Kuwait- KISR obtains glass transition of polymers patent

(MENAFN- Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) KUWAIT, Aug 27 (KUNA) -- The Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR) has registered an unprecedented patent for measurement of glass transition temperatures of polymers.

The US Patent and Trademark Office granted Dr. Salah Al-Enezi of KISR Petroleum Research, a patent for a device that measures the glass transition temperature of polymers and polymeric composite materials using liquid carbon dioxide as a laxative, KISR said in a statement.

This device is one of the latest technological means to understand thermal properties of polymers under standard and high conditions, as these materials may be exposed to a sudden rise in temperature and pressure similar to oil fields and sudden weather changes of aircraft, KISR said.

The invention highlights its importance through the "unprecedented" results recorded by high-accuracy database.

KISR stressed keenness to develop and train Kuwaiti citizens and raise the name of Kuwait high in regional and international forums. (end) mf.nfa.ss
