    group of biodegradable polymer that covers both specialties in the biomedical field and commodity applications. These polymers have amide and ester groups on their chemical structure which give good thermal and mechanical properties. Polyesteramides are polymers with hydrolysable backbones which able to biodegrade under particular conditions. Strong hydrogen bonding interactions between amide groups back up some typical weakness of aliphatic polyester. The properties of polymer like hydrophilic or hydrophobic

    Polyester Fibres Indtroduction: Polyester are polymers made by a condensation reaction taking place between small molecules, in which the linkage of the molecules occurs through the formation of estes groups. Polyesters are commonly made by interaction of a dibasic acid with a dihydric alcohol: HOOC-X-COOH+HO-Y-OH OC-X-COO-Y-OCO-X-COO-Y-OCO The formation of polyester was studied by Wallace H. Carothers of du Point during the investigation of polyesters which lead eventually to the

    1.1. Polyesters Polyesters are the polymers that contain ester functional group in their main chain. The polyesters can be classified according to the composition of their main chain as aliphatic and semi-aromatic in addition to aromatic polyesters. Also can be thermoplastic or perhaps thermoses. All common polyesters are thermoplastics (Rosato, L. et al. 2004).According to the composition of their main chain; polyesters can be classified as shown in table 1. 1.1. 1.

This type of structure is called as bicontinuous nanoporous structure: two continuous phases are the polymer matrix and air pores. Homogeneous PSU-CO2 mixture separates into two continuous phases: PSU-rich phase (i.e., polymer matrix) and CO2-rich phase (i.e., voids). Although both cellular structures are bicontinuous nanoporous, and cell size and relative density are also similar, they seem to have different morphologies

    low-resilience polyurethane foam. Polyurethane are also commonly used as constituents of paints, varnishes, adhesives, and foams. Memory foam was initially referred as the “slow spring back foam” It is created by inserting and feeding gas into a polymer matrix. The foam has an open-cell solid structure that when pressure is pressed against it, it stays in that state and slowly springs back to its original shape. It is also made from a substance called viscoelastic. Memory foam was developed in 1966

    WINDSHIELD REPAIR: WHAT IS IT? Your vehicle's windshield is composed of three layers: two pieces of glass separated by a thin layer of "PVB" (polyvinyl butyrate). PVB is the plastic film that essentially holds it all together. Depending on the density of the outer-layer and the force of a rock impact, the glass can flex and break. Unless the windshield is completely shattered, most often the damage is in the form of a rock chip. These are generally in the shape of a star, bullseye, or tiny crack
