Characterization of the structure, acoustic property, thermal conductivity, and mechanical property of highly expanded open-cell polycarbonate foams 

This study was conducted to determine if highly expanded open cell polycarbonate foams (PC) could be used as thermal insulation among other characteristics of the foam. This was accomplished through testing the PC foam with the Transient Plane Source (TPS) method. Multiple relative densities of foam were tested, and it was found that the higher the relative density the higher the thermal conductivity, and vice versa. The lower the relative ...

Glass foams from dismantled cathode ray tubes

Glass components recovered from dismantled cathode ray tubes (CRTs) are very difficult to recycle or reuse and so other methods of using these glass components must be found to prevent environmental problems. Through the mixing of the recovered glass with calcium carbonate powder, glass foams can be synthesized that have applications in thermal and acoustic insulation. The various effects on the sintering process such as heating rate and holding time ...
