Hydrophobic Plastics

  1. Jan 4, 2009 #1

    Is someone knowing more about the properties of Epoxy Polymer Plastic as used in Polyester Glass Fiber regarding skimming features as to separate oil from water-oil emulsions?

    Where could I get more specifics. Especially in context with Lanolin oil?

    best regards

    Welcome to PF, Ovacs.
    I'm afraid that I can be of no help to you, but someone who can should be along shortly. I suspect that your question might be a bit vague, although I don't know anything about the subject. I've never heard of Epoxy Polymer Plastic as an entity, whereas both glass fiber and polyester resin are pretty well-known items. I totally don't get the thing about skimming oil from water. :confused:
