Many scientific and manufacturing processes that are still in use are in fact quite dangerous for the human health. However, we sometimes do not realize this fact immediately, or we are “forced” to stick with the methodology since we do not have a better and safer solution. When it comes to PET production, these problems seem to be solved, i.e. we no longer have to use the system that contains a lot of VOC’s (volatile organic compounds), and this can be highly beneficial to all of us, especially for the environment and our entire planet in the end.
What Exactly Is Infusion?
The term infusion can have several meanings, and this concept is present in medicine, alcohol production, and some other areas of human activity as well. However, infusion in the technological sense is predominantly focused on the use of colorants to change the appearances of polymers. What this means is that the process of infusion can easily alter the color of your PET bottles or similar materials, including those that are used for creating lenses and covers.
How The Process Of Infusion Works?
Just like any other manufacturing process, infusion has its particular methodology. However, the thing that makes this method so game-changing is the fact that modifications of the polymer are conducted on a molecular level. In other words, the stability and the resistance of the material are on a superior level, and there will be no more yellowing if the material is exposed to UV rays for an extended period.
Several benefits are connected with the use of this methodology, and most of them focus on the simplicity of the process and the fact that we can now change the colors and the structure of the material in no time. Similarly, another significant advantage of infusion in technology is its Eco-friendly nature, which means that this system uses the minimum amount of organic additives. The aqueous solution that is used as a colorant is recyclable and reusable, and it creates a UV barrier that has a multi-functional role in the molecular structure of the PET material.
