Fabrication and Characterization of Neat and Nanophased Polyurethane Foam
Yuanxin Zhou, September 2007
In this study 1wt% carbon nanofiber (CNF) and TiO2 nanoparticles have been infused in part A of polyurethane (PUR) foam by ultrasound sonication then mixed with part B of PUR foam by mechanical stirrer. Tensile flexural and compression tests were performed to evaluate mechanical performance of neat and nanophased PUR foams. Experimental results show that CNF reinforced PUR foam exhibit the highest tensile strength flexural strength and compression strength as compared with other PUR Foams.

Direct In-Line Compounding for GMT Applications
Stephen Bowen, September 2007
Long Fiber Reinforced Thermoplastic (LFRT) materials offer superior impact strength and stiffness compared to raditional short fiber reinforced materials. For several decades these specialized compounds have grown in volume and diversity. Initially introduced as LFT (Long Fiber Thermoplastic) pellets the compounds have evolved into D-LFT (Direct Long Fiber Thermoplastics) variants and expanded their process capability to include injection compression and transfer molding.

Applications & Markets for Renewable Resource Based Sheet Molding Compound
Rob Seats, September 2007
Unsaturated polyester resins based on renewable resource raw materials (soy and corn) have been commercially available since the late 1990s. These resins have successfully been formulated into sheet molding compound and are compression molded into parts used by the John Deere Corporation to manufacture farm machinery. This paper will discuss the economics and environmental effects of using renewable resource based composites describe the current applications where the technology is being used and consider the future of bio based technology in the composites industry.

Fiber Length Distribution Measurement for Long Glass & Carbon Fiber Reinforced Injection Molded Thermoplastics
Vlastimil Kunc, September 2007
Procedures for fiber length distribution (FLD) measurement of long fiber reinforced injection molded thermoplastics were refined for glass and carbon fibers. Techniques for sample selection fiber separation digitization and length measurement for both fiber types are described in detail. Quantitative FLD results are provided for glass and carbon reinforced polypropylene samples molded with a nominal original fiber length of 12.7 mm (1/2 in.) using equipment optimized for molding short fiber reinforced thermoplastics.
Development of Natural Fiber Hybrid Composites with Improved Stiffness
P.K. Mallick, September 2007
The use of natural fiber composites is increasing in the automotive industry as well as in other industries. One of the key design issues in many of the applications for which natural fiber composites are considered is the stiffness. In this study we consider combining a natural fiber/polypropylene composite with either directional polypropylene or carbon fibers with the objective of improving the stiffness. Compression molded plates were prepared with various combinations of these materials. Tensile and flexural moduli of the combined materials were determined and are reported in this paper.
