Insulation rigid and elastic foams based on albumin

This article discusses the creation and characterization of albumin based rigid and elastic foams. These foams were created using formaldehyde as the hardener for the protein, while camphor was used as the plasticizer. Crosslinking was carried out using a traditional or microwave oven. Samples differed ...

Thermal Characterization of Lauric–Stearic Acid/Expanded Graphite Eutectic Mixture as Phase Change Materials

Expanded graphite (EG) was added to lauric acid (LA)-stearic acid (SA) phase change materials to enhance their thermal conductivities. The PCMs were prepared in varying mass fractions of LA and SA, and 10 wt. % of EG was added. The phase change temperature and phase change ...

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, ...

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 ...

Thermal energy storage performance of paraffin-based composite phase change materials filled with hexagonal boron nitride nanosheets

A paraffin-based composite phase change material (PCM) was prepared by the addition of hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) nanosheets to melted paraffin wax followed by vigorous stirring. The nanosheets were added in quantities ranging from 1 to 10 wt. %. A reference sample of pure paraffin was also prepared. ...
