Understanding Rheology of Thermoplastic Polymers

Polymer chain branches can vary in number length and distribution along the main chain Increasing the number the size or the flexibility of the branches changes the melt viscosity But if the branches are few and long enough to entangle melt viscosity will be higher at low frequency than that of a corresponding linear polymer of the same molecular weight (Figure 5) The viscosity of long

Viton Rubber Parts

Viton rubber a specific fluoroelastomer polymer (FKM) was introduced into the aerospace industry in 1957 to fulfill its needs for a high-performance elastomer Following its introduction the usage of Viton spread quickly to other industries including the automotive appliance chemical and fluid power industries thanks to its natural resistance to both fuel and oil In addition to fuel and

Steel vs Polymer frame Jericho 941? : guns

Steel vs Polymer frame Jericho 941? Hello for those who had the chance to try these out which did you prefer? The steel version weighs 1060 grams while the polymer one weighs 830 grams I hear the steel frame is well balanced while the polymer one is front heavy The grip on the polymer version seems really comfortable while the steel version appears slick and slippery I also heard that the


Polymer coatings are odor-neutral and promote consistent even color Most white nitrile exam gloves are polymer coated as chlorination causes yellowing In latex gloves polymer coatings provide a barrier between the latex glove material and the wearer helping to limit the migration of latex protein Both chlorination and polymer coatings are effective at creating a glove that dons and


A polymer gel is a type of gel that consists of a three dimensional cross-linked polymer network that can undergo significant deformation This is possible because these gels are soft and filled with a solvent such as water or some other liquid solvent that imparts deformation properties in
