Incorporating contaminated leather waste into natural rubber improves the rubber's mechanical properties and avoids improper disposal of toxins.
High-shear-rate capillary rheology of polymer melts
Investigation into the high-shear-rate rheology of polystyrene, polypropylene, and linear low-density polyethylene melts yields their true viscosities and sheds light on their rheological behavior.
Improving the miscibility of polymer blends with nanoclays
Nanoclays are unique additives for polymer blends that not only reinforce them as nanofillers but also act as compatibilizers.
