Manufacturers nowadays try to offer the most unique and elegant looking products in this regard. Would you believe that these products are made of plastic at its core, and that they are just coated with metallic substances?
NMP is used in wide range of applications including oil & gas, pharmaceuticals, electronics, paints & coatings, and agrochemicals. It makes itself increasingly useful for the purpose of re-refining the lubricating oil. In addition, it helps in improving the viscosity index and oil performance. This boosts its demand in the oil and gas market. When it comes to electronics, NMP is used for degreasing and cleaning, and as a photoresist stripper, along with being used as solvent in the production of epoxy and polyurethane coatings in printed circuit boards.
PMMA (poly (methyl methacrylate)), commonly known as acrylic, is a transparent thermoplastic that is generally used as a lightweight-shatter-resistant glass alternative. PMMA has various other names such as acrylic glass and plexiglass, and is sold under various brand names such as Plexiglas, Lucite, Perclax, Crylux, Acrylite and Perspex. The material is formed through the polymerization of methyl methacrylate (MMA) monomer. Besides being a glass-alternative, it can also be used as a casting resin, or in coatings and inks.
Coiled tubing is a term that is used frequently in the oil and gas industry, but will definitely sound unfamiliar to common folks. So, what exactly is it? Simply put, it is an electrically welded tube, which is manufactured with one longitudinal seam. The seam is formed by high-frequency induction welding without the addition of filler metal. It is a long pipe spooled on a large reel, and is 1 to 3.25 inch in diameter.
Biochar is a charcoal which is rich in carbon and is formed through thermal decomposition of organic waste in a low oxygen environment. Pyrolysis is a widely used technique to produce it in abundant quantity. Raw materials used for biochar production are easily available and are low in cost, they include plant waste, agricultural residue, wood (wood pellets), and animal manure.
The automotive industry has been experiencing a significant change over the years, and there is an increasing trend towards reduction of automobile weight to improve fuel efficiency. The major raw materials used for plastic production include natural gas, crude oil, coal, cellulose, and salt.
Insect growth regulators (IGRs) act by interrupting the reproductive cycle of an insect. They inhibit the larvae from attaining adult stage. Insects have an external skeleton known as exoskeleton. As the life cycle of the pest advances and reaches the molting stage, a new skeleton develops inside the old exoskeleton, which is shed later. Different types of insect growth regulators act at this stage by releasing a hormone, which prevents the pest from developing further.
Metal foil tapes are thermally conductive and non-conductive flexible strips made up of several metals such as copper, aluminum, lead, carbon steel, tin, and nickel with industrial strength adhesives on one or both sides. They are widely used in efficient cooling and heating jobs involving light & heat reflective and thermally conductive surfaces. They are an excellent flame, moisture, weather, and chemical resistant.
Resins are " solid or highly viscous substance " which change into polymers. They are plant determined or engineered in cause and exist in the blends of natural mixes. Corrosion resistant resins are high-performance specialty polyester and ideal for the manufacture of tanks, pipes, and vessels that contain acids, alkali, fuels, foodstuffs, water, and other demanding material which corrode metals.
The global emulsion polymer market is projected to witness growth at a CAGR of over 5.0 % over the next eight years. Increased demand from various end-use industries is likely to fuel the market growth over the forecast period. Its key applications include paper & paperboard coatings, adhesives, and paints & coatings. Demand for acrylics has been increasing over the past few years which in turn will boost its need in the paints & coatings industry over the forecast period.
Global monochloroacetic acid demand is expected to witness a steady growth mainly on account of increasing pesticide manufacturing in countries including China, Germany, Netherlands, and India. Expanding application base in the end use industries which include petrochemicals, healthcare, personal care, and textile provide lucrative is expected to further growth opportunities in near future.
Agrochemicals are essential components of the agriculture industry. They are used as crop protection chemicals and plant growth regulators that help in increasing yield. Due to the growing population, there is an added pressure on farmers and agricultural organizations to meet food demand in a limited span of time. use Fertilizers gain increasing importance in such situations. Water and land scarcity have resulted in the discovery of new products, such as adjuvants and plant growth regulators, which help in increasing yield.
Marine grease is used to provide high performance for rotating equipment operating in a challenging marine environment. Raw materials used in the production includes base oil (mineral, synthetic, bio-based), thickener and additives. The purpose of this grease is to provide seamless working of vessels during in water transit. The performance of marine grease is determined by National Lubricating Grade Institute (NLGI).
Vacuum grease is used as a sealant in vacuum systems. It has low volatility, which is ideal for providing lubrication for systems working under complex vacuum environment. It is resistant to esters, alkalis and alcohols. It not only provides protection from corrosion and moisture but also reduces mechanical wear and tear.
The use of trivalent chromium finishing in various end-use industries such as automotive, appliance, and architecture is expected to augment market growth over the forecast period. In addition, properties such as excellent wear resistance, corrosion resistance, and low coefficient of friction are expected to boost the market growth.
The global textile chemical market exceeded 9.5 million tons in 2015.
