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 refractive index matching approach can be used to develop transparent/translucent materials with improved impact strength and transmittance properties.
Mechanical treatment, with the use of a Supermasscolloider, of sugar cane bagasse significantly improves the mechanical and thermal characteristics of composites made with this material.
Spent coffee ground particles are treated with a fatty acid derivative in a novel hydrophobic method that improves particle dispersion and impact properties.
The size distribution of titanium dioxide pigment particles affects the whiteness they impart to a plastic article.
A new microcellular injection process that uses gas counter pressure and movement of the core-back mold results in low-density polypropylene parts with well-controlled cellular structures.
A new optimization approach combines the use of fiber-reinforced materials, laying and stacking design methods, as well as integrated forming and injection molding processes.

In addition to their reinforcing potential, nanoparticles may affect properties indirectly by acting on the polymer matrix of a nanocomposite, in particular through nucleation and interparticle confinement.
The mechanical properties and stability of cellulose-fiber-reinforced polyamide-6 can be improved by carefully controlling processing properties, employing a lubricant, and using high-lignin-content fibers.
The easy dispersion and high flexibility of crumpled multi-layer graphene permit a novel manufacturing approach for nanocomposite materials.
Novel glass-fiber-reinforced compound solutions enable high adhesion between metal and plastic, improved mechanical properties, superior chemical resistance, and desirable aesthetics for consumer electronics.
The addition of iron oxide pigments to wood-plastic composites results in an increase in the flexural strength and moduli they exhibit after hygrothermal aging tests.
