Industrial Benchmark PU-Foams with expandable Graphite/P-Flame Retardant Combinations

Polyurethane foams (PUF) are generally flammable, so they are limited in some applications due to strict fire safety requirements. In this study, three distinct industrial benchmark polyurethane foams containing synergistic combinations of expandable graphite (EG) and phosphorous flame retardants (P-FR) were investigated one by one for their fire performance and smoke behavior.Weiterlesen...

EPDM Rubber Compound was prepared by using two roll mills according to ASTM D 3182

Synthesis and Characterization of EPDM loaded with Zinc/Carbon black Hybrid Filler

The rubber was loaded with hybrid fillers of carbon black (CB) and Zinc (Zn) metal. The hybrid filler consists of CB (30 phr ISAF + 40 phr SRF) as a primary fixed filler and Zn metal (5, 20, 40, 60 and 75 phr) as a secondary filler where ISAF and SRF are the well-known Intermediate Super Abrasion Furnace carbon black and Semi Reinforcing Furnace carbon black.Weiterlesen...

The influence of hydroxyl modified nanoscale rubber particles (Nanoprene) on the properties of silica loaded unvulcanizated and vulcanized rubber compounds was evaluated

Reinforcing Mechanisms of Filler hybrid Systems based on Nano-scale Rubber Particles and Silica

It was found that in unvulcanized compounds filler flocculation was reduced by either silanization or by the addition of Nanoprene. The reduction of filler flocculation was most pronounced when the silica compound contained Nanoprene and was also silanized. The good filler dispersion, which was achieved by the combination of both measures, was preserved during and after vulcanization.Weiterlesen...

Modern Elastomers must fulfill several technical Requirements, especially with increasing Focus on light-weighing of Composites

Engineered Polysaccharides and Reinforcement of Elastomers

The subject of this work is on the study of an engineered polysaccharide system as reinforcing filler for rubber composites. This new class of tailored polysaccharides is based on the direct and selective enzymatic polymerization of sucrose in water to α-1.3-glucans with tailored morphologies. The incorporation of this filler system by latex compounding with NBR showed clearly a reinforcing effect in several physical properties.Weiterlesen...

The Erosion Behavior of epoxy/ Coatings by solid Particles Impact was Investigated

Erosive Wear of Surfaces Coating by Epoxy / TiO2 Nanocomposite

One of the most widely used industrial coatings is epoxy surface coatings, which provides excel-lent adhesion and wear resistance when applied to metal surfaces. The erosion behavior of epoxy/ coatings by solid particles impact was investigated. The coating epoxy is equipped with dispersing TiO2 nanoparticles (NPs) directly into the epoxy resin. The erosion experiments tested using sand impact with particles sizes 150-300 µm at jet impingement angles of 30°, 60° and 90°.90°.Weiterlesen...
