Thermally conductive plastics are made by compounding conductive fillers like graphite fibers, ceramics with polymers. The added fillers eliminate hot spots in components by spreading out the heat more evenly than unfilled plastics. To know about their various advantages, benefits, applications, etc, read
Concern over the safety of drinking water and decline in water quality has been attributed to phasing out of old pipes systems. Hygiene, cost effectiveness, and zero-corrosion of plastic pipes provide a clear advantage in water delivery systems. To know about the various commonly used plastic pipes for hot and cold water systems, regions in which each variety is more widely used, features and benefits of each, the larger pipe manufacturers, etc, read
Waterproof membranes are used in a wide range of civil and building applications. The primary material used in membranes worldwide is polymer-modified bitumen. Polyethylene accounts for around 50% share, followed by polypropylene, PVC, and EPDM and butyl rubber. High growth and low growth regions in Europe, required production equipments, environmental impact of membranes, etc, read
The recession impacted the construction industry in many Gulf sectors, but as projects get refinanced, building is resuming and demand is expected to rise again for plastic pipe.
