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.
Ultrasound exposure can speed up the disentanglement of molecular chains during extrusion.
The rheology and morphology of uncompatibilized and reactively compatibilized blends of polytrimethylene terephthalate and ethylene propylene diene monomer correlate strongly.
Use of a reactive compatibilizer and a suitable combination of extrusion parameters extends the high impact strength of poly(butylene terephthalate)/acrylonitrile butadiene styrene blends to very low temperatures.
The recovery and relaxation properties of resistance in silicone-rubber/carbon black composites depend strongly on frequency.
Hyperbranched polyphosphate ester can improve the toughness, flexural and tensile strength, thermal performance, and flame retardance of diglycidyl ether of bisphenol-A epoxy resin.
Nanoclay-filled thermoplastic polyurethane/polypropylene blends with maleic anhydride-grafted polypropylene as compatibilizer exhibit overall best performance in terms of tensile properties.
Linear, low-density polyethylene/fumed-silica nanocomposites show notable enhancements of creep resistance in proportion to the surface area of the incorporated nanofillers.
Numerical simulations of the polymer melt flow during embossing closely match experimental results.
Extrusion of blends of plastic and vulcanized rubber benefits from multivariable model-based predictive control.
A down powder that contains nearly 14 times the specific surface area of down fiber enhances the water-vapor-transmission rate of polyurethane membranes.
The combination of plasticizers and nucleating agents accelerates the crystallization rate of poly(lactic acid).
Improved interfacial adhesion between carbon nanotubes and the polymer results in nanocomposites exhibiting improved wear rates compared to ultrahigh-molecular-weight polyethylene alone.
Understanding the characteristics of wave propagation in laminated plates can aid in advancing nondestructive monitoring of composite structures.
A new high-order theory analyzes the behavior of sandwich panels by taking into account the in-plane normal and shear stresses in their flexible core.
Polymerizing ethylene using a nickel (ÃŽÂ±-diimine) complex and ethylaluminum sesquichloride generates materials with tunable properties.
Intercalating organoclay with glycol-modified polyethylene terephthalate copolyester results in a film that combines good gas-barrier properties with high optical transmittance.
Melt viscosity, measured by capillary rheometry, indicates the degree that exfoliation is improved by adding maleated polyethylene compatibilizers to polyethylene-nanoclay composites.
The properties of vulcanizate/clay nanocomposites can be enhanced by optimizing the microstructure of their elastomer/clay precursors.
Compression force, distance, and speed influence the alignment of glass fibers in five layers in short-fiber-reinforced polypropylene plastic parts.
Nanofiber morphology significantly affects the electrical and mechanical properties of linear, low-density, polyethylene/carbon nanofiber (LLDPE/CNF) composites.
