Could Our Data Soon Be Stored On Plastic?

Plastics ManufacturingThese days it is truly astounding how much data we can stuff onto external hard drives or even the ubiquitous USB drive. Computer chips are getting smaller and smaller and are able to store greater amounts of information, but it seems that eventually we’ll reach the limit of what is possible with our current materials. An intriguing  article in New Scientist spotlights a scientist named Jean-Francois Lutz working out of the Institute Charles Sadron in Strasbourg, France who has just shown that it is possible to store data on chains of plastic.

Using the idea of DNA as a foundation, Lutz envisions a future where an entire library of information can be stored on numerous short polymer chains. So far, his team has written the term CNRS across six polymers. The acronym CNRS (the French National Center for Scientific Research) across six polymers.

Here at Tru-Form Plastics, we know that plastic is a versatile substance, but this is truly astounding and inspiring!. Plastic will continue to define the future progress of humanity.

Do You Need Your Plastics to Survive the Might of Mother Nature?

Plastics ManufacturingMany plastic pieces get to enjoy the good life, living their days in temperature controlled environments. You would never leave your computer outside during a blizzard or let your precious cell phone bake on a sizzling summer day. However, some plastics are not so lucky. They need to be ready for everything that Mother Nature can throw at them, from frigid temperatures dipping below zero, to hurricane winds, sand storms, and heat that could fry an egg on the sidewalk.

All sorts of plastics need to spend a lot of time in harsh environments, including plastic pieces in cars, streetlamps, outdoor signs, grocery carts, dog houses, and so much more! If you are a manufacturer who needs plastic pieces that can stand up to just about anything, than Tru-Form Plastics is your answer. We can manufacture plastics that won’t crack, melt, or degrade in extreme conditions. These plastics will improve the life of your product and keep your customers happy!

Need Help Designing the Plastic Pieces You Need for Your Next Product?

assembly_fabrication-200You have an idea for your next great product, but turning that vision into reality is going to take some engineering work on your part. You’ll need to figure out how to construct the product’s component parts, which means developing design schematics and materials consultations. When you think about all the different variables that go into designing plastic components alone, it can seem a little, well, overwhelming.

We understand! Not everyone is a natural born engineer or chemist. If you know that you need plastic components for your product but aren’t sure how to create them, we can help. Our engineers are highly talented and can work with you from conception to completion. Tell us your vision, and we can advise on design outlines, material requirements, drafts, undercuts, material selection, and more!
