SYNTHETIC POLYMERS

Polyethylene (pe)

Inert to content, semi-crystalline, inexpensive and moldable to almost any shape. Different gauges (thicknesses).

  • Low Density PE (LDPE). Semi-crystalline (typically 50%), whitish, soft, flexible and tough. Poor UV resistance.

  • High Density PE (HDPE). Semi-crystalline (typically 70-80%), more solid and rigid than LDPE

Polypropylene (pp):

Inert, allows recycling without a major environmental impact, rigid and heat resistant.

  • BOPP: two layers of polypropylene stretched biaxially (transversally and longitudinally). Excellent quality and brightness, high resistance and rigidity, ideal for direct contact applications with food and cosmetics as it has no odor or flavors that can be transferred to them. The different layers make the product a barrier against gases and humidity.

SMS:

A fabric (nonwoven) with three layers: one layer of Meltblown sandwiched between two layers of Spunbond.

Strong and durable, fluid and particle barrier, antistatic, mildew resistant, breathable, lightweight, tear and puncture resistant.

Spunlace:

50% pp/50% viscose, soft touch and high permeability, absorbent, durable and lint free. Highly resistant, pleasant and smooth formulation.

Vinyl:

Composed of synthetic polyvinyl chloride resins and non-biodegradable, protein-free plasticizers. Vinyl is a synthetic material.

Perfect for handling food, non-hazardous materials and chemicals.

Nitrile:

Nitrile is made of nitrile-butadiene rubber. Its composition of synthetic rubber, devoid of latex and powder, a comfortable and soft material, ideal for people who are allergic to latex.

Nitrile stands out for its broad resistance to chemical products and biological agents. Nitrile is three times more resistant to punctures than latex.

Especials:

  • Laminates (PP+PE), higher resistance and excellent impermeability.
  • Microporous.  Spreads, TYVEK and other commercial brands.

NATURAL POLYMERS

Cellulose, paper

Cellulose is the substance most frequently found in plant cell walls.

Cellulose is the raw material for paper and natural fiber fabrics. Cellulose is the most abundant organic biomolecule as it forms the majority of terrestrial biomass.

Latex

Natural latex is a colloidal aqueous suspension composed of some fats, waxes and various gummy resins obtained from the cytoplasm of the laticiferous cells present in some angiosperm plants and fungi. It is frequently white, although it can also present orange, reddish or yellowish tones depending on the species, and milky in appearance.

Latex is the most elastic material known. They have their main use in work related to chemical elements and/or requiring cleaning.

Combination of natural and synthetic polymers.

Natural polymers. There are many polymers in nature and the biomolecules that form living beings are polymeric macromolecules. For example, proteins, nucleic acids, polysaccharides (such as cellulose and chitin), rubber or natural rubber, lignin, etc.

Synthetic polymers. Many polymers are obtained industrially from monomers. Examples include nylon, polystyrene, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene, etc. 

Many articles use a mixture of the two types, thus improving their quality.
