How to Make a Polystyrene Fabric that’s 100% Water-Treated
TechCrunch article We have been experimenting with polystyrene fabric for some time now, and we’re excited to announce that we’ve made our first fabric that is 100% water-treated.
It’s a great product for manufacturing and for industrial use, but there’s a lot more to this fabric than meets the eye.
The polystyrenes used in our fabric are made from a polymer that’s also a water-soluble carbon, called polyethylenes.
The polymer bonds with water, which causes it to be able to break down into hydrogen, and it can then be used as a source of energy.
But, as we’re not able to find a good way to water-strip the polyethylenes, we decided to start with a new approach: making the fabric with polyethyleneglycol, a carbon-based polymer that is water-resistant.
Polyethyleneglysol, or PEg, is an excellent solvent for water-treatment because it can be used to thin a polyethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (PEMA) to the consistency of paper.
It also can be mixed with water and mixed with other materials for water treatment, like polyurethane, which has a high melting point.
As a result, PEg can be made with only one ingredient—the polyethylylene.
To do this, we first added a polymer to the polypropylene mix, and then added a water solution.
We then mixed the PEg with water to make a polymer.
The resulting polymer was water-stable and able to bond to the water molecules, forming a bond that prevented it from breaking down into water.
It was even able to bind to the oxygen atoms of the water, forming the hydrogen bonds that were the cause of the polymer’s high melting points.
We’ve been working with Polyester for many years, and in that time we’ve created some fantastic polymers, but Polyethylene has been our go-to material for many decades.
Our first step was to make sure the polystyrexene we used could be water-repellent and also be water and PEg-free.
We found that the polyester polymer did a good job of both, and the water-reducing properties were just amazing.
The material is great for manufacturing, but it’s also excellent for use in a wide variety of industries, including in plastics, ceramics, textiles, and more.
