Surface Properties & Enhancements
Introduction to Fluoropolymers.
S. Ebnesajjad (FluoroConsultants Group, LLC)
This article reviews the structures, syntheses, and chemical/physical properties of many different types of fluoropolymers, e.g. tetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and ethelyene tetradloroethylene (ETFE).
Introduction to Silicone Chemistry.
This article discusses briefly the different types of silicone polymers, and how they are synthesized.
Silicones in Medical Applications.
This article discusses in detail the chemical/physical properties (e.g., very low surface energy) of silicone polymers, and why these properties enable utility in pharmaceutical applications.
Silicones in Coatings.
This article discusses in general the reasons that the properties of silicone polymers make them suitable for coatings applications.
Surface Tension of Polymers.
Utility of fluoropolymers and siloxane polymers in the pharmaceutical industry is based in large part on low surface tensions. This presentation reviews the fundamental science of surface tension.
