Polymers or plastics manufacturing includes a variety of processes and products developed for a wide range of materials, geometries, and applications.

Sealing Wounds Quickly And Effectively With Polymer-Based Adhesive That Mimics Barnacles

The most commonly used method for sealing wounds is suturing. However, in emergency situations, sutures are not the best option because they take a long time to apply. For years, scientists have been working on alternative methods for sealing wounds. Other methods and materials used to stop bleeding have been available for the past few [...]

Polymer Fiber Designed With Soldiers In Mind

Scientists at the Army Institute for Soldiers Nanotechnologies have created a programmable fiber that can ultimately provide power and transmits data. It was designed to sense, analyze, store, and infer activity when sewn into a piece of clothing. When used to produce a soldier’s uniform, it could have the ability to generate power, provide vital [...]

2D Polymers – Strong But Feather Light

Engineers have created a revolutionary type of polymer, called 2DPA-1, that promises greater strength then ever before while remaining remarkably light weight. Typically, polymers (which include all plastics), consist of chains of building blocks called monomers. These one-dimensional chains grow by adding new molecules onto their ends. The new two-dimensional polymer was created by chemical [...]

Polymer Nano-Composites (PNC) Could Help Decrease Spread Of Virus In Social And Medical Environments.

There are several ways PNC may protect human against viruses, such as Covid 19. The use of Polymer Nano-Composites (PNC) coatings could reduce the need for long term lockdowns and social distancing while also reducing the PPE shortages experienced by medical professionals. One way PNC could help is by introducing a self-antiviral barrier between product-to-product [...]
