Thermal Composites of Biobased Polyamide with Boron Nitride Micro Networks

In this paper, polyamide (PA, composed of at least 60% renewable materials) was used as a polymer matrix to prepare PA-hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) polymer composites with varying hBN contents. Two different PA samples were used in this study: a low viscosity grade PA (PA-30), as well as a high viscosity grade PA (PA-90). The composite polymers were tested to evaluate their thermal, physical, and mechanical properties. It was concluded that ...

High thermally conductive PLA based composites with tailored hybrid network of hexagonal boron nitride and graphene nanoplatelets

Polyactic acid (PLA)-micro hexagonal boron nitride (hBN)-graphene nanoplatelet (GNP) polymer composites were prepared, and the effects of varying filler contents on the thermal and mechanical properties of the polymer composites were investigated. It was determined that the addition of the GNPs resulted in a decrease in thermal conductivity in comparison to a PLA-hBN composite unless the GNP:hBN ratio was 1:1, where the thermal conductivity was equal to that ...

Effective thermal conductivity and diffusivity of GeSeSb glasses measured simultaneously as a function of temperature and fit to empirical equations

The effective thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity was measured for chalcogenide glass samples of the formulation Ge30-xSe70Sbx (x = 10, 15, 20, 25). It was found that both the effective thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity were independent of temperature up to 160º C. After this point, both properties were found to increase with increasing temperature until they reached a maximum value at a point near the glass transition temperature of the glass. After reaching ...

Enhancement of electrical, thermal and mechanical properties of carbon nanotube additive Se85Te10Ag5 glassy composites

A chalcogenide glass was prepared and doped with carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in an effort to increase the electrical and thermal conductivity of the glass. The glass that was used in this study was Se85Te10Ag5 which was prepared by melt-quenched method. CNTs were added to the glass at 3 and 5 wt. % and the properties of the composite glasses were compared with those of the pure chalcogenide glass. It was found ...

A slug calorimeter for evaluating the thermal performance of fire resistive materials

An equation for determining the effective thermal conductivity of fire resistive materials using a slug calorimeter was developed, and effective thermal conductivities were measured during heating and cooling cycles of these materials. The obtained values were compared to those obtained through measurements using the hot wire, and transient plane source methods. It was determined that the obtained values were in good agreement with those measured using these two methods. The ...
