Finding Solutions with Porous Polymers
Passport to Performance: Maximizing Device Capabilities with Sintered Particles
11:00 am (EST), August 27, 2019
One of the types of porous polymers, sintered particle materials are engineered from various polymers with controlled pore sizes to provide outstanding strength, durability, chemical resistance, resiliency, and design flexibility across multiple applications. As with other porous materials such as foams and sponges, sintered particle materials are composed of pores whose cavities are connected to one another, permitting fluidic communication throughout the part.
Global market leaders in the healthcare, consumer, industrial and electronics sectors rely on this type of porous polymer technology to increase functionality, reliability and safety and to optimize product performance. From medical device venting to insecticide wicking, sintered particle technology provides a high degree of customizability and structural strength.
In this webinar, learn about key applications of sintered particles across all six functional areas – absorption, application, diffusion, filtration, wicking, and venting – and how to determine the material and characteristics your application needs.
