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.
A novel and environmentally friendly pretreatment approach is used for the production of cellulose-rich fibers as reinforcements for thermoplastic-starch-based bioplastics.
A polytetrafluoroethylene matrix, with inherently low friction, is reinforced with carbon nanotubes and fabricated as a surface coating.
Upon radiation exposure, polymer fragmentation causes a sharp degradation in the mechanical and thermal properties of Rohacell foams.
A post-molding stage, in which samples are kept at 105°C, is used to produce semi-crystalline samples in much shorter times than through standard injection into a hot mold.
A simple method is used to fabricate nanohybrids that serve as effective catalysts for the reduction of 4-nitrophenol to 4-aminophenol.
Different surface treatment coatings for the core and cavity, which have distinctive morphologies, can be used to effectively reduce adhesion.
Thermal conductivity and mechanical strength measurements indicate that paper waste sludge particles can be used effectively as fillers in eco-polyol-based foams.
A simplified process for the production of microcellular foams demonstrates that pressurization of nitrogen or carbon dioxide to a supercritical state is unnecessary.
Cellulose from sugarcane bagasse can be used to improve the mechanical and barrier properties of bionanocomposites.
A fully biobased composite material, composed of bamboo fibers and a nanoparticle-reinforced bio-epoxy matrix, exhibits improved mechanical properties.
Enhancing the complex viscosity of polylactic acid/poly(e-caprolactone) blends leads to better foaming behavior and pore microstructure.
The influence of different plasticizer materials on the mechanical properties and storage stability of poly(lactic acid) films is studied.
The filler distribution within micromoldings may be significantly affected by molding conditions, mold geometry, and the selection of polymer matrices.
Sepiolite fibers are incorporated in a simple and practical method to achieve increased tensile strength characteristics and shape fixity ratios of polyurethane composites.
Rheological, optical, mechanical, and thermomechanical investigation of the properties of cellulose-nanofiber-reinforced polylactide demonstrates the solution method for achieving good fiber dispersion.
Exposure to elevated temperatures causes the degradation of the resin matrix and a reduction of bonding strength in composite samples, and thus accelerates the propagation of fatigue damage.
Different nozzle geometries were investigated to find the optimum injection molding strategy for the production of polymer nanoclay composites.
Fully biodegradable polylactic acid/microcrystalline cellulose composites, with surface-modified reinforcing cellulose, are suitable for 3D printing applications.
A new predictive relationship that is based on percolation theory concepts has been verified with tubular flow experiments.
A novel additive manufacturing approach can be used to fabricate samples in any shape and is a promising methodology for the design of microwave-absorbing material structures.
