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.
Dedicated software makes it possible to predict the change in the intrinsic viscosity of starch.
A new phase-morphology development explains significant viscosity and birefringence drops following melt processing.
Experimental testing of five processing and two geometric factors shows that barrel temperature and injection velocity have significant effects on the quality of polymer microstructures.
The melt-flow rate during production of nanoscale polymer fibers is most important in determining average fiber diameters and standard deviations, followed by the operating voltage.
A new type of plasticizer can be chemically linked to the polymer chain.
In injection molding of polypropylene, extensional deformation at the advancing flow front causes high birefringence near the surface.
Matrix modification through carbonization at different temperatures significantly improves some properties of precursor phenolic-carbon-fabric and their associated carbon-carbon composites.
A new self-assembly approach produces poly(acrylonitrile-co-vinyl acetate)/silver composite microspheres that exhibit excellent catalysis.
Nanocomposites containing graphite nanosheets exhibit a very low percolation threshold and significantly enhanced mechanical and processing properties compared with those containing carbon black.
Numerical simulations enable prediction of the properties of polymer transparencies that are thermoformed near their relevant glass-transition temperature.
The impact and modulus of polypropylene reinforced with nanocalcium carbonate correlate with morphology, filler level, and the effect of recycling on the resin matrix.
Combining nucleation agents and plasticizers enhances the material's crystallization rate and could extend its range of applications.
Hydrolysis during cure can adversely affect localized mechanical and thermal performance, assessment of which is critical to evaluate material risks.
A new method of removing chlorine from an everyday waste plastic promises to increase the amount of recyclable material.
Colorimetry and Fourier-transform IR spectroscopy can be used to assess the impact of organic-calcium-complex stabilizers and organotins on initial color stability and photo-oxidation.
The dominant rubbery state in high-molecular-weight thermoplastic elastomers leads to a lack of adhesion and a plug flow.
Application of open-mesh epoxy composites enables modifications to their elastic behavior.
The heterogeneity of polymer matrix composites with conductive inclusions leads to a multiparameter dependence of their electrical behavior.
The surface quality of injection-molded parts can be improved significantly (and warpage reduced) by a proper choice of material dimensions.
Adding an ionomer to polymer blends containing a poly(amino ether) resin leads to improved structure and enhanced elongation at break and impact strength.
