Biopolymer Database Adds Applications

Facebook Share Icon LinkedIn Share Icon Twitter Share Icon Share by EMail icon Print Icon

An Application Database has been added to the Biopolymer Database available at Plastics Technology’s PLASPEC Global materials datacenter (plaspecglobal.com). The biopolymer database allows material searches by polymer, producer, mechanical or thermal properties, and by attributes such as biodegradability, compostability, food approval, and renewable-resource or recycled-resin content.

The biopolymer database allows material searches by polymer, producer, mechanical or thermal properties, and by attributes such as biodegradability, compostability, food approval, and renewable-resource or recycled-resin content. The application database can be searched by part, industry, material tradename, or polymer family. The biopolymer database is a joint project of M-Base Engineering + Software GmbH in Aachen, Germany (Plastics Technology’s partner in PLASPEC Global), and the Univ. of Applied Sciences and Arts in Hannover, Germany.

    There’s more to TP polyesters than you think. You may know PET, PBT, and PETG—but what about PCT, PCTG, PCTA, and PTT? If you’re not sure what they are, how their properties compare, and who sells them, we have the answers—and lots of new developments to report.

    Though often criticized, MFR is a very good gauge of the relative average molecular weight of the polymer. Since molecular weight (MW) is the driving force behind performance in polymers, it turns out to be a very useful number.
