What is THERMOPLASTIC ELASTOMER? What does THERMOPLASTIC ELASTOMER mean? THERMOPLASTIC ELASTOMER meaning - THERMOPLASTIC ELASTOMER definition - THERMOPLASTIC ELASTOMER explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), sometimes referred to as thermoplastic rubbers, are a class of copolymers or a physical mix of polymers (usually a plastic and a rubber) which consist of materials with both thermoplastic and elastomeric properties. While most elastomers are thermosets, thermoplastics are in contrast relatively easy to use in manufacturing, for example, by injection molding. Thermoplastic elastomers show advantages typical of both rubbery materials and plastic materials. The benefit of using thermoplastic elastomers is the ability to stretch to moderate elongations and return to its near original shape creating a longer life and better physical range than other materials. The principal difference between thermoset elastomers and thermoplastic elastomers is the type of cross-linking bond in their structures. In fact, crosslinking is a critical structural factor which imparts high elastic properties. It was not until the 1950s, when thermoplastic polyurethane polymers became available, that TPE became a commercial reality. During the 1960s styrene block copolymer became available, and in the 1970s a wide range of TPEs came on the scene. The worldwide usage of TPEs (680,000 tons/year in 1990) is growing at about nine percent per year. The styrene-butadiene materials possess a two-phase microstructure due to incompatibility between the polystyrene and polybutadiene blocks, the former separating into spheres or rods depending on the exact composition. With low polystyrene content, the material is elastomeric with the properties of the polybutadiene predominating. Generally they offer a much wider range of properties than conventional cross-linked rubbers because the composition can vary to suit customer needs. Block copolymers are interesting because they can "microphase separate" to form periodic nanostructures, as in the styrene-butadiene-styrene block copolymer shown at right. The polymer is known as Kraton and is used for shoe soles and adhesives. Owing to the microfine structure, the transmission electron microscope or TEM was needed to examine the structure. The butadiene matrix was stained with osmium tetroxide to provide contrast in the image. The material was made by living polymerization so that the blocks are almost monodisperse, so helping to create a very regular microstructure. The molecular weight of the polystyrene blocks in the main picture is 102,000; the inset picture has a molecular weight of 91,000, producing slightly smaller domains. The spacing between domains has been confirmed by small-angle X-ray scattering, a technique which gives information about microstructure. Since most polymers are incompatible with one another, forming a block polymer will usually result in phase separation, and the principle has been widely exploited since the introduction of the SBS block polymers, especially where one of the block is highly crystalline. One exception to the rule of incompatibility is the material Noryl, where polystyrene and polyphenylene oxide or PPO form a continuous blend with one another. Other TPEs have crystalline domains where one kind of block co-crystallizes with other block in adjacent chains, such as in copolyester rubbers, achieving the same effect as in the SBS block polymers. Depending on the block length, the domains are generally more stable than the latter owing to the higher crystal melting point. That point determines the processing temperatures needed to shape the material, as well as the ultimate service use temperatures of the product. Such materials include Hytrel, a polyester-polyether copolymer and Pebax, a nylon or polyamide-polyether copolymer.

Education Session 5 - Cyber Crisis Management Plans: Lessons from Disaster Recoveries Speaker Panel: Mike Wyatt, Director, Deloitte Linus Akanoh, Senior Manager, Deloitte Stacey Larsen, Senior Manager, Deloitte Russell Jones, Partner, Deloitte Description: How do we return to normal operations as soon as possible? How do we manage the fall-out? This session will present how to proactively build a Cyber Incident Response Plan leveraging lessons from Disaster Recoveries for organizational structure, identifying responsive enablers, and a comprehensive communications plan. Key topics to be covered include leveraging an information management framework, and decision making processes based on optimal action plans for potential scenarios. The objective is to ensure all of the right regulations and standards are addressed and developed in accordance to a realistic budget based on security and legal requirements. Expected Outcome: We will explore a lessons from disaster recovery incidents and models that provide a cyber crisis response cycle that coordinates the public and private sectors to respond to events that may involve critical infrastructure and key resources. Intended Audience: CIOs, ISOs, SOC personnel, CERT Teams, Communications Teams, California Office of Emergency Services (COES), California Emergency Management Agency, Cal Fire, California Geological Survey, California Natural Resources Agency, CDPH, OTECH This video was filmed at the Sept 28 & 29, 2015 Cyber Security Symposium in Sacramento, CA If you would like information on any future PSP Forums, please visit our event site at www.pspinfo.us Contact Information: Russ Hicks, President Public Sector Partners, Inc. email@example.com
In recognition of "National Heart Month," in February, this webinar focuses on how safety net providers can utilize health information technology (HIT) to improve health outcomes in patients with hypertension. Hypertension is a significant risk factor that contributes to major health complications, including cardiovascular disease, a leading cause of death in the United States. Hypertension control is a core clinical quality measure in the Meaningful Use incentive program and also a priority within the National Quality Strategy, Healthy People 2020, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' "Million Hearts" campaign. Presenters for this webinar are safety net providers from rural inpatient and community health center settings, who will share their best practices for helping patients control their hypertension.
