Experiments were performed to validate the model for the nucleation of microcellular foams in amorphous thermoplastic polymers. The polystyrene-zinc stearate system was chosen as the model system. Other additives such as stearic acid and carbon black were also investigated. Molecular weight and orientation effects were studied. Nitrogen and carbon dioxide were used to produce the microcellular bubbles. Results show that amounts of soluble additives at levels just below their solubility limit… CONTINUE READING
