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.
Heat treating carbon nanofibers improves their electrical conductivity, which in turn increases the electromagnetic shielding effectiveness of their linear low-density polyethylene nanocomposites.
The measurement of the engineering properties of nanocomposites provides information about the average degree of graphene filler dispersion.
A new computational design optimization scheme applied to a complex unplasticized-polyvinyl chloride window profile die delivers high-quality design while truncating design time by 85%.
Naturally-occurring antioxidant compounds can improve the thermal resistance of a bio-composite, increasing the degradation temperature of the material by as much as 130%.
Solution mixing of a graphene oxide filler with chlorinated polyethylene compatibilizers, followed by melt mixing of the masterbatch with high-density polyethylene, generated graphene-based nanocomposites.
The volume fraction of constrained polymer regions correlates with a reduction in permeability.
Understanding adhesion between polymer and alumina helps scale up atomic layer deposition production processes.
A supercritical carbon dioxide green technique was used to disperse entangled carbon nanotubes and led to improved mechanical properties in a carbon nanotube/polymer composite.
Purely ß-polymorph poly(vinylidene fluoride) nanocomposite films with improved tensile properties were prepared using polyvinylpyrroli- done-coated multi-walled carbon nanotubes as nanofillers.
