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.
Recent advances in nanotechnology, particularly for diagnostic, therapeutic, and bone tissue engineering purposes, are discussed.
The synergy obtained by combining supercritical carbon dioxide and superheated water enables polyethersulfone to be processed at significantly lower temperatures than in conventional processes.
Chitosan nanopowders can be electrospun into nanofibers together with a poly(vinyl alcohol) solution to create chitosan-based mats with good blood compatibility.
The addition of carbon nanotubes into a natural rubber/ethylene propylene diene monomer blend enhances the cure characteristics and physical and mechanical properties of the resultant nanocomposites.
A new plate-to-plate isothermal hot embossing method with a low cycle time enables highly uniform microstructures to be introduced in semicrystalline polymers for use in practical devices.
The effects of pin geometry and process parameters on the mechanical properties of samples fabricated via this novel technique are investigated.

Dynamic mechanical analysis and three well-known models were used to investigate the mechanical properties of samples synthesized from recycled poly-ethylene terephthalate.
Polyvinyl alcohol composites containing silicon-carbide particles that were modified by a silane coupling agent achieve enhanced mechanical and wear properties.
Ultrasonic vibration can reduce the size and effectively enhance the uniform dispersion of graphene nanoplatelets during extrusion, thus improving the electrical and thermal network in resultant composites.
Polypyrrole-coated nonwoven polyester fabrics, prepared by in situ chemical polymerization, show promise for heat-generation, electromagnetic interference shielding, and sensing applications.
Surface modifications to palygorskite promote its dispersion within nylon 6, which in turn improves the thermal and mechanical properties of the resultant nanocomposites.
A new method of microinjection molding, based on the use of a flexible insert combined with a porous plate, enables the fast and efficient fabrication of polymer microlens arrays with tunable heights.
Understanding the processing-structure-property relationship of 3D-printed composites reinforced with 2D nanomaterials enables the development of scaffold structures with enhanced performance.
The electrical and mechanical properties of conducting samples, containing various types and concentrations of carbon black fillers, were examined after being subjected to different flexing modes.
A polyimide hollow-fiber membrane trapper with adsorption channels that enables sulfur to be removed from hydrocarbon fuels could provide a sulfur-free hydrogen source for fuel-cell applications.
Adding triblock copolymers to an epoxy resin significantly increases its resistance to fatigue crack propagation (by more than 130) without reducing its glass transition temperature or ductility.
