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.
Hydrolytic degradation and elongation properties of polylactic acid can be enhanced by blending with polyhydroxybutyrate.
The formation and evolution of phase structures of polymer blends during molten mixing and different heat-treatment processes is adequately described by fractal behavior.
Simultaneous polymerization enables synthesis of interpenetrating polymer networks.
The average free-volume size, determined by positron-annihilation lifetime spectroscopy, is anticorrelated with the mechanical properties of polymer composites containing particulate fillers.
High crystallization temperatures and a slow cooling rate are optimal conditions for ß-type content in polypropylene/polyamide-6 blends.
Gas-phase polymerization of olefins at early times favors development of abrupt particle breakup, resulting in particle cracking even at very low polymer yields.
Surface modification of ceramic oxide filler reduces polymer melt viscosity and friction while enhancing tensile modulus.
Variations in molecular weight of poly(ether ether ketone) significantly alter its processing behavior, product properties, and performance.
Samples containing 13% by weight of the resin exhibit significantly enhanced mechanical properties compared to those without.
Gel-permeation chromatography linked to an IR detector can be used to reliably determine co-polymer compositions as an alternative to carbon nuclear-magnetic resonance.
Exposure of plasticized polymers to natural ageing exhibits hardness and tensile-strength degradation, particularly in the presence of both nitrogen dioxide and ozone.
Laminated organic-inorganic composites represent a valuable bioroute to designing materials with excellent mechanical properties.
A high-pressure sliding-plate rheometer provides an attractive alternative to conventional instruments for measuring the impact of pressure and dissolved gases on polymer behavior.
In situ precipitated titanium dioxide nanoparticles improve the physical properties of polymer composites.
An improved extrusion technique for polyvinyl chloride regrind could be useful to manufacturers, builders, and architects.
Finding the right extrusion screw is critical in avoiding molding faults and, accordingly, it merits careful preparation.
Bicontinuous aqueous micro-emulsions exhibiting Newtonian behavior and low viscosity are suitable for silver-nanoparticle synthesis.
A CCD camera can be used to study the extrusion-die exit of n-butane-blown polymethyl methacrylate foams.
The solubility of supercritical carbon dioxide in potato starch is in the characteristic range of typical synthetic polymers.
A combination of quick quenching and suitable heat treatment can improve the transparency of polypropylene extrusion sheets.
