Chemical modification of tannin/furanic rigid foams by isocyanates and polyurethanes

Polymeric tannin/furanic foams fortified with polyurethane (PUR) and 4,4’ diphenylmethane diisocyanate (pMDI) were prepared. The thermo-physical and mechanical properties of the produced foams were investigated experimentally.  It was found that since there were a number of active isocyanate groups on the PUR that was used, ...

Preparation and Insulation Property Studies of Thermoplastic PMMA-Silica Nanocomposite Foams

Poly(methyl methacrylate)-silica nanocomposite (PSN) foams were formulated for the comparison of the effect of vinyl-modified silica (VMS) and raw silica (RS) particles on cell structure, insulation properties, and insulation properties. It was found that those thermoplastic foams containing VMS particles had improved dispersion ...

On thermal conductivity of micro- and nanocellular polymer foams

Finite element and molecular dynamics models were used to study the effect of pore size and porosity on the thermal conductivity of polymeric foams. These models were then verified by measurements made using the transient plane source technique. It was determined that the pore size ...

Heat transfer in microcellular polystyrene/multi-walled carbon nanotube nanocomposite foams

Polystyrene/multi-walled carbon nanotube (PS/MWCNT) nanocomposite foams were prepared in order to determine if these foams exhibited a reduced thermal conductivity in comparison to pristine polystyrene foam. The thermal conductivity of foams can be broken down into three modes of conduction: gas conductivity, solid ...
