Poly-(1-phospha-isoprene): phosphorus-containing natural rubber analogue
Goodyear’s 1839 discovery of the vulcanization of natural rubber obtained from rubber trees marks the beginning of the modern rubber industry. A variety of synthetic rubber products were subsequently developed. Scientists have now introduced a new, interesting variant: a phosphorus-containing ...
Using the principles behind the formation of sandcastles from wet sand, North Carolina State University researchers have achieved 3-D printing of flexible and porous silicone rubber structures through a new technique that combines water with solid and liquid forms of silicone into a pasty ink ...
Findings by scientists could transform the multi-billion-dollar plastics and rubber industries
Synthetic rubber and plastics - used for manufacturing tires, toys and myriad other products - are produced from butadiene, a molecule traditionally made from petroleum or natural gas. But those manmade materials could get a lot greener soon, thanks to the ingenuity of a team of scientists from ...
Carmel Majidi and Jonathan Malen of Carnegie Mellon University have developed a thermally conductive rubber material that represents a breakthrough for creating soft, stretchable machines and electronics. The new material, nicknamed "thubber," is an electrically insulating composite that exhibits ...
Soft materials that can use magnetic fields can provide an engine for microswimmers
One day, microrobots may be able to swim through the human body like sperm or paramecia to carry out medical functions in specific locations. Researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart have developed functional elastomers, which can be activated by magnetic ...
ExxonMobil announced today plans to expand its specialty elastomers plant in Newport, Wales. The company said the project, expected to be completed in late 2017, will result in a 25-percent increase in its global capacity to manufacture Santoprene™ thermoplastic vulcanizate (TPV), ...
Ceresana's Fourth Filler Report
Fillers are more than just cheap filling materials: They can also improve characteristics, such as stability, weather-resistance, and electrical conductivity, of numerous products. Many plastics would not be of any use without fillers. For the fourth time now, Ceresana analyzed the whole market ...
Azelis announced a new distribution agreement with Robinson Brothers, manufacturer of specialty organic chemicals. Effective from 1st of January 2016, Azelis will represent Robinson Brothers in Germany for the promotion and distribution of the Robac Technology range. The portfolio includes ...
LANXESS plans to leverage the deal for growth, debt reduction and share buy backs
The specialty chemicals company LANXESS and Saudi Aramco plan to establish a joint venture for synthetic rubber. LANXESS and Saudi Aramco subsidiary, Aramco Overseas Company, will each hold a 50 percent interest in the joint venture, with annual sales of approximately three billion Euro in 2014. ...
