Copolyesters

Copolyester forms when modifications are made to polyesters. Copolyesters retain their strength, clarity, and other mechanical properties even when exposed to a variety of chemicals that typically affect other materials, such as polycarbonates. This, plus their versatility and flexibility, allows manufacturers to use them effectively in the design of both high-volume, low-cost parts as well as critical, more expensive component parts.

Ionomers are transparent polymers and are named because their molecules are "ionically" crosslinked. The ionic bonds can be separated when heated allowing them to be processed and when cooled the ionic bonds return. The ionic crosslinking makes the material very tough and cut resistant. Ionomers are commonly used in Golf Ball Jackets, Flooring, Packaging, and Wire & Cable.

A polyamide is a macromolecule with repeating units linked by amide bonds. Polyamides occur both naturally and artificially. Examples of naturally occurring polyamides are proteins, such as wool and silk. Artificially made polyamides, such as nylons, aramids and sodium poly (asparate) can be made through step-growth polymerization or solid-phase synthesis.
