Polymers comprises one of the biggest markets in production. Various kinds of polymers are used both in high technology and daily customer products. In this content, we will give you brief and introductory information about polymers, classification of polymers below.
Polymers include very long chain of molecules and atoms in regular basis. In general, these long chains of atoms achieved with carbon atoms. Because of that, the term polymer, takes its name from its molecular structure. Greek word ‘poly’ means ‘many’, ‘meros’ means ‘part’ which ‘polymeros’ means that many molecules and atoms constitutes a part. There are bunch of polymers avaliable in nature, but production of polymers in serial basis is very late compared with metals and ceramics. Use of natural polymers is not common as synthetic polymers. Production of synthetic polymers dated back around mids of 1800’s. If we think the historical production and use of metals and ceramics, production of synthetic polymers is very late.
Classification of polymers has three elements: Thermoplastic(TP) polymers, thermosetting(TS) polymers and elastomers(E). Categorization of polymers is made according to their physical natures generally.
Classification and explanation of polymers can be summarized like above. Do not forget to leave your comments and questions about classification and explanation of polymers below. Your feedback is very important for us.
