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 change with the addition of the coupling agent, however the stiffness and tensile strength of the samples did increase....

Effect of Temperature on Thermal and Mechanical Properties of Steel Bolts

High-strength steel used in bolts was tested for its thermo-physical properties in order to determine how steel bolts would respond in a fire. It was determined that the thermal and mechanical properties of the steel were dependent on temperature, and that the thermal conductivity of the steel was also dependent on carbon content. The thermal conductivity of the three types of steel that were tested was found to be the ...

Enhanced thermally conductivity and mechanical properties of polyethylene (PE)/boron nitride (BN) composites through multistage stretching extrusion

This study aimed to enhance the thermal and mechanical properties of polyethylene (PE)/boron nitride (BN) composites by manipulating the BN concentrations in the matrix and by applying shear fields in laminating-multiplying elements (LMEs). A thermal constants analyzer measured the thermal conductivity of the PE/BN composites using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that the thermal conductivity of the composites increased with BN concentration. As well, the ...

Dispersion and exfoliation of graphene in rubber by an ultrasonically-assisted latex mixing and in situ reduction process 

In this paper, natural rubber (NR)/graphene (GE) composites were prepared using an ultrasonically-assisted latex mixing and in situ reduction (ULMR) process. A thermal constants analyzer measured the thermal conductivity of the NR/GE composites using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that GE had a good thermal conductivity, and can be used as a thermal conductivity enhancer in polymers....

Dispersion and Exfoliation of Graphene in Rubber by an Ultrasonically-Assisted Latex Mixing and In situ Reduction Process

Natural rubber/graphene (NR/GE) composites were prepared by ultrasonically-assisted latex mining and an in situ reduction process, followed by latex coagulation to obtain the masterbatch. It was determined that this method of preparing the NR/GE composites resulted in an increase in tensile strength when compared to conventional direct mixing. A variety of properties of the composites were investigated, including: thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, specific heat, maximum torque, crosslink ...
