The Science Inside

Designing More Sustainable Products with Porous Polymers

On-Demand Webinar

Why watch this on-demand webinar

Porous polymers are the little-known science inside many of the products we use every day, providing key functionalities to products as diverse as coloring markers and pregnancy tests.  In this presentation, learn about the various porous polymer technologies – sintered plastics, bonded fiber, and open-cell foam – and how each can be used to design more sustainable products.  More sustainable design options include the use of recycled plastic resins, bio-based polymers, and biodegradable resins instead of single-use plastics.  In addition, porous polymers can impact sustainability through decreased waste creation, increased energy efficiency, or decreased off-gassing of VOCs. 

We will explore how each porous technology can be used to improve absorption, application, diffusion, filtration, venting or wicking inside finished products across different industries.  Achieving increased sustainability requires different technical considerations based on the technology and functionality, and we will explain how best to design with sustainability in mind.

Perfect for design and manufacturing engineers who have a potential design concept for a sustainable product or product packaging, this webinar will explore how the porous polymers can be used to design functional components that increase the sustainability of the overall product while maintaining optimum performance.  

What you will learn in this webinar:

  • Learn the science behind different types of filtration and how each type is used in various applications
  • Understand how various materials and technologies can be used to help filter gases, liquids or other substances
  • See the technology in action in specific application examples
