Physical properties of thermoplastic/graphite composites
Abstract Thermal and electrical conductivity, thermal diffusivity of high density polyethylene, polystyrene/graphite composites were investigated in this paper. Two different types of graphiteExpand
Electrically and thermally conductive polyethylene/graphite composites and their mechanical properties
Abstract Electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity and ultimate mechanical properties, namely elongation at break and stress at break of low and high density polyethylene/graphite composites wereExpand
FTIR spectroscopy study of polyamide-6 irradiated by electron and proton beams
Polyamide-6 (PA-6) irradiated by a 500 kGy electron beam (EB) dose or by 500 and 1000 kGy proton beam (PB) doses was examined by FTIR spectroscopy, crosslinked portion determination, DSC and tensileExpand
Relation between electrical and mechanical properties of conducting polymer composites
The influence of the carbon black content on the mechanical and electrical properties of polypropylene/carbon black composites prepared by different processing procedures was investigated. TheExpand
Investigation of the correlation between electrical conductivity and elongation at break in polyurethane-based adhesives
Electrical conductivity and elongation at break of polyurethane (PU) filled with two different grades of graphite, Ag-coated basalt particles and fibres were investigated in this paper. PercolationExpand
Thermal degradation of plasticized poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) investigated by DSC
The thermal degradation of poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB) in the presence of two plasticizers (glycerol, glycerol triacetate) was investigated by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The thermalExpand
Changes of physical properties of PLA-based blends during early stage of biodegradation in compost.
With rising time of degradation in compost, both number and weight molecular masses were decreasing progressively, but only marginal change of the polydispersity index was observed which indicates that biodegradation is not random process. Expand
Polyhydroxyalkanoates: Origin, Properties and Applications
Publisher Summary This chapter deals with polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs), a class of biodegradable polyesters produced by various bacteria, but which can also be synthesized chemically. The bacterialExpand
