Heat transfer in polypropylene-based foams produced using different foaming processes 

Polypropylene (PP) foams are commercially manufactured in four ways, with each method producing different characteristics. The aim of this paper was to examine the properties of each PP-based foam and compare their thermal behaviors and conductivities. A thermal constant analyzer was used to measure the thermal conductivity of the foam samples with the transient plane source (TPS) technique. Results showed that thermal conductivity varied for each production method, but density ...

Heat transfer of mineral-filled polypropylene foams 

Minerals are often added to polypropylene (PP) foams to improve thermal conductivity. The aim of this study was to test and compare the thermal conductivity of unfilled, magnesium hydroxide (Mg(OH)2)-, and montmorillonite (MMT)-reinforced PP foams. An analyzer measured the thermal conductivity of the polypropylene foams using the Transient Plane Source (TPS) method. Results showed that thermal conductivity increased with foam density and with magnesium concentration....
