Technical Article Briefs

Nanocomposite dispersions based on cellulose whiskers and acrylic co-polymer
Ayman Ben Mabrouk, Sami Boufi, December 2010

Addition of methacryloxypropyl triethoxysilane stabilizes the dispersion and favors anchoring of the whiskers onto polymer particles.

Tensile and fatigue properties of a short-fiber-reinforced polyamide-6,6
Pankaj Mallick, November 2010

The effects of melt temperature and hold pressure depend on the fabrication method of injection-molded polymer/fiber composites.

Improving interfacial adhesion of composites with treated fibers
Sreekumar Pa, November 2010

Surface modification of natural fiber using physical or chemical methods can improve the interfacial adhesion of the composites

Simulation of parison shape at pinch-off in blow molding
Yoshiyuki Iemoto, Ryuichi Kawachi, Youhei Fukuzawa, Shuichi Tanoue , Hideki Tomiyama, November 2010

Predictions of the multilayer-parison shape during extrusion blow molding are aided by finite-element calculations.

Organoclays enhance photodegradation of polyethylene film
Walter W. Focke, November 2010

Manganese- and cobalt-based layered double hydroxides intercalated with fatty acids are excellent photodegradation organoclay additives for low-density polyethylene films.

Efficient extruder and slot-die purging
Beth Foederer, November 2010

Cleaning an extrusion system can have many benefits, including quick product changeover, reduced contamination defects, and faster, more successful screw removal.

Using a torque rheometer to characterize flow in poly(vinyl chloride) composites
Gulsen Albayrak Ari, November 2010

An instrument that is basically a batch mixer provides valuable data regarding the processability of polymer micro- and nanomaterials, and is also a useful tool in quality control and product development.

Visco-elastic properties of modified poly(lactic acid)/ spruce-wood-flour composites
Adriana Gregorova , Rupert Wimmer, November 2010

Composite mechanical behavior is critically influenced by interfacial compatibility between the filler and polymer matrix.

Resin pressure inside composite laminates
Zuoguang Zhang, Yanxia Li, Chaobo Xin , Min Li, Yizhuo Gu, November 2010

Resin pressures are uniformly distributed in the through-thickness and in-plane directions during zero-bleeding autoclave processing.

A unique, high-flow, drapable, soft reprocessable material
Ashok Adur, November 2010

A new pelletizable, reprocessable composition can be converted into a nonwoven material or a fabric suitable for spin bonding.

Bilateral stress in resin feed is important for solids conveying
Stephen Derezinski, November 2010

Laboratory measurements of the bilateral stress of resin feed samples show that it is unique to polymer type and form.

Stability of wood/polyvinyl chloride composites under UV-light aging
Napat Pattamasattayasonthi, Kantima Chaochanchaikul, Vichai Rosarpitak, Narongrit Sombatsompop, November 2010

UV light affects the mechanical and structural stability of composite materials, which can be reduced successfully by employing an acrylic protecting layer.

Improving melt processing of thermoplastic polyurethanes
Carlos Arthur Ferreira, Ademir Jose Zattera , Rudinei Fiorio, October 2010

Addition of low-molecular-mass-containing urethane groups leads to both a reduction in intrinsic viscosity and an increase in melt-flow stability.

Freeze-thawed hydrogels for modeling blood vessels
Colin Stanley, Philip Walsh, Austin Coffey, October 2010

Artificial materials that match both the physical dimensions and mechanical properties of biological blood vessels could be useful in biomedical simulation experiments.

Intercalation pathways and mechanical properties of epoxy-clay nanocomposites
Chad Snyder, Mickey Richardson, Jae Hyun Kim, Gale Holmes , Derek Ho, October 2010

Intercalation pathways between galleries impact the strain at failure of epoxy-clay hybrid nanocomposites.

Consolidation and fracture of self-reinforced polypropylene composites
Valeria Pettarin, Ariel Stocchi, Tibor Czigany, Andras Izer, Tamas Barany , Celina Bernal, October 2010

Greater matrix-reinforcement adhesion reduces the number of acoustic-emission events, which also occur nearer to final failure.

Oil-palm fiber as natural reinforcement for polymer composites
Farid Nasir Ani, Aznizam Abu Bakar, Arshad Salema , Azman Hassan, October 2010

The importance of natural fibers as reinforcement or fillers in polymers is increasing, but limitations have prevented them from totally replacing synthetic fibers.

Microcellular injection molding with improved surface quality
Jungjoo Lee, Lih-Sheng Turng, October 2010

Increasing the interfacial mold-polymer temperature by insertion of an insulator layer allows elimination of bubble tracks on the surface before melt solidification.

Mechanical characterization of hydrogel
Allan D. Rogalsky, H. J. Kwon, October 2010

Digital image correlation is a viable approach to noncontact deformation sensing.

Bioplastics and global sustainability
J. N. Swamy, Balaji Singh, October 2010

Application of bioplastics is in its infancy stage but holds significant promise in developing sustainable plastics for the future.
