Plastics from Bakelite to Nanotechnology

I am old enough to remember the pioneering days of plastics. Bakelite sticks in my mind. A solid, fragile plastic always brown and molded into some art-deco form to encase the valves and wires of a post war radio set.

"IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE that one can combine two unlikely substances like carbolic acid and formaldehyde to produce a beautiful and versatile substance such as phenolic resin or "Bakelite," a revolutionary, non-flammable, early plastic. "The material of a thousand uses," as it was called, made a splash in the 1920s, '30s and '40s.

Around the turn of the century, the Belgian born scientist Dr. Leo Baekeland, working as an independent chemist, came upon the compound quite by accident. Anyone familiar with the newspaper printing business is aware of the Velox used as a proof; that was his first discovery. Velox was invented in 1899 and is still in use today. After selling the rights to this product to Eastman Kodak for three quarters of a million dollars, he started developing a less flammable bowling alley floor shellac; bowling was becoming the latest rage in New York City. Dr. Baekeland soon realized that a resin that was both insoluable and infusible could have a much wider appeal when used as a molding compound. He obtained a patent and started the Bakelite Corporation around 1910" 

Now they are making Bakelite jewelry. What next?

Nylon, a fragile and precious commodity that fueled my Mom's business, she had a corner shop selling no end of stuff. Clothes, toys and of course Nylons. Nylon stockings in different lengths, different colours and derniers. I rued the day they introduced a new product. A new product made of some nylon fabric - tights. Wrist breakers we used to call them - but that's another story.

Pop - soda for our American friends came in glass bottles. Recycling was unheard of. Well the word recycling was not used. Cycling was important for my business though. I would cycle around my neighbourhood collecting used pop bottles and return them to the shop of origin. I got two or three pennies for each bottle. As a kid I was saddened the day they introduced plastic bottles. I was out of business at the tender age of nine.

I was reminded of this a few days ago when an American businessman contacted me. He was looking for plastic factories, any plastic companies. He explained that the factories had waste plastic material, scrap plastic, that he wanted to buy by the container load and ship out to be re-used in whatever venture he had in mind.

A chance to get even after my childhood business went bust. Glass recycling to plastic recycling and I don't have to cycle round the neighbourhood any more.

I am told that War was the prime motivator for the development of plastics. Stronger, lighter more durable materials to outfit our fighting forces. Never could imagine our troops dressed in Nylon stockings. However I am told that the best commandos and special forces wear Nylon tights to the chill out of the privates.

So is it the military that is still the prime mover or the consumer who demand better, more flexible and more durable plastic products. In my twilight years a new development is emerging - Nanotechnology. I am just learning about this so forgive me if I have the wrong idea. Micro machines made from plastic woven into fabrics that encase your body. Thinking, self replicating plastic micro robots. No more itching a flea in your pants. Oh sorry I got a robot in my pants!!!
