Novel lightweight and highly thermally insulative silica aerogel-doped poly (vinyl chloride)-coated fabric composite

In this research silica aerogels were incorporated into PVC fabrics by the research team to improve the overall performance of the fabrics. The aerogel was added in percent fractions of 0, 2, 3, and 4%. Comprehensive analysis of physical and mechanical properties was also performed. Thermal conductivity measurements revealed that the addition of the silica aerogel had reduced the thermal conductivity of the fabric; when 4% silica was added, the thermal conductivity dropped by 26%. As ...

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....
