Extinction coefficient of polyolefin foams

This article focused on determining the extinction coefficient of polyolefin foams. A combination of experimental and theoretical methods were used to accomplish this goal. Samples differed from each other in terms of thickness, chemical composition, colour, density, and structural characteristics. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy was ...

Production, cellular structure and thermalconductivity of microcellular (methylmethacrylate)–(butyl acrylate)–(methylmethacrylate) triblock copolymers

Microcellular (methylmethacrylate)-(butyl acrylate)-(Methylmethacrylate) triblock copolymer foams were prepared by a foaming process using CO2. CO2 was first dissolved into sheets of the polymer, and then the pressure was released over different time periods, from 2 to 30 minutes. The density, cellular structure, and ...

Structure and physical properties of EVA/starch precursor materials for foaming applications

Synthetic polymers in starch-based polymer formulations improve the thermal and mechanical properties of the compounds. The purpose of this study was to develop and analyze foams containing ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) and varying concentrations of corn starch. A Thermal Constants Analyser measured the thermal conductivity of ...
