The SPE Library contains thousands of papers, presentations, journal briefs and recorded webinars from the best minds in the Plastics Industry. Spanning almost two decades, this collection of published research and development work in polymer science and plastics technology is a wealth of knowledge and information for anyone involved in plastics.
A new modeling method enables a kinetic interpretation of the complicated multistep thermal degradation mechanisms in polymer composites.
Introducing a fibrillar morphology into a polymer blend enhances the adsorption and mechanical strength of the resultant composite.
Direct fiber feeding injection molding is an effective way of improving the mechanical properties of polymer/short fiber composites by enhancing the fiber length.
Simulations of the injection-molding process for long-fiber-reinforced thermoplastics enable the prediction of complex fiber behavior and can therefore be used to investigate the effect of screw type.
Investigation of carbon-fiber-reinforced epoxy laminates shows that their viscoelastic behavior depends on both fiber orientation and creep performance.
Calculating different cooling rates for injection-molded polyamide 11 enables successful prediction of crystal polymorph details in actual molded parts.
Organo-modified magnetic nanoparticles can be evenly dispersed within a fluoropolymer matrix by melt compounding for the development of transparent, heat-resistant, flexible nanocomposite films.
The crosslinker used in the preparation of a poly(hydroxamic acid) hydrogel has a greater effect on its dye-sorbent properties (i.e., the removal efficiency) than does the type of dye.
Polyethersulfone modified by UV-induced grafting and then combined with poly(trimethoxysilyl)propyl methacrylate results in a hybrid material suitable for heat-resistant applications in homes and industries.
Incorporation of carbon black nanofillers into castor oil polyurethane improves the electrical conductivity of the materials, through a thermally activated process.
Microcellular polypropylene films can be used to produce piezoelectric materials with improved properties, capacitance, and stored energy capacity.
Polymer nanocomposite papers produced through a novel approach exhibit high flexibility, improved thermal stability, and easy processability, and can thus be used in a variety of technical applications.
The viscoelastic properties and stability of hybrid gels, synthesized via in situ polymerization, are improved upon addition of magnesium-aluminum layered double hydroxide.
Novel injection molding technology can reduce the level of fiber breakage during processing and the degree of fiber alignment along the flow direction.
The viscoelastic behavior of polymer melt is a significant factor during rheological characterization and should be taken into account during analysis and viscosity modeling.
Replacing natural fiber mats with short wood fibers in acrylic resin biocomposites reduces the associated production cost and cycle time.
The electromagnetic interference shielding effectiveness of polymer composites filled with nanostructured carbon materials depends on electrical conductivity, morphology, aspect ratio, and filler dispersion.
A dimensionless volumetric flow rate is found to be a critical parameter for understanding the microstructure and subsequent mechanical properties of 3D-printed composites.
