has very good heat resistance and flame combustion. These properties enable polyimide to carry its job under harsh operating conditions. Generally the advantages of copper and its alloy include: • Good chemical resistance • Good thermal stability • Excellent mechanical properties • Excellent heat resistance Material…

    Ionic liquids can act as dispersing agents in paints to enhance finish, appearance and drying properties. Ionic liquids are used for dispersing nanomaterials at IOLITEC. Safety:- Due to their low volatility they are less liable to contaminate environment by releasing, but are aquatically toxic. Synthesis:- The methylimidazolium and pyridinium ions have proven to be good starting points for the development of ionic liquids. Properties, such as melting point, viscosity, and solubility of starting materials and other solvents, are determined by the substituents on the organic component and by the counter ion.…

    [Qin Yi, Fan Hui Li et.al, 2012] using Dimethyl terephthalate instead of part of phthalic anhydride prepared Polyester resin with the excellent flexibility. He then used sol-gel technology to prepare silicone-modified polyester resin. The properties of the coting film, such as hardness, flexibility, solvent resistance and adhesion were studied and optimized. When compared with commercially available coloured polyester coating SM 3911, the flexibility, adhesion, rigidity , MEK resistance and acid-resistance of the prepared coating were found to be excellent. Bekemeier Thomas et.al, 2013 also studied effect of silicone and polyester compositions for development of heat and weather resistance coating.…

    One process to meet these criteria is chemical bath deposition .The chemical bath deposition technique involves the controlled precipitation from solution of a compound on a suitable substrate. The technique offers many advantages over the more established vapour phase synthetic routes to semiconductor materials, such as chemical vapour deposition (CVD), molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and spray pyrolysis. Factors such as control of film thickness and deposition rate by varying the solution pH, temperature and reagent concentration are allied with the ability of chemical bath deposition to coat large areas, in a reproducible and low cost process. The chemical bath deposition process uses a controlled chemical reaction to effect the deposition of a thin film by precipitation. In the most typical experimental approach, substrates are immersed in an alkaline solution containing the chalcogenides source, the metal ion, added base and complexing agent.…
