Thermal conductivity improvement of composite carbon foams based on tannin-based disordered carbon matrix and graphite fillers

Composite carbon foams were prepared by mixing tannin-based resin with various graphite powders in an effort to improve the thermal conductivity relative to pristine carbon foams in order to use them as hosts for phase-change materials. It was found that using graphite powder with smaller particle sizes resulted in foams with a higher bulk density than those prepared with an equal amount of larger graphite particles, this increased density resulted ...

Enhanced thermal and mechanical properties of epoxy composites filled with silver nanowires and nanoparticles

The authors have investigated the use of silver nanomaterials as a filler in epoxy resin in an effort to identify a composite resin with a high thermal conductivity for application as a thermal interface material. It was determined that the addition of silver nanoparticle and silver nanowires both increased the thermal conductivity of the resin, but the silver nanowires caused a much more drastic increase. It was found that by ...

Rapid fabrication of aluminum shoe mold using vacuum sealed casting process

The authors present a method of preparing an aluminum shoe mold by a novel process called vacuum sealed casting. It was determined that the prototype shoe should be made of a resin, and then the mold should be made of aluminum. A composite resin was chosen such that the thermal conductivity, dimension accuracy, and wear resistance were greater than those of the pristine resin. The use of the aluminum mold ...

Core-shell structure design of pulverized expandable graphite particles and their application in flame-retardant rigid polyurethane foams

The authors describe a synthesis method for a series of pulverized expandable graphite (pEG)/melamine-formaldehyde (MF) resin core-shell structure particles. The particles are also added into rigid polyurethane foams (RPUF) to characterize the flame-retardant, mechanical, and thermal insulation properties of the RPUF/pEG-MF composites. It was found that the pEG/MF particles showed good flame-retardant performance in the composites by providing a physical barrier effect....

Facile fabrication of multi-walled carbon nanotubes and its enhancement on thermally conductive adhesive applied in heat dissipation devices 

The purpose of this study was to develop adhesive epoxy resins that used multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) to enhance thermal conductivity and dispersion in the polymer matrix. An analyzer measured the thermal conductivity of the MWCNTs-based epoxy adhesives using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that the addition of MWCNTs improved the coefficient of thermal conductivity of the epoxy resin in comparison to pristine epoxy and epoxy (EP)...
