Technical Article Briefs
New leather- and rubber-waste composites for use in footwear
A sustainable solution for hazardous waste from roughing and carding processes generates nontoxic rubber composites for use in shoe soles.
Operating window for peeling polyimide film
Modified models for predicting steady peeling of polymer thin film and the onset of peeling defects help set the boundaries of a stable operating domain.
Interaction of normal and shear stresses in an epoxy polymer
Superimposed cyclic tension or shear stress increases time-dependent deformation, while constant stress accelerates accumulation of ratcheting strain in cyclic tension or shear loading.
Blending sequence effects on rheological properties of ternary composites
The differing compatibilities of organoclay, thermotropic liquid crystalline polymer, and polyethylene produce a range of structural and flow behaviors in their blended forms.
Synthesis and application of a novel intumescent flame retardant
A single-component additive in polypropylene not only enhances flame retardancy, but also creates a char that helps to prevent dripping.
Modifying asphalt with varying levels of polyethylene additives
Polyethylene added to asphalt in different amounts alters the rutting properties of the blend at higher temperatures and frequency loading, but generally does not significantly improve elastic resilience.
Using low-cost waste for polyhydroxybutyrate bioplastics
Biopolymer-based composites reinforced with a byproduct of coconut-fiber processing were made successfully using compression molding.
Effect of metal cations on the dielectric properties of polyaniline
Doped polyaniline composites exhibit dielectric behavior that depends on the temperature as well as the doping levels of Cu!sup!2+!/sup! and Zn!sup!2+!/sup!.
Scalable route to well-dispersed polyolefin/carbon nanotube composites
The initial step in blending polypropylene with unmodified and surface-functionalized single-walled carbon nanotubes has a significant effect on final dispersion and thermal properties.
Characterization of poly(deamino-tyr-tyr carbonate hexyl ester)
A class of poly(amino acids) often used in medical and pharmaceutical applications forms potentially useful extended associations above a critical concentration.
Effect of peroxides on properties of thermoplastic vulcanizates
A peroxide curing agent that provides a high degree of crosslinking results in a material with low wear.
Turkish huntite/hydromagnesite mineral as a flame retardant in plastics
Increasing the mineral content of a polymer composite and decreasing the particle size of the additive improves protection against fire.
Integrated strategy for multifunctional hybrid nanocomposites
Ultrasonochemistry and evaporation-induced self-assembly can achieve fabrication of uniformly distributed, high-concentration multiform nanostructures.
Microcellular processing of biobased, biodegradable polymer blends
Using microcellular injection molding to prepare renewable polymer composites could lead to components with lower cost, improved material properties, and an extended range of applications.
Nanocomposite thermomechanical and barrier-property enhancements
UV curing enables fabrication of nanostructured epoxy/clay coatings that exhibit improved packaging properties.
Surface infusion of gold nanoparticles into processed thermoplastics
A new nanoinfusion technique produces stable dispersions of metallic particles in melt-processed plastic articles.
Stressed by lasers
Residual stresses during quasi-simultaneous laser-transmission welding of thermoplastics are minimized at relatively high laser powers, low joining pressures, and high scanning rates.
Nanocomposite crystallization during injection molding
A novel optical system inserted into a cavity mold can accurately monitor crystallization kinetics of nanopolymers with high repeatability.
Inspection model assists in correcting injection defects
Defect-behavior tendency curves improve injection-process effectiveness and quality control.
Improved properties of ternary polymer/filler composites
A polymer matrix containing two inorganic fillers exhibits significantly enhanced mechanical and thermodynamic properties compared with both pure high-density polyethylene and binary composites.
