6 Beberapa jenis plastik: 1. Poly Propylene (PP) Polypropylene (PP) is a thermoplastic polymer, used in a wide variety of applications, including packaging, textile, stationery, plastic parts, food containers, woven bags, laboratory equipment, automotive components and many more. Polypropylene is commonly recycled product
7 Beberapa jenis plastik: 2. Poly Ethylene (PE) HDPE (high density PE): is resistant to many different solvents and has a wide variety of applications, including: Containers, Fuel Tanks for vehicles, Folding tables and chairs, Storage sheds, Plastic bags, Water supply pipes, bottles - suitable for use as refillable bottles etc. and many more.LDPE (low density): is widely used for manufacturing various containers, dispensing bottles, wash bottles, tubing, plastic bags for computer components and various molded laboratory equipment. Its most common use is in plastic bags.PE is thermoplastic polymers.
8 Beberapa jenis plastik: 3. Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC) Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC): is the third most widely used thermoplastic polymer after polyethylene and polypropylene. It is used in clothing and upholstery and tubing, flooring and electrical cable insulation. It is also commonly used in pool toys, sewerage pipes, Electric wires, Pipes, Signs boards (sheets), PVC Ceiling Tiles etc. and many more.
9 Beberapa jenis plastik: 4. Epoxies, Phenolics, Silicones. Epoxies, Phenolics, Silicones adalah jenis polymer yang masuk kategori thermosetting plastics.Rantai polymer nya jenis cross-linked structure.Memiliki sifat kekerasan, kekuatan, kekakuan dan dimensional stability yg lebih baik.Memiliki sifat getas (brittle).
10 Polymer ChainsFigure 7.5 Schematic illustration of polymer chains. (a) Linear structure – thermoplastics such as acrylics, nylons, polyethylene, and polyvinyl chloride have linear structures. (b) Branched structure, such as in polyethylene. (c) Cross-linked structure – many rubbers or elastomers have this structure, and the vulcanization of rubber produces this structure. (d) Network structure, which is basically highly cross-linked – examples are thermosetting plastics, such as epoxies and phenolics.
11 Behavior of PolymersFigure 7.6 Behavior of polymers as a function of temperature and (a) degree of crystallinity and (b) cross-linking. The combined elastic and viscous behavior of polymers is known as viscoelasticity.
12 Amorphous and Crystalline Regions in a Polymer Effects of Crystallinity:Polymer become stiffer,harder, less ductile, morerubbery, more resistantto solvents and heatFigure 7.8 Amorphous and crystalline regions in a polymer. The crystalline region (crystallite) has an orderly arrangement of molecules. The higher the crystallinity, the harder, stiffer, and less ductile the polymer.
