High quality in Multi-component injection molding

This paper is focused on a new adhesion-modified TPE-V series called Alfater XL 4PA0010 for high quality PA-based hard/soft combinations. These adhesion-modified TPE-V grades offer good bonding to a broad range of PA6 and PA66 including non-reinforced, glass fiber reinforced, and impact-modified PA. They are suitable for conventional 2-shot injection molding as well as for cold insert molding. Influences on the bonding, like the injection molding conditions or additives in the compounds or furthermore high moisture contents of PA have been examined. more...

Tribology of CNT filled Epoxy

Tribological Behavior of Epoxy Reinforced with Carbon Nanotubes and filled by Vegetables Oils

The influence of reinforcing epoxy by carbon nanotubes (CNT) and filling by different types of vegetables oils (olive, corn, sunflower, sesame, almond and paraffin oil) on the friction coefficient (µ) and wear resistance is investigated. CNTs of 0.25, 0.5, 0.75 and 1 wt. % content have been added to epoxy matrix mixed by 10 wt. […] more...

Understanding the Behavior of the Coupling Agents TESPT and SI 363 in short-cut Aramid Fibre reinforced Elastomers

In this study the coupling agents Bis-(triethoxysilylpropyl) tetrasulfide (TESPT) and mercaptopropyl-mono-ethoxypolyether-silane (Si 363) are compared to each other in a standard SBR formulation for adhesion-activated epoxy-coated short-cut aramid fibres. Comparing TESPT with Si 363 with the help of a design of experiments approach gives a better understanding of the relevant factors, in order to judge […] more...

Magnetic and dielectric Properties

PMMA Nanocomposites based on Laser fragmented Fe3O4 Nanoparticles

Laser photo fragmentation technique has been utilized as a versatile method to produce magnetite (Fe3O4) nanoparticles. It was found that, the diode laser beam with wavelength 808 nm is the most effective one, as it reduces the particle size of Fe3O4 to 5.5-26 nm. Casting technique was used to prepare nanocomposites based on polymethyl methacrylate […] more...

Stress-Strain Curves of BR, NBR and SBR

Synchrotron WAXS Studies of stretched Natural and Synthetic Rubber Networks showing an Upturn in Stress-Strain Curves*

Natural rubber (NR) displays very distinct stress-strain curve with an upturn in the stress at high elongations while most synthetic rubbers do not. This behavior has been associated with strain-induced crystallization. Here we show that three non-crystallizing weak synthetic rubbers, i.e. BR, NBR and SBR, could be reinforced in such a way that their stress-strain […] more...

The Use of New Additives in the Processing of White And Black Filled Compounds Based On The Diamine Crosslinking System

The benefits of a new additive range for use in diamine crosslinked polymers from Schill+Seilacher “Struktol” GmbH are demonstrated. Rubber Compounds were mixed based on AEM (Vamac) – and HNBR (HP Zetpol) polymers. Struktol HT 740, Struktol HT 750 or Struktol HT 760 demonstrated different activity levels towards the surface of active white fillers and […] more...

Magneto-Active Elastomers: Effect of the Particle Dispersion on the Switching Ability

As magneto-active elastomers rubber composites based on highly elastic polymer matrix filled with magnetic barium ferrite (BaFe12O19) particles were investigated. Due to the high ratio of surface to volume and magnetization are magnetic particles prone to aggregate. To enhance the dispersion and the compatibility between the particle and the rubber matrix a functionalization of the […] more...

Effect of nanoparticulate Zinc Oxide on the Properties of natural Rubber Vulcanizates produced by Latex Compounding

Zinc oxide (ZnO) plays a major role in the accelerated sulphur vulcanization process. Nano ZnO at different levels were incorporated into natural rubber latex (NR) and the properties of the resulting vulcanizates were compared with conventional micro ZnO incorporated into films. The latex compounds (containing micro and nano ZnO) were cast into sheets and cured. […] more...

Sulfur and peroxide curing of Rubber Compounds based on NR and NBR. Part I: cross-linking and physical-mechanical Properties

NR- and NBR- compounds were prepared by applying a mix of sulfur and peroxide curing systems. The aim was to investigate the influence of curing system composition on curing process and physical-mechanical properties. The determination of cross-link density and the structure of cross-links were under concern. All parameters were changed in dependence on the composition […] more...
