TechCrunch article Fiber Chemical Modification (FCM) is a new and rapidly evolving technology.
FCM is a technique for creating a new type of polymer that can be used in many other applications.
The goal of FCM, or a new kind of polymer, is to create a substance that’s more durable, flexible and less prone to cracking and tearing.
The process is called polymer-based corrosion control, or PCCL.
FCM is the latest of several technologies that are rapidly moving towards becoming more widespread and affordable.
Fiber Chemical Modifier: The Rise and Fall of Fiber Chemical Modified Polymers article By now, most people have heard of the use of polymer-free plastics, which is why it’s no surprise that people are still experimenting with this technology.
The key to FCM’s popularity is its simplicity, said Rohan Nair, an associate professor of chemistry at the University of California, San Diego.
“It is very inexpensive and can be manufactured in a lab.”
“I don’t think it’s that hard,” said Nair.
In this video, you’ll see how a fiberglass or glass-like material can be modified to be made with a polymer-containing substance.

The problem with using a polymer to make the material is that, because the material has a certain chemical composition, it’s prone to breaking, Nair said.
“Fiber chemical modifications are an emerging technology, so it’s not a new concept,” he added.
