Applications Of Polymers

Polymers are a highly diverse class of materials which are available in all fields of engineering from avionics through drug delivery system, bio-sensor devices, Holography, 3D printing, tissue engineering, cosmetics etc. and the improvement and usage of these depends on polymer applications .The applications of polymeric materials and their composites are still increasing rapidly due to their below average cost and ease of manufacture. This in turn fuels further development in research.

Research and development of bioplastics substances for medical, dental and pharmaceutical use have hovered on the front lines for years. Gelatin-based capsules made of animal or vegetable matter, for example, which naturally dissolve in the digestive tract, are in common use. Biodegradable stitches, which do not require manual removal after healing, are regularly used to suture wounds and surgical incisions.

Biopolymers are available as coatings for paper rather than the more common petrochemical coatings. Bioplastics are used for disposable items, such as packaging and crockery. They are also often used for bags, trays, fruit and vegetable containers and in marine sciences .These plastics are also used in non-disposable applications including mobile phone casings, carpet fibers, insulation car interiors, fuel lines, and plastic piping. New electroactive bioplastics are being developed that can be used to carry electric current. Medical implants made of PLA (polylactic acid), which dissolve in the body, can save patients a second operation. Compostable mulch films can also be produced from starch polymers and used in agriculture.
