High performance fibers are those fibers which offer exceptional strength, heat and chemical resistance. High performance fibers are niche products but some of them are manufactured in large quantities according to the demand from end-user industries. High performance fibers offer various properties such as fire resistance, high elongation, high tension and insulation among others. High performance fibers include various fibers such as aramid fibers, carbon fibers, melamine fibers, polybenzimidazole fibers (PBI), fluoropolymer fibers, polyphenylene sulfide
Fluorosilicone rubber is a type of elastomer which is used in a wide range of applications due to its excellent mechanical and physical properties akin to silicone rubber. In brief, fluorosilicone rubber is called as modified version of silicone rubber which has been fluorinated to finish up the polymer chains so that its chemical resistance is improved. However, fluorosilicone exhibits higher resistance to mineral oils and fuels but lower hot air resistance than silicone rubber.
Polyisobutylene (PIB) is a commercial polymer or elastomer that is used in a number of applications in various industries due to its thermal stability, flexibility, and impermeability to gases. Polyisobutylene an elastomer or synthetic rubber is the only rubber that is impermeable to gases, and was first developed in 1930’s. Polyisobutylene is used in the production of tubeless tires due to its ability to retain air for longer periods. Polyisobutylene is used in various other
Triboelectricity is defined as a charge of (static) electricity generated by friction. The concept was first applied in the 1940s for electrostatic painting and is now widely used in photocopy machines. This phenomenon becomes a concern in wafer manufacturing processes since water is a polar molecule and deionized water (~18MOhm) is a good insulator [1, 2]. When working at the nanoscale of microchip production, even low levels of contamination have the capacity to alter the
