What is Thermoplastic Resin?

Thermoplastic resins are a composite which, when heated, melts or turns into a liquid. If cooled it will harden. But does not change the structure of the components. It is so easy to recycle. Generally, in its implementation, thermoplastics do not require other components to strengthen their shape. Unlike thermosets which usually need other fibers for modification. As we know…

What is Polyester Resins?

Polyester resin has many advantages, such as low cost, resistance to water and some chemicals, and reasonable temperature resistance. In Indonesia, there are many industries, especially in the marine industry. both ships and boats use this composite. Because it has low shrinkage properties, polyester is also used for 3D printing. Polyester was invented around the 1940s. In the early era,…

Acrylic resins are all around us

Acrylic resin has properties such as elastic, resistant to attack, waterproof, good adhesion, and has a bright color. so that many things can be done by processing the above resins, ranging from the automotive industry, medicine to even the arts. In the field of dentistry. One of the benefits of acrylic resin is as an artificial tooth because of its…

What is Acrylic Resins?

Acrylic resins are polymeric materials that contain acrylic monomers. These monomers are esters of acrylate, methacrylate or their derivatives. Acrylic resins are copolymers, which can contain other monomers in the polymer chain to obtain a final product with different properties. A wide variety of monomers can be selected to enhance properties, such as weather resistance, moisture resistance, oxygen permeability, flexibility,…

What is Amino Resins?

Amino resins are thermosetting polymers. The most common types of amino resins are urea-formaldehyde (UF) and melamine-formaldehyde (MF). This resins are characterized by being clearer and harder (tensile strength) than phenolics. However, their breakability and heat resistance are lower. Melamine resin has better heat and moisture resistance and better hardness than its urea analogues. This resin is widely used in…

History of Alkyd Resins

The first alkyd was developed in 1920 by R. H. Kienle of GE. Then it was patented in 1927. However, in 1937 the patent was not valid because it prioritized art. Talking about the history of alkyd resins, of course, it cannot be separated from the knowledge of polymers and the history of paints. In 1926, DuPont, a chemical manufacturing…

What is Alkyd Resins?

The name alkyd, formed from alcid, “alc” for alcohol and “cid” for acid. As the name suggests, this compound is formed from alcohols and acids. This type of resin is obtained by polycondensation of polyhydric alcohols and polybasic acids. Fisher and Hayward (1998) explained that there are two methods of making alkyd resins. The first method is the Monoglyceride Process….
