Effective thermal conductivity of three-phase styrene butadiene composites

The thermal conductivity and diffusivity of a series of three-phase styrene butadiene composites were investigated using the transient plane source (TPS) technique. Both of the series contained a variable amount of natural rubber, as well as variable amounts of silica and clay. The thermal properties decreased sharply at 10 phr filling, but increased subsequently after that. It was determined that silica resulted in better (higher) thermal properties as compared to clay....

Thermal conductivity of styrene butadiene rubber compounds with natural rubber prophylactics waste as filler

Presently, converting waste into reusable materials is a high priority among researchers. This study presents the idea of recycling the natural rubber (NR) from latex condom waste, for its use as a potential filler in styrene butadine rubber (SBR). To properly understand the SBR material ratio aspect, thermal behaviour monitoring, such as thermal conductivity measurements using the Transient Plane Source method, was performed. A linear increase in thermal conductivity of ...

Thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity analyses of low-density polyethylene composites reinforced with sisal, glass and intimately mixed sisal/glass fibres

The thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of SRP (sisal-reinforced polyethylene), GRP (glass-reinforced polyethylene), and GSRP (sisal/glass hybrid fibre-reinforced polyethylene) were tested from 120 to 350K. Results showed variances in thermal conductivity values with varying temperatures in materials containing different orientations of sisal fibres. Due to the anisotropic nature of the SRP fibre, there is a difference in the thermal conductivity readings from the parallel to the perpendicular direction. The GRP ...
