Polymer composites

  1. 1. Polymer Composites (Construction Materials)By:-Kartikeya PandeySAP ID :- 500021353
  2. 2. PolymerRaisin 1 Polymer CompositesPolymerRaisin 2/ Fillers
  3. 3. Polymer Composites Natural Fibre Bio FibreComposites Composites Composites
  4. 4. Fibre Composites Under investigation since the 1960’s repair of existing structures Bonds well, Easy to shape, enhancement of strength, Low stiffness, Durability. Rehabilitation & retrofit. replacement for steel. • fibre reinforced polymer
  5. 5. Combine plant-derived fibres with a plastic binderWood, sisal, hemp, coconut, cotton, flax, jute, abaca, bananaleafLight weight, low-energy production and sequestration ofcarbon dioxideSemi-skilled indigenous workersRemoves concern about the potential of lung disease by glassfibre
  6. 6.  formed by a matrix (resin) and a reinforcement of natural fibres. environment-friendly biodegradable composites to biomedical composites. Characterised by the petrochemical resin replaced by a vegetable , animal resin or the bolsters (fiberglass, carbon fibre or talc) are replaced by natural fibre (wood fibres, hemp, flax, sisal, jute...)
  7. 7.  Lack of designers experienced Processes  Analytical hierarchical process  Whole of life process Cost  Short Term Cost  Direct costs  Fabrication Cost  Costing of fibre
  8. 8. Specifications Specific strength and specific stiffness Low stiffness Tailorable mechanical properties Durability Better Durability Lower maintenance costs Non-critical applications such as baths and vanities.
  9. 9. Present Scenario Largest Consumer is Construction Industry. High use in Non-load bearing applications. Reinforced polymer composites (RPCs) (LOAD BEARING APPLICATIONS) Rehabilitation and Retrofit Less Environmental Hazardous (no resources)
  10. 10.  Enormous Effort to migrate to polymer composites. Cradle to the Cradle approach Increase use of natural fibres(diversify). Does not cause pollution. Environmental sustainability.  Non-renewable natural resources and lower embodied energy are safe.
  11. 11. THANK YOU &HAPPY TEACHERS DAY
