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.
Various processing methods are tested to examine the resulting properties of nanocomposites composed of clay and polyvinyl chloride.
Melt-spinning can develop new nylon-6-based nanocomposite fibers with promising properties, such as improved tensile modulus.
Polybutylene terephthalate nanofiber diameter distribution in the cellulose acetate butyrate dispersed phase is a function of viscosity ratio, blend ratio, and shear rate.
Microcellular injection molding can be used to fabricate lightweight, tough, and cost-effective biodegradable polymer composites.
The reaction order and rate constant for the crosslinking of natural rubber have been determined by modeling and compared to experimental results.
A new catalyst complex enables a precursor polymer nanocomposite to yield a high-molecular-weight, highly crystalline poly(lactic acid)-clay nanocomposite through solid-state polymerization.
Atomic force microscopy and theoretical modeling were combined to measure Young's modulus of a thin (<100nm) polymeric film.
