But “truth” is not a material. . . suggest we see if it applies to polymer stretching also ☺?
Abstract A new family of crosslinked polyurethanes was synthesized and characterized as shape-memory polymers. Three-arm network junctions are provided by 1,1,1-trimethylol propane with an isocyanate… (More)
In addition to chemical interactions, the physical arrangement of themolecules plays an important role.
Polyurethane elastomers (PUs) with similar chemical structures based on hard segments of 4,4′-dibenzyl diisocyanate and soft segment poly(ethylene adipate) and extended with a low-molecular-weight… (More)
Abstract Cyclic tensile responses of fourteen polyurethane elastomers were studied, with respect to their chemical composition and physical structure. Hard segment, soft segment and chain extender… (More)
A systematic investigation was made of the effects of varying hard and soft segment chemistry, crosslinking and preparation procedures, on the mechanical response of melt-cast polyurethane… (More)
Thermoplastic polyurethane elastomers enjoy an exceptionally wide range of applications due to their remarkable versatility. These block co-polymers are used here as an example of a structurally… (More)
The strain-induced softening of thermoplastic polyurethane elastomers (TPUs), known as the Mullins effect, arises from their multi-phase structure. We used the combination of small- and wide- angle… (More)
The solid state postcure reaction mechanism of polyurethane elastomers (PU) synthesized using a relatively small excess (up to 10%) of isocyanate was studied. The postcure process succeeds especially… (More)
