Some materials and substances are made from many small but identical units which are combined to produce the parent material. Materials of this nature are widely used in different areas and in industries to make other stronger materials. Coatings, adhesives and sealants can be made from this materials and also can be used in making encapsulations for other materials among other applications.
Coating for elements like metal, wood concrete and ceramics can be manufactured from the polymers which have excellent coating capabilities. Being flexible possible to elongate makes them great to use as coats for flexible or rigid surfaces. Chemicals and conditions like abrasion and corrosion have no effect on these materials which makes them long lasting and good for coating.
The materials also bond polyurethane to materials like metal and wood quite easily as the polyurethane is not known to bond with other materials. They create strong bonds which make them suitable for this purpose and they can be used on many surfaces with ease. Foams made from these material are applied in areas like flotation devices, making car seats and others to carve.
The soft properties of this material makes it good to be used as a safety material in areas like helicopter landing pads and on surfaces for heavy machines. Areas requiring high visibilities are marked using these materials because they reflect light better and are also good in absorbing impact. Polymers are used as additives for other materials due to the ability to give advantages while also not making the materials less effective or efficient. They improve the durability of the materials by being resistant to chemicals, heat and other conditions that may damage other materials.
Fragile elements such as electric wires that need to be isolated from certain things are encapsulated using the polymers which seal the wires. Fresh or salty water does not affect the polymers making it possible to pass electric wires through water when encapsulated using the polymers. The materials make moldings that absorb impact or shock and additionally resist certain chemicals and weather conditions. The properties of absorbing impact makes them suitable for places like helicopter landing pads and in boats to make their safety pads.
They are also used for making mold rubber since they are strong and durable making them last longer on the surfaces. They can be used to make coatings for flexible surfaces and making bumpers or in industries such as oil industries since they are not easily worn out. Properties shown by polymers make it possible to use them in nearly every area existing.
