Polymers and Resins

Polymers are synthetic long-chain compounds that act as the building blocks of the chemical industry. These are mainly derived from one or more monomers such as styrene, vinyl chloride, propylene, and ethylene, which are made up of repeating structural units of monomers bonded to each other with covalent bonds. There are two types of polymers: addition polymers and condensation polymers. Resins are available in both synthetic and natural organic compounds, comprising mainly viscous and non-crystalline liquids. Further, the synthetic resins are used as monomers to form a polymer. As synthetic resins are more stable and uniform as compared to natural resins, and are mainly used to manufacture plastics, paints, and many other products.

In recent past, the polymers & resins industry witnessed remarkable growth, as it replaced conventional materials such as metals, glass, and wood due to their lightweight, superior strength and design flexibility, along with low cost. The construction or building, consumer or institutional, transportation, electrical or electronic, and furniture or furnishing are the key end-use industries uses polymer resins in various applications such as automotive trim and parts, electronic storage media, appliance parts, bags, wrap, bottles, drums and containers, toys, pipe, siding, fishing line, carpeting, wire and cable, medical disposables, egg cartons, insulation, and various other applications.

Polymers are processed through various types of techniques namely extrusion, injection moulding, blow moulding and rotomoulding. Demand for engineering polymers & resins is increasing, as it is a subset of thermoplastic polymers that have high-performance mechanical, thermal, electrical and chemical properties. Increasing R&D activities and rising technological advancements in the development of polymers to improve the properties, and processes at low prices for various applications is positively impacting the polymer and resin industry.
