As plastic raw materials which are easily unraveled, research on Polylactic Acid is a great opportunity for Indonesia researcher
By Satria Ahmad Budiman-Fiber (fiber) is a material that has a comparison between weight and length, as well as having certain properties to the next can be processed into value-added products. The clothes we wear everyday are processed products from cotton fiber. Raincoats and umbrellas that we use to protect themselves from the rain water is also a fiber manufacturing results, namely polyvinyl alcohol (PVA). In fact, a number of components in the automotive industry and any flight utilizing fiber as the raw material of composite products, such as carbon fiber. In science and technology, fiber is the basic ingredient of a product so as to understand the properties of the fibre is very fundamental to design products.
Based on how to acquire it, fiber is classified into two groups, namely natural fibre which is obtained directly from natural and synthetic fibers made from chemical compounds through human expertise. Polyester fibre is the most popular synthetic fibers. The application not only in industrial clothing, but also other sectors of industry. Own polyester made from a reaction between ethylene glycol terephthalate acid and through condensation polymerization. Polyester was later developed by scientists and generate some kind of other fibers as a result of derivatives, including polylactic acid (PLA).
