Technical Article Briefs

Alginate enhances formation of polyaniline-alginate/titanium dioxide nanocomposites
Do Sung Huh, Chitragara Basavaraja, Eun Ae Jo, March 2010

Conductivity measurements show that alginate successfully acts as template to form a composite with improved morphological, thermal, and electrical properties.

Cavitation in high-density polyethylene
Abdesselam Dahoun, David Ruch, Jean Di Martino, Frederic Addiego, Olivier Godard, March 2010

The density of cavities developing in both unfilled and filled polymers decreases from core to skin and is substantially affected by macroscopic stresses.

Ball formation on flow fronts during micro-injection molding
Yeong-Eun Yoo, Kwan-Hee Lee, Sung-Ju Choi, Dae-Jin Kim, Sun Kyoung Kim, March 2010

Under high pressures and at high temperatures, mold flow advances smoothly and continuously, leading to creation and merging of micro-balls that look like teeth on gum.

Metal-oxide-containing polysiloxane enables enhanced conductivity
Jooheon Kim, Hyungu Im, March 2010

Newly synthesized metal/polymer composites exhibit improved electrical and thermal properties.

Multi-objective optimization of injection molding
Julio Viana, Celio Fernandes, Antonio Gaspar-Cunha, Antonio Pontes, February 2010

Automatically defining the values of important process operating conditions results in optimum performance.

Improving the toughness of mica composites
Ming-Rui Meng, Qiang Dou, Lin Li, February 2010

Treating isotactic polypropylene/phlogopite mica with pimelic acid improves the orientation and dispersion of mica plates in the matrix.

Improvements in local mechanical property measurements of polymers
Gunter Moeller, February 2010

Using well-defined indenters and advanced data-analysis methods atomic-force microscopy can achieve accuracies to within 30-40% of those routinely obtained with macroscopic techniques.

Novel damping composite at room temperature
Chifei Wu, Fei Shen, Haiyan Xu, Guohua Hu, Yuanyi Cao, February 2010

The damping performance of hydrogenated nitrile-butadiene rubber greatly improves by incorporating hindered phenol.

All-polymeric photonic bandgap polystyrene/polymethyl methacrylate Bragg fibers
Maksim Skorobogatiy, Karen Stoeffler, Abdellah Ajji, Charles Dubois, February 2010

A novel and efficient method of making waveguides based on alternating polymer layers promises better control of the fabrication process and fewer defects.

Microstructural characteristics of ternary polymer composites
Ayhan Ezdesir, Halil Demirer, Onur Balkan, February 2010

The possible formation pathways of separate and core-shell microstructures of dispersed rigid filler and elastomer particles depend on the elastomer's polarity.

Carbon-epoxy cross-ply cruciform specimens under biaxial loading conditions
Ebrahim Lamkanfi, Wim Van Paepegem, Carla Ramault, Danny Van Hemelrijck, Dimitrios Zarouchas, Andreas Makris, February 2010

3D finite-element damage-model predictions of strain data closely match experimental digital-image-correlation measurements.

Characterizing the cure shrinkage of an epoxy resin in situ
Lolei Khoun, Pascal Hubert, February 2010

A pair of modified rheology and gravimetry techniques successfully measure and describe the evolution of the volumetric effects of an epoxy system during processing.

Adhesion and delamination mechanisms in alternating layered copolymers
Shaoyun Guo, Jiang Li, Genjie Jiang, Qin Du, February 2010

Multilayer coextrusion generates strong adhesion between reactive polyamide and polyethylene layers.

Efficient dispersion of nanoparticles in thermoplastic polymers
Dania Olmos, Javier Gonzalez-Benito, January 2010

High-energy ball milling can efficiently produce polymethyl methacrylate silica and high-density polyethylene titanium dioxide.

Real-time characterization of polymer-chain orientation
Jian Huang, Huimin Sun, Shan Wang, Congmei Lin, Jiang Li, Shaoyun Guo, January 2010

Ultrasound is a powerful tool for monitoring orientation and disorientation behavior of polymer melts during processing.

Polyethylene extrusion at reduced temperatures
Klaus Hornung, Manfred Wagner, Oleg Kulikov, January 2010

Lubricants are feasible as novel processing additives for resins composed of reacting mixtures of polyethylene glycol with citric acid, organophosphites, and thickening agents.

Effects of fillers on the properties of thermoplastic elastomers
Osman G. Ersoy, Nursel Karakaya, Veli Deniz, January 2010

Silica and calcium carbonate are commercially useful as reinforcing agents for producing soft, elastomeric transparent goods and cost-effective filler, respectively.

Ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymers toughen nylon 1010
Wentan Ren, Haiyang Yu, Yong Zhang, December 2009

Successful fabrication of high-toughness nylon with a wide range of vinyl-acetate content offers opportunities for high-performance material design.

Revisiting Boltzmann kinetics in applied rheology
Brian Love, November 2009

The dynamic viscosity of resins undergoing soft gelation shows a marked sigmoidal shape, suggesting that similarly shaped functions might be considered for model predictions.

Tailoring vinyl acetate/acrylic acid copolymers through process optimization
Fabricio Machado, Enrique Luis Lima, Jose Carlos Pinto, November 2009

Successful dynamic control of homogeneous copolymer composition is achieved while allowing for proper design of monomer feed-rate profiles and removal of process disturbances.
