Polymers, Ceramics and Composite Materials
Polymers are materials assemble of long, repeating chains of molecules. The materials possess unique properties, depending on the type of molecules existence bonded and how they are bonded. Several polymers bend and stretch such as rubber and polyester. Others are hard and strong like epoxies and glass.
Ceramics are classified as inorganic and nonmetallic materials that are precondition to our daily lifestyle. Ceramic and materials engineers are the people who outline the processes in which these products can be made, create new types of ceramic products, and discover different uses for ceramic products in everyday life.
A composite material is a mixture of two materials with different physical and chemical properties. When they are connected they produce a material which is specialized to do a certain job, for occasion to become stronger, lighter or resistant to electricity. They can also upgrade strength and stiffness. The reason for their use above traditional materials is because they improve the properties of their base m Electrical, Optical, and Magnetic Materials
