Thermoplastic polyester elastomer is consists of hard and soft segments. Hard segments include crystalline polybutylene terephthalate, while soft segments include amorphous polyethers. Thermoplastic polyester elastomers have flexibility of rubber, strength of plastic, and processibility of thermoplastics. They can be easily processed by convectional thermoplastic processes such as injection molding, calendaring, rotational molding, extrusion, and melt casting. Thermoplastic elastomer is used to manufacture parts of electrical devices, automobiles etc. that requires high temperature.

AlgiKnit wins EUR 100,000 for 'Seaweed Textile'

Related Keywords: AlgiKnit, clothing industry, fibers, polyester, seaweed textile, spun, T-shirt, Textile Industry, textile recycle marketplace, yarn

Amsterdam
Summary: 
The American start-up AlgiKnit makes fibers from kelp that can be spun into yarn. AlgiKnit offers a solution that could transform the highly polluting textile industry into a circular economy by using biomaterials. After having been used, this seaweed textile can serve as compost or animal feed. It also reduces the carbon footprint of the clothing industry, because no harmful fiber particles are lost during washing, such as is the case with polyester. The company is working on a prototype of a T-shirt and sneakers will be next.

Fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) rebar has brought a solid construction revolution that is in full positioning with Saudi Aramco efforts to encourage nonmetallic solutions

Related Keywords: acidic solutions, alkaline solutions, fibers, FRP rebar, liquid resin, polymer, Saudi Aramco, thermal variation

Saudi Arabia
Summary: 
Saudi Aramco collaborated with King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, and King Saud University, on separate projects to evaluate the performance and durability of FRP rebar and FRP sheets under the typical local environmental conditions specifically considering exposure to alkaline solutions (i.e., seawater and subkha), acidic solutions, thermal variation, the outdoors, and fire, a few years back.

Australian company comes up with an extensive new way to produce rayon fibers

Related Keywords: biomass, cellulose, cotton or wool, fibers, Nanollose, rayon, rayon fibers, wood pulp or plant fibers, wood- or plant-derived cellulose

Austrailia
Summary: 
To produce rayon the old fashioned way it needs chemically intense processing of wood pulp or plant fibers. The cellulose that’s extracted is treated with caustic soda, carbon disulfide, and sulfuric acid. You’re no doubt familiar with how nasty sulfuric acid can be, but carbon disulfide is usually dangerous stuff, too and it’s exposure can lead to cramps, muscle weakness, and a loss of feeling in the extremities.
