International Resource News-March 22, 2018--Polyplastics introduces new series of low-dielectric liquid crystal polymers
for new communication devices
This new model now removes not only all polymers and halogenated materials, such as PVC or PTFE, but also high-temperature polymers such as liquid crystal polymers
The combined breadth of resins represented by SABIC and Aster cover everything from commodity polymers such as polypropylene and nylon to high performance materials including fluoropolymers, polysulfones, polyethylene imines and liquid crystal polymers
Ticona Engineering Polymers has extended its Vectra portfolio of halogen-free liquid crystal polymers
(LCP) to include a new range of high flow, high performance thermoplastics for use in modern electronic portable devices.
Liquid crystal polymers
(LCPs) are a unique class of polymers that maintain an ordered structure in the melt phase similar to that exhibited by low molecular weight nonpolymeric liquid crystal compounds in the liquid phase.
Supported by journal and patent literature from 2000 onwards, Fink approaches material from a chemistry and engineering perspective with the most current data available as he covers carbazole polymers, polyp-xylylenes, polyarylene vinylenes, polyphenylene ethers, polyphenylene sulfide, polyaryl ether ketones, polyarlene ether sulfonespolyarylene ether nitriles, triazole polymers, polyoxadiazoles, polynaphthalates, polyphthalamides, aramids, polyamide imides, polyimides, and liquid crystal polymers
. Fink provides full information on properties, fabrication methods, special additives, applications, suppliers, commercial grades, environmental impact and recycling.
The new class of liquid crystal material, called "LC[P.sup.h.]" is capable of withstanding temperatures exceeding 400[degrees] C and is three times as tough as conventional liquid crystal polymers
(LCPs), according to the company.
Gerhard Pfaff of Merck KgaA, which reviews the many intricacies of pearlescent, interference, liquid crystal polymers
and holographic flake pigments.
A lower-cost potential replacement for polyimide, fluoropolymer, nylon and other films, these liquid crystal polymers
are being heavily researched for applications as diverse as beer bottling, electronic circuit boards and medical tubing.
To make the liquid crystal polymers
more responsive to magnetic fields, small units of organometallic compounds such as copper complexes are added.
