Performance of biocomposites from surface modified regenerated cellulose fibers and lactic acid thermoset bioresin

In this study, researchers set out to test the performance of biocomposites reinforced with regenerated cellulose fibers and lactic acid thermoset bioresin. A difference in treatments was conducted as the cellulose fibers were surface treated with either silane or alkali. The main goal of this ...

Preparation of low-density polyethylene/low-temperature expandable graphite composites with high thermal conductivity by an in situ expansion melt blending process

Low-temperature expandable graphite (LTEG) was blended into low-density polyethylene (LDPE) to prepare composite materials with an enhanced thermal conductivity in comparison to pure LDPE. The thermal conductivity of a composite containing 60 wt. % LTEG was found to be increased by a factor of 23 in comparison to ...

Effects of a titanate coupling agent on the mechanical and thermo-physical properties of talc-reinforced polyethylene compounds

The effect of a titanate coupling agent on the thermal conductivity of talc filled high density polyethylene. Moisture content and mechanical properties were studied in addition to thermal conductivity. Samples with and without the isopropyl tri(dioctyl)phosphate titanate were investigated. Thermal conductivity did not ...

Processing of polyurethane/carbon nanotubes composites using novel minimixer

Polytetramethylene ether glycol (PTMEG) was used to functionalize multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWNT) by grafting to produce MWNT-g-PTMEG. These functionalized nanotubes were then dispersed in thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) to form a TPU/MWNT nanocomposite. It was found that the functionalization resulted in improved dispersion of the ...

In situ polymerization of methyl methacrylate/multi-walled carbon nanotube composites using cationic stearyl methacrylate copolymers as dispersants

Multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT)/poly (methyl methacrylate) composites were prepared and their mechanical and physical properties were examined. An amphiphilic copolymer was used to aid in dispersing the MWCNTs throughout the composite. It was found that the use of this copolymer resulted in a good ...
