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.
An isocyanate surface treatment of flax fibers produces improved interfacial interactions of the fibers with the polymer matrix, and thus stronger eco-composites.
Functionalizing graphene oxide with steric acid increases its compatibility with poly(lactic acid), leading to improved tensile strength composites.
An innovative ultrasonic twin-screw extruder with different screw designs is applied to improve the dispersion efficiency of carbon nanotubes in polypropylene.
A new kind of carbon nanofiller can be used to achieve improved mechanical properties, such as apparent density, tensile strength, and elongation at break, of the modified materials.
A shaping process that works with gas pressure instead of matched dies, and without diaphragms, improves the distribution of wall thickness in formed thermoplastic composite parts.
The essential work of fracture concept was used to study the effect of nanoclay on the plain-strain fracturing of pristine and recycled blends.
An in-depth study of polylactide nanocomposite molecular characteristics demonstrates that selecting appropriate organoclays for each polylactide grade is a key issue.
Preferential localization of multiwall carbon nanotubes at the polyamide interface gives rise to a high aspect ratio that can be maintained after processing, even at low filler contents.
Multifunctional, chemically and physically reactive polymer blends are used as electrical conductive sites to fabricate self-assembled nanofiber structures.

Physical and mechanical measurements of novel coir/polyester and coir-glass/fiber sandwich structures, with woven glass fiber roving skins, are presented.
The 3D morphology of nanoparticles prepared from switchgrass is quantitatively and statistically characterized.
The incorporation of nanocellulose in poly(vinyl alcohol)/polyacrylamide blends provides significant improvement to mechanical properties, but has no affect on thermal stability.
Metering, melting, and solid conveying are considered in an experimentally verified simulation approach for the calculation of melting, pressure, temperature, and fill factor profiles.
Polypyrrole-coated peach palm fibers can be used within a polyurethane matrix to achieve a good level of electrical conductivity and high electromagnetic interference shielding effectiveness.
Two novel phosphorus-containing reactive flame retardants were synthesized and incorporated into unsaturated polyester to enhance its thermal stability and flame retardancy.
A new approach, based on angle measurements in simple unidirectional tests, reduces the time, samples, and costs required for determination of material parameters such as textile permeability.
