Effect of hexagonal boron nitride on high-performance polyether ether ketone composites

Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK)/hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) nanocomposites were formed by a planetary ball milling process and hot compression molding in order to determine the effect of the addition of h-BN on the properties of PEEK. In particular, the tensile strength, friction and wear behaviors, morphology, hardness, thermomechanical properties, and thermal conductivity of the nanocomposite were examined. Hexagonal boron nitride was added in filler concentrations of up to 5 wt. %. ...

Effect of dispersion capability of organoclay on cellular structure and physical properties of PMMA/clay nanocomposite foams

The authors prepared PMMA/clay composites by the in situ bulk polymerization method. The prepared composites were characterized by FT-IR, WAXRD, SEM, TEM, DMA and the transient plane source (TPS) technique to measure thermal conductivity. Not only were the thermal properties of the composites studied, but physical and chemical properties as well....

Applications of some thermo-analytical techniques to glasses and polymers

The authors highlight different methods of studying the purity, composition, and structural changes of polymeric and glass materials. These methods include the use of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and the transient plane source (TPS) technique. The quality of the TPS Technique is outlined and the authors praise the high quality of the machine. In addition to this, thermal analysis is carried out on some polymeric composites (cis-polyisoprene (CPI)/trans-polyisoprene (TPI) ...

Latex and two-roll mill processing of thermally-exfoliated graphite oxide/natural rubber nanocomposites

Thermally Exfoliated Graphite Oxide (TEGO) was mixed with natural rubber (NR) using a two-roll mill but the mixing of the TEGO with the NR didn't proceed as expected. Therefore the researchers had to modify the procedure and decided to pre-mix the TEGO and NR in an ultrasonically-assisted latex co-coagulation process followed by two-roll milling resulted in significant improvement in the thermal and electrical properties of the nanocomposite compared to the ...

In situ polymerized nanocomposites: Polystyrene/CNT and Poly(methyl methacrylate)/CNT composites

A series of polymer-matrix composites were synthesized by using a variety of carbon nanotubes (single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs), double-walled carbon nanotubes (DWCNTs) and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs)) and a polymer matrix (either polystyrene (PS) or poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA)). Different surfactants and polymerization methods were also used in order to generate a wide range of different composites. These different composites were all tested for thermal and electrical conductivity and characterized ...
