Other Polymers

SGT deals in many other polymers including the following products:

  • Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)

    This is one of the world's most widely used polymers. By itself it is quite rigid and used in construction materials such as pipes, house siding, flooring. Addition of plasticizers make it soft and flexible for use in upholstery, electrical insulation, shower curtains and waterproof fabrics.

  • Polystyrene

    Polystyrene is transparent but rather brittle, and yellows under UV light. Widely used for inexpensive packaging materials and "take-out trays", foam "packaging peanuts", CD cases, foam-walled drink cups, and other thin-walled and moldable parts.

  • Nylon

    Nylon has a fascinating history, both scientific and cultural. The common form Nylon 6.6 has six carbon atoms in both parts of its chain; there are several other kinds. Nylon 6.6 has good abrasion resistance and is self-lubricating, which makes it a good engineering material. It is also widely used as a fiber in carpeting, clothing, and tire cord.

  • Polypropylene (PP)

    Polypropylene is used alone or as a copyolymer, usually with ethylene. These polymers have an exceptionally wide range of uses — rope, binder covers, plastic bottles, staple yarns, non-woven fabrics, electric kettles. When uncolored, it is translucent but not transparent.

  • Polyurethanes (PU)

    Polyurethanes are the single most versatile family of polymers. Their major use is in plastic foams for thermal insulation, adhesives, synthetic fiber, but a very large number of other applications, including paints and varnishes and plastic wheels used in fork-lift trucks, shopping carts and skateboards.

  • Polyethylene (PE)

    Polyethylene is probably the polymer we see most in daily life. Polyethylene is the most popular plastic in the world. Its primary use is within packaging(plastic bag, plastic films, geomembranes, containers including bottles ) and children’s toys.

  • Polycarbonate (PC)

    They are easily worked, molded, and thermoformed. Because of these properties, polycarbonates find many applications. Polycarbonate, or specifically polycarbonate of bisphenol A, is a clear plastic used to make Compact discs, lightweight eyeglasses, shatterproof glass. A balance of useful features including temperature resistance, impact resistance and optical properties position polycarbonates between commodity plastics and engineering plastics.
